Hi all

This has probably been asked 1000 times already so i apologize in advance.
What is the best site for tracking? I have looked at ADSB exchange and unless i am not doing it right i can only see on a map where the aircraft is at that time but cant zoom in or see what way it is going.
Is there a site that shows more details on a map? What is 360rader like ?

Thanks in advance guys

Hi Paul

My go to tracking site is 360Radar, its got plenty of layers you can turn on i.e. weather, Airfields, NOTAMS, etc.
I use it in conjunction with ADSB Exchange, as sometimes aircraft show up on one but not the other, as for the trouble your having,
turn the military filter on, and select to have trails show on all aircraft, also to reduce clutter I have the map set to Contrast.

Hope this helps as a starting point

Apologies for jumping on this thread but a similar question.

I've got ADSB exchange open, centred on my location, the filter is set to military and is showing a number of aircraft dotted around however;

In the last 15-20 minutes or so I've had visual on a Voyager and a Herc heading into Brize but both of these haven't appeared on ADSB, in fact most stuff I can see out the window doesn't appear. What's the reason for this? :S

As an aside and as a newbie to this forum, although being ex-military I'm used to TLA's there's an awful lot of jargon / abbreviations and acronyms on this website, is there a glossary of terms to help out a newbie like me? :unsure:
