Tracking A Specific Aircraft?

Thu Apr 30, 2009 8:41 pm

Maybe some of our Australian members might be able to help with this; a friend of mine was asking how it might be possible to track this particular aircraft, a Heavy Lift Belfast (or, more specifically, THE Heavy Lift Belfast!):

Is there some online software/programme/site that could help with this?

I expect it could only be picked up with ACARS or SBS showing where it was, but given that where it flies there are few, if any people with ACARS or SBS scanners, or it's over the ocean, and the aircraft may not even be equipped with these, it's probably not going to be found.

Other than annoying Heavylift by phoning them to find out where it was, I doubt there's any other way of tracking it.
