    Yep. Just shy of 111,000 ft

    25-04 18:33 N351WQ

    It was patchy from 530 as it got closer to the antennas oval limits at a guess. Or they switched off ADSB onto sat only. Not sure as was off FR24 for quite some time while still over land.

    You can see the 90,000ft winds here and follow its probable path

    I love that site. Other than it being actually useful it's just such a cool map that you can sit and stare at. Was looking at it yesterday morning, then didn't look at it again.

    Hi all,
    Got a couple of toys here if anyone is interested.

    I have been playing with the vector graphics in PiAware for sometime now and have just updated my code to work with PiAware 3.5.0.

    There are two things you need to make this work well here in NZ, a descent JSON database and the new markers.js file. I have been building the JSON DB now from scratch since last year and it now has most of the locally visiting fleets and is up to daye with CAAs NZ register as of about two weeks ago.

    PLEASE MAKE BACKUPS FIRST!

    To use this you need to replace the markers.js file in /usr/share/dump1090-fa/html

    Then delete all the JSON files in the /usr/share/dump1090-fa/html/db and replace them with the contents of the attached zip.

    You will need to reload the browser completely, I suggest testing with private/incognito mode.

    There is one notable bug I have not been able to fix, I cannot get the outline on the aircraft to change when selected without considerable recoding.

    When done you too can have this view:

    Here are the links to the files:

    Enjoy!

    Indeed. Last year didn't appear to go anywhere near as long as the loons and tests prior. I recall having one come past 3 or so times

    A quick question, do all aircraft have to have a transponder running?

    I often am sitting at home and hear something in the sky so look it up on my local PiAware and there is nothing there. Main culprits seem to be some light aircraft and helicopters, esspecially the Police one (kind of makes sense if they don't use one). I am configureds for MLAT so usually see those.

    Your mlats are only on those with ssr transponders but no gps integration. Or position tx off.

    Those that don't appear at all are vfr only at a guess. Usually small AC that don't go near high enough for commercial airspace control possibly

    Plenty of STOL and home builts with none. Guess there's some rulings around being fitted with one and not

    The following seems to include the time frame etc for ADS-B fitment in New Zealand;
    http://www.nss.govt.nz/the-plan/surveillance/

    If it's anything like Australia there will be exceptions as you've noted.

    There's a little more info here although I haven't read the entire document/s;
