    Because they don't show up on FR24 it's more difficult to get a good photo of one since you don't know they are coming.
    I got lucky for 2 reasons.
    1. I had my good camera on me
    2. It was nice and sunny.

    Silvertouran,

    I've found this shortcoming can be overcome by using a scanner (or LiveATC if available in your country) which is how I managed to track aircraft before FR24 and the like came along. Learning their frequencies, departure and approach patterns etc was all part of the fun. To then get a good pic was even more satisfying. Over time I've become more proficient at knowing when they'll fly overhead.

    Hope this is of some help,
    Regards,
    Gregg
