Flying in Berlin's sky, an Afternoon Investigation is a guided research
into the people flying over Berlin. Every day, aircrafts criss-cross the
airspace above the city: private jets, military planes, and the regular
tourist flights. Where do they go? Who owns them? What are they doing?
If you head to most websites tracking planes, you’ll only see the
scheduled Lufthansa or Eurowings flights. Boring.

In this real-time investigation, we’ll first head outdoors to
Tempelhofer Feld and setup our own antennas to detect all the things
flying above us. Then, we’ll bring the data back to the “lab” at
Supermarkt to analyse it, find some interesting planes and investigate
them. You don’t know what we’ll find, and neither do we!

At the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to setup your own ADSB
antenna to detect planes (which you can buy for under €50) and analyse
the data you collect.
