I knew they would be, I use it with my SBS 1-ER and airframes.org site to look up the ones to update. I watch the SBS 1-ER on a 32ins monitor then I am not squinting at the laptop all the time. I am at the AVP Manchester tomorrow for the A380 first flight so I hope I can get a good shot or two.

http://www.planefinder.net/ seems a bit more reliable, although not quite as nice UI
Good luck with the 380 today....common as muck down here

Have been looking at that site for a while Chris, very informative during the "Ash Cloud" period.
Cheers Pat.

I watched Bernie Ecclestone's aircraft fly into Biggin Hill and then leave on the way to the Grand Prix. It was the only aircraft flying at the time (during the volcanic ash event).

I like Flightradar24.com, great site as you can track what you want on it. I tracked my daughter on a flight to Majorca and back
