Will the owner of an aircraft know that I am tracking it.

I have tracked a particular aircraft for a few months. Today I found out that the owner has blocked FA tracking. Is there anyway the owner will know I have been tracking his aircraft? Does FA release this type of data? Thanks

Yes, they will know everything about you. They’ll know what you are wearing and what you last ate. They are tracking you. 8)

Okay, then…What am I wearing??? :smiling_imp:

The usual.

but you recently rearranged your living room furniture.

Woman’s underwear.

Just like everyone else on this site…
But it looks better on me!

Wow. That’s just freaky.

I need a visual.

To answer the original poster’s question: No, they will not know who has been tracking their aircraft. However, they will know who has not been tracking their aircraft.

I think the OP could figure that out…

The real questions here are: 1) Who are you stalking? and 2) Why don’t you want them to know?

:question: :question: :question:
How’re they gonna know I’m not tracking their aircraft? If they could know who is NOT tracking their aircraft, they could use that information, and by process of elimination, find out who IS tracking them :confused:

There in lies the rub. Now follow my logic here.

  1. An aircraft makes holes in the sky
  2. Aircraft cost money.
  3. Therefore when the aircraft flies the holes are filled with money.
  4. By process of elimination if they knew they were throwing their money into the sky the would have known who was tracking but they didn’t know so they only know who is tracking but they cannot figure out who is tracking by process of elimination.

This is what is known as the “please pass me a dozen shots of vodka so I can understand what makes tracking airplane fun syndrome”

khenry: After all this fun at your expense, the serious answer is no, they cannot figure out if you were tracking their aircraft. Aircraft are being blocked every day from the tracking system. It was just coincidental that the aircraft you were tracking became blocked.

Man, I hope you’re not a dude!

Well…, OK if you insist. But you may want to make sure you haven’t just eaten!

Should I send it to you as a PM or just post it?

Some dark, disturbed place deep within myself would actually like to see this James…

OH MY… I just started laughing so hard that I about spit my beer all over the screen. http://forum.digital-digest.com/images/smilies/z7shysterical.gif

Is it just me, or did that make zero sense? Sorry David, that one flew right over my head.
