Re: Whats new on FR24?

Just looking at FR24 and seeing two L-159 ALCA's (G-DKND, COUGAR61 and G-DKNF, COUGAR62), out of Teesside and at 15,000ft over the North Sea, East of Hull. I believe the L-159 is a development of the L-139 Albatross.

Re: Spotter of a different kind

It's a really tiny image. I thought at first, it could be the Thompson Trophy, housed at the San Diego Air and Space Museum (at least it was when I visited). But looking closer it does not match.

Re: Happy Birthday to Kevin Farnell (59)

Thanks everyone. In truth, it was very quiet. I had been planning to go and get some beers, but was feeling extremely tired (I had not slept well for a couple of nights), so ended up going to bed early. Showing my age. I can't believe it's 59. I think I was in my mid 30's when I joined an earlier in...

Re: Rivet Joints now escorted?

In the earlier days of the conflict, I had noticed several aircraft (Usually A330 Voyagers) were accompanied by Typhoons, but as they approached the conflict area (border of Poland/Belarus, or over Romania, close to the black sea) , the fighters would go 'dark' (i.e.disappear from FR24). When the Vo...

As Ben indicated, it is better to only bookmark the top level domain and not a specific page within that domain.
Isn't the homepage (which is what I had bookmarked), the top level domain?

CBFS down?

For the past 24 hours or so, whenever I've clicked on my link to CBFS (on the 'Bookmarks header' of Firefox), I've been taken to just a white screen (I was concerned that CBFS had been hacked). I tried copying and pasting the web address from Firefox into Microsoft Edge, which said that 'This page i...

Re: This is your captain speaking, and some other stuff

I remember the song from when I was a kid, but also seem to remember the video having far more aeroplane footage in it.
