Which is the best of all the various apps for this sort of stuff?

I have Flightradar 24 but it does not show all the military traffic we get over North Lincolnshire including American stuff.

Thanks

I use 360Radar but you have to either subscribe or contribute.

I contribute so get access for free - just a usb stick to buy and setup in your PC or attached to a PI and left running to gather the aircraft data and feed it into the system. I bought a decent stick but did my own aerial from some satellite cable so it doesn't cost much to do or maintain - it could be done for £5 but worth spending a bit more on it.

Maxg, Free Planefinder will get you some traffic, but to get the D Day C3, RAF Hawks, Chinooks, Globemasters etc

Pay the £3 On you selected supplier and get what you see above.

Around 2130 yesterday evening while watching swifts flying around our house I was surprised to see three paragliders approaching. They were at different heights and some distance apart but all three passed over us. No idea of their altitude but judging by their apparent relative sizes the first one seemed quite low. . As far as I could tell, there was no sign of any of them have any motive power. I couldn't help wondering if they might be infringing any ANOs. I live barely two miles from the centre of Leeds.

Heard the unmistakable sound of a Tiger Moth at lunchtime, stepped out of the french windows and there she was, a lovely rad and silver Tiger Moth making her leisurely way across the sky. Haven't seen her for a few months. Beautiful

Yesterday we had a full-on display from a P51D Mustang pulling loops and with that amazing supercharger whine in the dives.

We get this a few times a year usually around bank holidays. I'm sure it's the same guy who used to do this with a Yak 55.

We had the Hurricane and Spitfire from Coningsby overhead either yesterday or the day before, can't remember which. The sound drew my attention as you may expect.

Just been listening to a RAF Typhoon overhead for about the last 15 minutes making quite a racket - managed to catch one short glimpse of him in a tight turn, fairly high and making a lovely throaty roar.

Ok guys. I was wondering how the the adsexchange got passed the mods!!

So what is the correct spelling, please? It sounds like a site worth investigating.

ADSB is here: **LINK** - suitable for work unlike the other link wink
360 is here, you can't see it all until you get involved, but it is well worth it and you feel like you are making a difference: **LINK**

Hope that helps

Mark

I live about 8 miles from Eastleigh airfield as it is properly called. Then they got delusions of grandeur and changed the name to 'Southampton International' (which from their traffic apparently meant the Costa Brava) even though it's not in the Southampton county authority. They also discouraged private light aircraft and most general aviation by raising landing fees to nonsense levels.

Then FlyBe went bust (before coronavirus) and that was 95% of their traffic. And the virus has since caused them to lose almost all the other 5%. And with both all their crazy priced car parking revenue.

So 'Southampton International' has been taught a well-deserved salutory lesson about 'hubris' and it's lovely and quiet too

As I drove out after lunch yesterday there was an Osprey flying past.

Some time ago club members reported a couple of Ospreys going past
