  • [QUOTEJust saying hello from me!

    Based in AKL, seemed to have got a new found interest in FR24 and aircraft tracking.
    Simple setup, rPI, FA Antenna on order.][/QUOTE]

    Welcome to NZ radar ; not been here much myself lately, but just noticed QF A28 coming in to Christchurch; quite unusual as they usually fly right over to Sydney. Came in at a very deep vector: must have crossed the Antarctic circle. Aussie plane....might have run out of booze

    • The consensus is it needed extra diversion fuel due to loading temp in South America and expected storms in australia causing havoc atm

      • Thought that may have been the problem.....Officially, and maybe a couple more bottles of Sav Blanc for the weary pilots

        • Wish it was under better circumstances.

          But one of the longest flights is currently under way toward CHC. Turkish govt A340 will appear on the mid South island receivers in the next couple of hours. (Hidden from view here, but not 'everywhere')

                Was being worked on this morning. Quite naked looking all white.

                Thought it was to be used for parts, perhaps it may be heading away afterall

                  • Guess you won't be seeing the new AKL choppers despite adding them to dBASE while being tested

                    Someone's obviously requested they be invisible on fr24.

                      • Oh hey, you must be one of the glider gap fillers. Welcome

                        Not really, other than Here where a few of us have said, or if plane plotter owners and registered location on the global map.

                        Everyone's sort of secret squirrel.

                          I am new and set up with rasp pi and 8 metre antenna, I was interested to follow helicopter movements around here, I am a few hundred metres from Southern Lakes Helicopters Hanger, and have many flights a day passing our house each day and some nights. The gliders are maybe just out of range or maybe altitude a bit low for me.

                          I should add that I do recognise some of the local traffic,on the pi, but nothing seems to show on FR24

                            • No true ADSB transponders. Likely mode-S only (or older modeC)

                              So you only get height and not position.
