    Does anyone know of a good flight tracker? Preferably free – I will probably only ue it once or thrice. Preferably superimposed on a ground map.

    A couple of years ago when I wanted one, there were two or three to choose from, but now they seem not to be there any more

    Its easy when you know how

    EasyJet use flighradar (JCD link) on their app.

    Thanks JCD, I’ve downloaded that.

    If it’s the Psychic Network why do they need a phone number?

    Thanks Folk.

    IIRC it was Flight Radar I used a couple of years back, but then it really was “live” and you could track the planes into LHR (or anywhere else for that matter) but now it is “dead” – no movement at all. To simulate movement you have to keep restarting the flight – unless I am missing something.

    Flight Radar works just fine here, both the Android app and the website.

    Same here. I can watch planes going down the runway if I zoom in.

    Certain planes do not appear in real time e.g. El Al  etc.

    If you have an iPhone or iPad get the flier to send a message to you with the Airline and flight number – e.g. British Airways BA1234.  Open the message and touch the details and the flight tracker will automatically open.

    A Ha. They are moving again, even if they are all overshooting the runway!  Still better than nothing. Using Flightradar24
