FR24/Flightaware Issues?

Sun Sep 27, 2020 7:39 pm

I was trying look up a flight that passed overhead my home, and kept getting timeout errors when trying to pull up both FR24 and Flightaware. Anyone else having issues?
Great Lakes, great life.

Yep, I'm having issues on both. They're down.

Edit: As of 2:57pm CST, FR24 is working for me again.

FR24 was down and Flightaware appears to still be down. Oddly, no statement from Flightaware acknowledging issue(s).

Just for future reference — we don't consider flight tracking apps to be related to Civil Aviation, so please post these topics in Non Aviation. We realize it's a bit confusing, but since the issues are usually related to software glitches, we don't feel they're aviation related.

FR24 down for me now, with a 522 after a DDoS check running. Targeted DDoS attack?

From what I can make from the FR24 twitter feed, it seems like a DDoS attack. All services down as of 30mins ago.

Just tried FR24.

The map comes up OK.

When I select on an individual aircraft, things are still OK.

When I select on an airport it won’t load.

Strangely most aircraft outside of America and Europe are showing up Blue rather than Yellow.

Airports aren't loading for me, and flight data seems to only be the last 30 mins or so. I'm looking at Australia and most aircraft are yellow, but much data is missing. Hard to know whether it's just a mid afternoon lull, but half the aicraft currently above my city are gliders...

And, as quickly as it was back it's all gone again with FR24....Flightaware is currently OK

Still having issues, they put out on Twitter they are under attack, currently getting 520 error message on site.
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!
