Is it possible that Flight Trackers can spot every plane in the sky, including chemtrail and military planes, or are they unreliable?
In the past, you may have read something like this:
“I’m sure you already see where this is going. It is theoretically possible to identify every commercial plane you see overhead either by pointing your iPhone camera at it or locating it on the screen of your computer. If the debunkers are correct, we will find that planes spewing trails from horizon-to-horizon all will be identified as commercial craft, and what we see are merely normal contrails after all. On the other hand, if we find that commercial craft do not leave streaks from horizon to horizon but the ones that do are missing from the system … well, even the most die-hard skeptic would have to take a serious look at that.”
At first glance, it appears to be a good idea, but were you aware that any chemtrails debunker will not hesitate to suggest for us to track a plane with a flight tracker service? That got me thinking. Most likely it s because Flight tracker is not a 100% reliable source for tracking all planes. You see, FLIGHT TRACKER depends on aviation reports, and if the , let’s say pilot of a chemtrail plane wishes to remain invisible on a tracker, they simply do not report the flight.
“Flightradar24 would not exist if it weren’t for our data feeders. As a thank you, they all get access to a premium version of Flightradar24.com. We are also very grateful to the volunteers that update the airplane and route databases every day.”
“Flightradar24 shows live air traffic from around the world. The primary technology we use to receive flight information is called automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B).
In addition to ADS-B data, we also get data from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States. This data is based on radar data and includes all commercial air traffic in US and Canadian air space (i.e. not just planes with ADS-B transponders). Unlike the ADS-B data that is presented real-time, the FAA data is delayed by roughly 5 minutes due to FAA regulations. On the Flightradar24 map, all planes based on FAA data are orange.
Pay special attention to the following statement:
Common aircraft models that do not have an ADS-B transponder and are NOT visible on Flightradar24 :

There are also some older A300, A310, A320, B737, B747, B757, B767 aircraft flying without and ADS-B transponder, which make those aircraft invisible on Flightradar24.
Flightradar24 relies on volunteers around the world for the majority of our coverage. Find out how you can contribute.”
“Why can’t I see every plane?
By way of explanation we pick up ADS-B data transmitted by aircraft and received by ground base stations. Aircraft must be equipped with suitable transmission equipment for them to be detected by our receivers. Currently not all aircraft are equipped – Europe is currently well ahead of the US. Across the world countries are making ADS-B mandatory for most aircraft over the coming years so this will get better and better too.
Why can’t I see planes in my area?
We operate a growing network of our own equipment supported by data sharers across the globe. However we don’t yet have data for all locations. We are actively adding ADS-B feeds as fast as we can but please let us know if your area is missing and we’ll do our best to help. If you can share data, know of any data ADS-B data sources or would be interested in hosting equipment for us then please let us know.”
“Why do some aircraft appear with a BLOCKED tail number?
A BLOCKED tail number is an aircraft where the owner/operator has requested to have their tail number removed from display on flight tracking tools via the NBAA’s BARR (Blocked Aircraft Registration Request) program. To have your tail number BLOCKED, go to http://www.nbaa.org/@@wACoAAPQOwEA/asdi/.
Why can’t I track VFR flight, military flights, and certain non-US registered GA flights?
The FAA filters out military, non-US registered, and sensitive traffic. Other than that, you can track any IFR, VFR (with flight following requested), and Canadian registry GA flights.”
“Why don’t all flight trackers provide the same information?
To be useful to travellers and family members, flight trackers often have to fill in some of the gaps in the data from government sources, gate times, for example. There are other variables to consider. There is typically, but not always, a message sent to an air traffic control centre on departure. In the cases where that message is not sent, a flight tracker needs to make a best guess about the actual departure time. The same goes for arrival times. The methods that the various flight trackers use to guess vary – causing discrepancies in information provided by different flight tracker tools.”
A good explanation of how ADS-B work:
In conclusion, due to the inaccuracy of the flight tracker ,the observer of a chemtrail plane simply cannot trust the program, so keep taking those photos, keep sending them in, and please remember to date stamp your photos. Until we come up with a more trustworthy aviation tracker, it’s back to the drawing board for most of us!
