Aircraft ADS-B - UK

Not to be used for navigation

Always wanted to know what that plane was overhead, now you can. Flightradar24 shows live airplane traffic from different parts around the world. The technique to receive flight information from aircraft is called ADS-B, ADS-B stands for Automatic Dependant Surveillance - Broadcast. This broadcast technology is very similar to the marine Automatic Identification System (AIS) navigation system that is freely broadcast by ships, yachts and marine vessels across the world.

Flightradar24.com can only show information about aircraft equipped with ADS-B transponders. Today about 60% of the passenger aircraft and only a small amount of military and private aircraft have an ADS-B transponder.
Please Note :
The data is supplied by individuals from all over the world. As such, no guarantee can be made as to the accuracy, timeliness, quality or fitness of the data for any other purpose than aviation enthusiast activities
10 minute timeout, sorry does not work well with Internet Explorer, please use Google Chrome or Firefox.
Only airplanes equipped with an ADS-B transponder within the coverage area of the receivers are visible on the map, the map updates every 30 secs (default, can be changed, see adjustment tab), not all aircraft may show on first load of page, please wait for first refresh. You can zoom in or out using the slider top left or left click and drag the map around to show a different area, plus you can also click on a plane to show details of plane, route, height, speed etc. The color of the trail behind the plane differs depending on the altitude the aircraft had at that position. The numbers are in meter, if the plane is below 100 meters in altitude, the trail will be white.
