  For flights over Canada listen to CZQM (Moncton Center) or CYYT (Gander Center) you may be able to
hear them there. For flights over the Atlantic try HF ATC Nat A or HF ATC NAT B. Higher frequencies used
during the daytime and lower ones at night. All the above are covered by LiveAtc.

A lot of the time MSP-LHR flights will route further to the north, bypassing Moncton, and you can hear them on the "YUL ACC (Noranda Sector)" radio. On these more typical northern routings they will pass through Minneapolis, Toronto, Montreal and Gander Centers, before going Oceanic on HF.
