FlightAware and Military traffic?

Hi All,

Why doesn’t FlightAware see any military traffic here in the UK?



From time to time I got an view into Hungary (right now on radar callsigns: Puma61, Puma62, Puma63, Puma64, Titan01 and Titan02 over Balaton Lake probably exercise) but that happens only from time to time, Slovenia too, in Austria I haven’t see anyone on radar. I guess so long they are not transmitting you wont see them.

Take care

P.S. Noticed also Maiden81 477FF0 (zero at end) also under hungarian flag…

Data obtained using Virtual Radar Server, the build-in map from Piaware is not showing this data

you will but depends on the type of aircraft and whether or not it is on an operational flight I guess.

some more discussion here: ads-b-flight-tracking-f21/will-military-planes-show-up-t38847.html

You can also see military planes from Austria if you receive the Mode-S and you are lucky enough to have some other MLAT-Stations around. :slight_smile:

I also see a lot of US Army planes, US Airforce, Slovakian Airforce, Nato Flights at Hungary (AWACS). the hungarian Airforce, sometimes RAF, etc… it all depends on MLAT.
