Hmm, it seems to be here.

Package Progress 
Location 	Date 	Local Time 	Description 
GB 	08/08/2007 	15:10 	IN TRANSIT 
PA,  US 	08/08/2007 	10:09 	DEPARTURE SCAN 
	08/08/2007 	1:36 	EXPORT SCAN 
I'm quite amused by the latest two times. 10:09 local time Philadelphia is 15:09 local time East Midlands. So the apparent time taken to cross the Atlantic is 1 minute.

Either that, or the actual time is between 01:36 and 10:09 Philadelphia time, which is much more plausible. 8.5 hours from being scanned aboard an aircraft to being scanned out of it at the far end is very plausible indeed.

It'd be useful if the relevant page actually described what the statuses actually mean.

It's possible after all that it was been sitting waiting for a plane for 8.5 hours, and that the latest time stamp is actually that of take-off. So that'd be a notional 1 minute transfer, with the 'IN TRANSIT' meaning that it's still actually over the Atlantic.

Anyway up, it won't get to the office (its delivery address) before tomorrow.
