When you click on the planes, it tells you what kind of plane it is, but there are some codes for the planes that I dont know what they are, like:
Can anyone give me ideas what what planes these might be?
Also, often these things give plane types for aircraft that are certainly helicopters, judging by their activities. I doubt that was truly a 757 doing circles over Randalls Island at 800 feet for an hour.

GALX = IAI 1126 Galaxy
BE30 = Raytheon Beech 300 Super King Air
BTW Usually airliners are identified by their three digit ICAO code (for example 744 = 747-400, 100 = Fokker 100 etc.) and bizjets and props with their four digit ICAO code (GALX = IAI 1126 Galaxy, GLEX = Global express)
