Output piaware plane string to local system/file

Hi

I’m trying to get the string output to dissect on my own PC, similarly to how a website would do this.

So from my raspberry pi, I am trying to get a plane’s details on separate computer on the same network. Wasn’t sure if it’s best (or possible) to extract from the flight aware website or if I could add another feeder. In particular, I’m trying to get a plane’s name/lat/long/alt

Would anyone mind helping with where to go and how to do this? Thanks

Does the json format tell you something?

http://pi/dump1090-fa/data/aircraft.json

That file is updated every second.
Replace pi with the IP-address of your pi.

Exactly what I wanted thank you!!!
