Question: How can I determine the elevation that the low flying aircraft flew over my home?

Answer: Using Sacramento Web Trak you can track the flight activity in to and out of all Sacramento County Airports, including Mather Airport. Each flight will show the type of aircraft, elevation above sea level, date, time and flight path. Note: To determine actual elevation the aircraft passed over your home you have to subtract your home’s elevation above sea level from the aircrafts indicated elevation above sea level. Example, subtract home 500′ above sea level from aircraft 3,000′ above sea levels equals 2,500′.  This is the distance that the aircraft passed over your home .
