there are 2 options i know of Del

1 - 360 radar - pay a couple of quid a month

2 - donny radar - free but not as good coverage http://www.donnyradar.co.uk/live/map

if you only want to see military flights, on there, click

'menu'
'options'
'filters'
then tick the box 'enable filters' military should already be set up
then click on the 'Map' at the top left


currently there a 4 aircraft on donny over the uk showing, on 360 there are 14

Thanks Mark. I've looked at Donnyradar but want something more world wide because you mentioned Cyprus, also searched for radar360 and only get adverts for car dashboard radar warning sets so have you a link for it please. Couldn't find any menu button on Donny either.

Thanks Mark, I'll have a butchers and decide. It does look interesting though but as I have a paid up Flightradar 24 I would prefer to use this other purely for Military so is that possible? Don't know what that aerial thing is, something for the roof?

Shame that it's mainly based on paypal subscription, I was quite interested until I saw that. Really don't like paypal.

It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.?

oh i must add, it does not cover ALL military flights, many qra flights by typhoons wont be on there, however the awac and tanker sent to escort them are, and show up flashing red to say its squarking qra

the reds dont always show up as only 2 of the aircraft have squark transponders for some bzzar reason

all BBMF do, ive been watching the hurricane this morning

Ken I've used Paypal for 3 years now and it's safe and will sort out any disputes you may have with any sellers. It can be set up with money in their bank, or no money but DD from your bank or put on credit cards. I swear by it. Especially handy for those dealers who won't/don't take credit cards. Mine is set up for either CC or DD and it can be changed at point of payment.

I used to have a paypal account. Got ripped off, took a long time to get it sorted out. Cancelled the account, as I figured it wasn't worth the grief.

That's fair enough Ken, personally no bothers for me so far.
