This will be my last message about this.
On this 2019-07-15 at around 17:00, I turned FlightRadar24.com 
<https://www.flightradar24.com/44.56,3.51/8> on to show the route of the 
10th stage of the Tour de France: Saint-Flour -> Albi 
I clicked a few planes along the route until I pinned one that FR24 
labels with a made-up name BE20. It circled in rounds all along he 
track, probably to relay TV signals. You will probably be able to watch 
it during the next stages. (⚠ Tuesday 16 is resting day). Unfortunately, 
albeit F24 archives the history of most flights for replay, it does not 
archive this plane, like e.g. most gliders.
Then I waited until BE20 went nanight in Castres Mazamet Airport 
<https://www.flightradar24.com/airport/dcm> to take this picture.
Beware that the pasted over data is that when the plane was above Albi.
In Castres it was less high and going down. And it had a more decided 
speed ;-)

I thought that this could add loving to watch planes to your loving to 
map the land under.
For example, replay the history of this service plane 
<https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/oo-let/> and wonder why it 
goes to those places all over the world to fly in circles. Similar trips 
for this helicopter 
<https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/f-gkmb#21364fc1> that I 
found in Albi, Lyon, Brussels near the Tour de France.

All the best,
