  • Click option on dump1090 partial data for or other pics/info

    I've searched the forums for stuff about this, or anything similar, but found nothing - maybe I'm not using the right search terms. But this is what I want to do:

    I'm interested in the planes which don't have enough data to show on FR24 but appear on my dump1090 screen (port 8080). It's mainly military stuff - I live in a Tactical Training Area in UK. They will normally show an ICAO, squawk and altitude, occasionally a flight, but little else. But the ICAO can be used to find out what's playing around up there.

    My manual mode is to put the ICAO into which will give me some details. But that site doesn't allow bots so I found which does, and actually provides scripts.

    So I added an Airport-data button in script.js in /home/pi/dump1090/public_html which comes up in pretty blue alongside FR24/FlightStats/FlightAware when a plane is selected and if clicked it opens a new web page showing something like:


    So OK, I could use the "" link to find out what the plane was.

    But that's not what I want!!!! Because those buttons only come up if the plane has enough data for FR24 to display it and I can look at the FR24 web page anyway then!

    So what I'm after is a way of clicking on a plane that doesn't have a full data set and getting a pic and/or some info about it. That way I'll know what's lurking up there un-plotted by FR24. It doesn't have to be It can be from anywhere provided it isn't a manual operation.

    I can't believe I'm not re-inventing the wheel here. So has anyone set something like that up? If so how? Or even better will you share it?!?!
