Viewing flights?

I was able to click on local airport and see the airspace over our area. I could expand that area and see all flights that were flying over our area. Now when I do that all I can see are flights that originated or are going to that airport. Any thoughts?

Was it Langley AFB or Northeast Virginia area?

Hover over the map and click on the plus sign located at the upper right hand corner of the screen. Once you click on that to expand the menu click on “vicinity”. This should change the map to show green and blue airplanes. A recent update went into effect and everyone’s maps were reset. Thank you for contacting FlightAware and have a great rest of your day.

Thanks so much- I live in northern maine right over the flight path to Europe and have had a blast checking out the planes and where they are going. Works fine again
