Is it still possible to track Obama and McCain's planes? I was able to up until a couple weeks ago using NAO1 for Obama's flight number and SWQ802 for McCain's flights.

McCain flew from KERI to KMDT today but flightaware doesn't show any 734's arriving or departing either airport. There weren't even any flights from Erie to Harrisburg.

Are their movements now not able to be tracked or am I doing something wrong?

Tracking presidential candidates sounds like something the Secret Service would like to prevent. They may be responsible for your tracking problems.

That's what I'm kind of expecting the answer to be. I was hoping it would still be possible. It doesn't really make sense why they don't want people tracking it since you can figure it out based on where they're having their next event.
