Probably been posted before, but got this link from the Java website. Pretty cool!

http://www.java.com/en/everywhere/airportmonitor.jsp

Click on any aircraft for type and altitude, not flight number though. Blue one's are on approach, like sheep following one another!

Any similar links?

The title of your post is quite misleading......as that link is not to a live RADAR feed, it is delayed. The only place you will get a live RADAR feed is at the RADAR scope on an air traffic facility.

Good site for information but certainly not live.

I have the Boca Raton (Passur) site active on my computer and it is fairly close to real time but information is limited. If you reset the clock back by one hour and one minute you can see the airline, flight number, equipment, altitude, and origin and destination.

..and it's not true RADAR (although one could probably argue it is)  

The data is from multiple PASSUR transponder receivers, and aircraft positions are calculated by multilateration/triangulation.

It will work anywhere the authorities will let it. Unfortunately the European authorities are somewhat stricter than the USA when it comes to flight data (remarkably!). It's the same with the data feeds for web flight trackers. The data is available in Europe, the same as it is in the USA...except for stricter rules on who can access it.

Actually that's one product that's better in the UK than the USA...due to most aircraft in Europe being ADS-B equipped, and few in the USA.

here is a link if you want one in USA:

The delay is minimal and you can quickly adjusted to "live". I work near BOS and have this on my computer and I use it all the time. I have to agree, that it's not a radar feed.

Excellent. I'll try that here for BOS to see if it works.

SBS-1 works brilliantly and is constantly under development with free downloadable upgrades.

Had mine almost a year and wouldn't be without it.

But personally, FlightAware seems to be the best overall "Flight tracking" or "Radar viewing" type website around.



Maybe A.net should create one???

It is delayed at least 20 minutes so the airplane you see on short final has most likely already got to the gate.

ATCT is right, flightaware is the best from what I've seen other than being the 1 responsible for the outstanding sequence to the runway!  Smile

There are actually a few European sites that broadcast pictures from their ADB-S receivers.

Netherlands. Requires a "donation" to get access. Also need to install a extra program to view.

East Norway. Free, but requires the same program as the Dutch one.

Denmark. Free. No extra program needed, but only updates the picture every 60 sec.

Irrelevant really, I can have a RADAR feed, received by LASER, when I'm AWOL. Word or no word.

To summarize:
The closest you'll get to a real RADAR feed is the SBS-1 unit, which reads real-time ADS-B transmissions. Great in Europe, but less useful in the USA where a smaller percentage of aircraft are ADS-B equipped.
Websites such as FlightAware, Red1, FBOWeb, FlightExplorer all use the same FAA data feed, which actually does originate from individual FAA RADAR facilities. In almost all cases this must be delayed by a minimum of 10 minutes.
PASSUR uses it's own transponder receivers positioned around an airport/city, and calculates aircraft position from multilateration and triangulation.
