  • No planes in sky

    Hi, I've registered to ask this question, hope it's OK? I've googled and read the pinned posts but can't see anything related.
    I've been watching the website for a few days and really getting in to it, but today the sky has been very quiet, in real life and on the website. Now, here's the thing, there were 2 planes showing on the website that should have been passing my house but there hasnt been any! I watched the website as it tracked a small craft going forward and back but not once did I see it! Then there was meant to be a transatlantic flight according to the site, but nothing! Does anyone know why this might be? Thanks

      I see a similar track in that area. I am a long way from there (Phoenix, Arizona). Considering the altitude and track, I would suspect some form of aerial photography. It also resembles crop-dusting, but on a gigantic scale. Maybe anti-mosquito spray, Agent Orange, Anti-Virus, etc. (just kidding). In the desert Southwest USA, that plane type is a favorite of the Border Patrol, Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, and the Drug Enforcement Agency.

        Oh yea, I forgot: About 6 months ago a similar Government Agency plane was doing a rectangular racetrack pattern about 6 miles distant from me and about 6000 ft above ground level. With the phone + app in hand and a good pair of binos, I searched the flight area for about 45 minutes. I'm a retired land surveyor and a bit of an amateur astronomer. I am pretty handy with rough AZ/ELEV comps. If there really was a plane up there, that sucker was totally invisible.
