Newbie ???/query flights based on route of flight?

I live directly beneath a J route that utilizes the Spartanburg VOR (J14-J37) and wanted to know if there is a way to search FlightAware to see what aircraft are flying overhead based upon their route of flight. Quite often I see 4 engine aircraft and would like to know where they are going and who is operating them. Any ideas?

In search of my next cold one,


Welcome to FlightAware! :slight_smile:

Right now, there is no way to search by route. :confused: The best way to do what you want is to view live tracking for an airport near you. On the map, if vicinity is checked under the + menu, zoom up the map and put you mouse over the green aircraft. That will show you callsign, a/c type, flight level, airspeed, and arrival and departure locations. For specific info on a flight, just click it.

Happy tracking!
