  • Plane Positions wrong?

    Hi all,

    I am living in Darmstadt (30 km south of FRA) and many planes pass directly over my house from NW to SE. When tracking planes on your site, they are consistently shown about 1 mile north of my house.

    What could be the reason for this?

    Hi,
    there is only one reason why the position is wrong: the plane is transmitting the wrong position. But this is very rare.
    Please take into consideration that at FR24 there is a update time between 15 and 25 seconds overall (if everything works well). In this time the plane is travelling at least 3-4 km.

      Yes but...

      Thank you for your explanation. Wha makes me wonder is that _all_ planes passing my house are consistently shown at a location where they have never been.

      confused.

        The strangest plane I had seen, was the A400m test-flight about 6-7 nM from their plotted position. Normaly the offset is not greater then 1nM. Most of the planes are very precise on their way. Maybe there is a problem with the basestation feeding FR24?
