I'm Being Blocked From Looking Up Tail Numbers


I’ve been doing a lot of research, looking up tail numbers to see if the planes are still flying. It appears my account is being blocked and I can no longer look for aircraft on the Private Flight Tracker. I started using IE for the same purpose and not logging in which does work.

How do I get the block removed?


I don’t think it’s you, think it’s a server issue.


Same problem here frank. you can track by type by using this click here


Hmm, that’s not a feature we’ve invented yet. :slight_smile:

Are you using the search from a forums page? It’s broken right now (last I knew we’re scheduled for a forum upgrade tomorrow), you need to go to the main site before looking up an aircraft.

If you are using the main site, what error are you getting? Can you paste the url you’re being taken to?


You’re correct, it only fails from the Forum page. I hadn’t noticed that.



I don’t remember it doing that before?, but it seems if your on a forum page and you enter a tail number in the Private Flight Tracker, click track flight, I get this.

But if I go to Live Tracking page, works fine.


Geez Frank. Why didn’t you do a search first? :laughing: #sarcasm

Sorry, had to do it. It’s Friday, but we do discover what happened at the end of the thread… :smiley:
