Flightradar24 issues

Is anyone else having issues with flightradar24 not showing aircraft or intermittently not loading aircraft?


Yup. For about an hour.

Yep. I always assume it’s my iOS or Flightradar24 app needs updating.
Doesn’t seem to be on my end today.
I can’t get anything really.

Adsbexchange will have decent uncensored coverage. It’s what I try to use before FR24 but coverage depends on what receivers are sending their data to.


Glad I’m not the only one!

Thought it may have been my Droid update this AM. Guess not. Thanks.

Down for everybody.

Mine is working again…


Yup! Working for me, too.

Now back to regularly scheduled programming…

When I try to look at FR24 I get a web page hosted by Cloudflare that seems to be a DDoS fronend.

This is my first post.


I think their server is down. I haven’t been able to get any data for the last several minutes.


Both FlightAware and FlightRadar24 have had issues for the last day

I think their servers are on mega overload.

ADS-B Exchange can be kind of frustrating cause it’s all different than FR24, but this is a good alternative. Seems to have continued working through all FR24 issues lately.


It is also nice for c-130 MAFFS and a couple other aircraft that don’t show up on FR24.


ADSBExchange isn’t as user friendly as FR24 but does have quite a few different aircraft as the others, for some reason, and has plenty of military movements. I never see C-5’s or KC-10’s or C-17’s on the others, and the MAFFs on there make it my go-to tracker during fires now.

Flightradar24 got attacked and it took their server offline.
