    The point is, some fly over NOT displaying any data, cannot see it on the VirtualRadar Screen but the FR24 receiver is still tracking it and a good example of that was yesterday, 4 Spanish Eurofighters flew so low over my house I could READ the registration numbers on the aircraft with the 70-200mm Zoom on my camera, but on VirtualRadar and FR24 - nada, zip, zilch..... except their altitude, speed, heading, make and model of aircraft.

    There is no other explanation, careflight has NOT requested suppression, so FR24 have taken it upon themselves to implement their own version of the great firewall of china, in fact I recall the time of MH370, there were a number of learjets all suppressed, as for military? some australian military aircraft both rotary and fixed also appear of fr24.
    AM451 appears without fault on planefinder and other feeder sites, but not here that means they are deliberately filtering.

    That document has been around for ages and is directed at aircraft owners/operators. I fail to see the relevance to this particular discussion.

    I just noticed a Boeing Business Jet - very imaginative call sign too - B737!

    The two RAAF BBJ business jets are regularly seen on FR24 despite being classified as military. These carry the leaders of the country.

    I also regularly see Lear jets working in military training roles, although their details are sanitised a bit (no ICAO code, no registration code). Perhaps the assertion that all these are all blocked is wrong.

    Pel-Air's Lear Jets VH-SLD, SLE, SLF and SLJ, use to be used for military training but now stored, were sanitised (would be shown but ICAO/Rego and call sign hidden) and not blocked. Maybe it has been easier to sanitise all LJ45 aircraft (most of which are private and military), I don't know but we can only assume.

    Looking a little more, only three of the seven Pel-Air's IAI 1124 Westwind (four of which have with ADS-B) are not hidden (VH-KNR, KNS and KNU).

    RAAF BBJ VIP aircraft now only appear of FR as aircraft type ie B737, other sites still show the normal information on these aircraft. I'll say it again, FR has taken a shotgun approach to blocking information
    on aircraft.

    I think all C-13O aircraft information is hidden too.
    Even the C-130 Fire Fighting Air Tanker (VLAT)

    I think you're right, I did notice that N405LC (Lockheed L100-30) was 'sanitised' when it flew south for a fire in Victoria a month or so ago.
