Keeping history of tracks

Is is possible to store the history of tracked flights from my PiAware instance? I could write an extractor that hits the http://<IP ADDRESS>:8080/data/aircraft.json endpoint but I was hoping there would be an existing and more elegant solution. Cheers Team

There are some scripts available on Github which are doing what you’re probably looking for.
One of these is this example:

A more comfortable solution would be using VirtualRadarServer which contain a Database and Reporting functionality

Might not be what you want as there is no indexing of the flights, but if you know a day and hex, you can easily view the track in high resolution: GitHub - wiedehopf/tar1090: Provides an improved webinterface for use with ADS-B decoders readsb / dump1090-fa
Well there is also /?r which isn’t really documented to replay the written heatmap files for a specific timeframe.

Again, little documentation so be warned.
