    Hi Dave.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    The flights are live, maybe delayed by a few seconds.

    Some aircraft do not show on Flightradar24, the aircraft need to have a Mode-S transponder that sends the information to us.

    Have a read of this it explains how it all works.

      thanks for quick reply, just been trying again and now realise that the flight is only active when they have taken off. saffdave

        Hi saffdave

        It will take awhile to get used to all the features, but once you get to know it you will find it a very useful bit of kit.
