Aircraft.json file

I am beginner looking for the aircraft.json file. I am running Node Red using my Windows laptop. Where do I get the aircraft.json file? I tried http://localhost:8080/data/aircraft.json and it did not work. Thanks.

What code are you looking at that references that filename?

I’d guess this is the aircraft.json which is generated by dump1090-fa as part of a PiAware install to support the SkyAware maps. It is not part of AeroAPI/FlightXML.

Do you have a PiAware or dump1090-fa install?

Open your local skyaware / dump1090-fa in the browser an press F12, look at the network tab in the dev console.
From there you can get the URL.
