Help is here for the busiest travel day of the year

Thanksgiving is Thursday, and that means the beginning of travel season. Reports of crowded airports and delayed flights are sure to follow. Wolfram Alpha, the self-described “computational knowledge engine,” has come up with a new function that lets you figure out what airplanes are flying over you. Type in “flights overhead” in its search area, wait a few seconds and you can see exactly when Mother will arrive. Of course now you really don’t have any excuse for being late to the airport.
