Seems to be back after several hours downtime. Must be because I posted this thread! :agree: EricT

Both FR24 and Flightaware have been repeatedly attacked in the last week by who know (and really, who cares - idiots the whole lot). Unfortunately, it's not a simple problem to solve as they seem to be DDOS (distributed enial of service) attacks, which are hard to defend against and relies pretty heavily on their internet provider which can be pretty difficult, especially on the weekends (when the attacks started).
