Somewhat similar to Flight Radar is uk.flightaware.com.

Pick an airport/airline/city etc and it shows you the relevant live info. But you can then also track where a particular aircraft came in from by clicking the "track inbound plane" link.

Example rabbithole:
EK89 from Dubai DXB to Geneva GVA
uk.flightaware.com/live/flight/UAE89/history/20190613/0430Z/OMDB/LSGG

Before that route, it was on a Vienna VIE to Dubai DXB leg
uk.flightaware.com/live/flight/UAE126/history/20190612/2055Z/LOWW/OMDB

And before that, it was DXB - VIE
And before that, randomly, it came from Malé MLE - DXB!
And so on.

It's nerdily interesting to see where more short haul jets have been zipping to/from, rather than the long-haul single daily services, but even that is quite interesting if they are e.g. doing repositioning flights.

My son will absolutely love that! He's been glued to flight radar recently. Thank you!
