Foxtrotcharlie - A journey to ADS-B tracking with Raspberry Pi

Live ADS-B tracking data by FoxtrotCharlie

Latest Mode-S and ADS-B aircraft picked up from my location in Hong Kong and other sites.

ADS-B tracking data from trackers in Hong Kong, Briancon and mobile tracker over the world when I am travelling: United States (New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Kansas City, Seattle, Miami), Spain (Barcelona), France (Paris, Chalon sur Saone, Rennes, Lyon, Briancon), Germany (Berlin), Luxembourg, Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto), China (Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Beijing, Wuhan, Shanghai)…

Shows ModeS codes, tail numbers, types of aircraft, registered owners and when my trackers detected them first and last.

Radar and maps

Trajectory of aircraft as seen by my trackers – All aircraft do not have positions as they are not reporting it and MLAT position may not be available.
Worldwide airports (15.000 airports around the world, including Air Force bases and Naval stations – and also Santa Claus own air base!)
All the routes in my database (150.000 routes from 32.500 airlines worldwide)

New aircraft

New aircraft detected by my trackers. Aircraft that are seen for the first time by one of my tracker. I also have many unknown ModeS hex codes for which I don’t find any data in available databases.

Special aircraft

Military and other special aircraft detected by my trackers. Quite a lot of “freedom of the sky” activity by USAF and US Navy in the area between Hong Kong, Taiwan and South China Sea. Also, a lot of military transport aircraft and helicopters over Briancon.

Search

Search my database of aircraft. You can search aircraft by Tail Number, Operator (owner, airline, military branch), ModeS code (ICAO hex code), Type of aircraft (manufacturer, type).

Access my database of aircraft, airports and routes through API. More than 33.000 available ModeS hex codes with associated registration (tail number), 15.000 airports with latitude/longitude and 150.000 routes.
Some interesting aircraft: Air Force One / Lockheed EP-3E Aries 2 Orion / Boeing RC-135 / Hawker Beechcraft B350

Statistiques

Statistics from my trackers. Number of aircraft per country, per manufacturer (Boeing, Airbus, Dassault, Bombardier, COMAC,…), daily stats and evolution over time.

Tweets

Tweets by FoxCharlie – my twitter bot with some manual retweets. Tweeting for new aircraft and when interesting aircraft are detected (military, helicopters, rare manufacturers, exotic countries).
