I’m using SearchBirdseyeInFlight to look for low altitude flights near my home. It finds some, but doesn’t work as I expected. The documentation says that this endpoint searches “flight data representing approximately the last 24 hours”. However, it appears to only give me very recent flights, or perhaps only flights that are still in the air. Flights returned by one call are often not returned by call I make a few minutes later.
I must be missing something basic.
How do I tell it that I want all the flights for the last 24 hours, or however many it has available?
I’m guessing that the time window defaults to something that’s inappropriate for my search, and I need to change it. There is nothing in the documentation about defaults tho.
