Identifying Contrails


#1

I live near LAX and would like to have flight data of (identify) high altitude contrails observed over the coastline. Flight Aware displays too much low altitude local coastal clutter to easily do this. . . . . Request - what tools are best recomended / available for such application? Thanks in advance for all info.

If you click on the map options (the + sign top right) and turn OFF arrivals and departures, you’ll be left with just the overflights (green icons). Zooming in will reduce the number of flights shown until just those in the vicinity of your location appear. Remember there’s a 5-minute(?) position delay.

You can also try radarvirtuel.com/ but coverage is spotty as they rely on user SBS input.
