Skyview Aircraft Altitude

On the Skyview display, when the aircraft icons overlap, the aircraft with the lowest altitude seems to be displayed on top. Is there a setting that I can change to reverse this, so that the lower aircraft are displayed under the higher altitude aircraft?
ALT1

I’ve looked at the dump1090-fa source code which should be the same code in regards to that.

I have no idea why the lower planes are displayed in front, so i can’t tell you how to change it.
Pretty sure there is no setting for it.

I believe openlayers does have support for per-feature z ordering, but I haven’t experimented with that at all. Potentially you could set a z-index per aircraft that was derived from altitude.
