    I have just started using Flightradar on my iPad and it's great. I did notice something, I live very close to Edinburgh Airport and was tracking a flight from Faro to Edinburgh. On the official Edinburgh Airport web site they said this flight had landed but on Flightradar it was still over northern England. Does anyone have an explanation for this?

    Thanks. Ron

    I am answering my own question here. Now that the active area of low pressure has moved away from southern Scotland I can once again observe the actual flights from my livingroom window and I have come to the conclusion that Flightradar24 is actially real time and that the on-line information given out by Edinburgh Airport is slow. Great piece of software. Thanks.
