Watch live Airplane traffic from different parts around the World !

Introduction to Flightradar24

How Flightradar24 works?
Flightradar24 shows live airplane traffic from different parts around the world. The technique to receive flight information from aircraft is called ADS-B. That means the Flightradar24 can only show information about aircraft equipped with an ADS-B transponder. Today about 60% (about 30% in USA and about 70% in Europe) of the passenger aircraft and only a small amount of military and private aircraft have an ADS-B transponder.
Which aircraft are visible on Flightradar24?

Common aircraft models that are visible on Flightradar24 (have an ADS-B transponder):
    All Airbus models (A300, A310, A318, A319, A320, A321, A330, A340, A380)
    BAe ATP BAe Avro RJ70 BAe Avro RJ85 BAe Avro RJ10  Boeing 737  Boeing 747
    Boeing 757 Boeing 767 Boeing 777 Boeing 787
    Most new deliveries of Embraer E190
    Fokker 70 Fokker 100
    Gulfstream V Gulfstream G500/G550
    McDonnell Douglas MD-10 McDonnell Douglas MD-11
    Sukhoi SuperJet 100
    Some newer Ilyushin and Tupolev for example Il-96 and TU-204

Common aircraft models that are NOT visible on Flightradar24 (no ADS-B transponder):
    ATR-42  ATR-72
    Boeing 707  Boeing 717 Boeing 727 Boeing 737-200 Boeing 747-10  Boeing 747-200 Boeing 747SP
    All CASA models
    All Bombardier Dash models All Bombardier CRJ models
    Dornier 328
    All Embraer models (except most new deliveries of Embraer E190)
    Jetstream 32
    Fokker 50
    McDonnell Douglas DC-9 McDonnell Douglas MD-8  McDonnell Douglas MD-9x
    Saab 340 Saab 2000
    "Air Force One"
    Most older aircraft
    Most military aircraft

Of course there are lots of exceptions.
For example one Lufthansa CRJ900, one LOT ATR-72, one Wideroe Dash, some MD8X from Onur Air, some Saab 340 in Australia and several private Cessnas are visible.
There are also some older A300, A310, A320, B737, B747, B757, B767 aircraft without the ADS-B transponder, and that makes thoose aircraft invisible on Flightradar24.

Notes:
Click on an aircraft symbol to get airline and flight data about that aircraft.
The blue crosses show the location of major airports. You can zoom in to see a closeup of the airport. Note that the satellite view of the Earth is NOT a real time images, but comes from the Google database.
You can zoom out and drag the map to find other locations of interest.
