Is that this site? It's the one I follow.



I have used that one, but find that 'Plane finder' is clearer. The one you follow actually has its own forum.

I collect and run a web site on antique beer steins. So that means I get two anoraks.
Three, if I can empty 1% of them

Oops, for a second there, I thought that read beer stains. Sorry. I should imagine they would take up quite a bit of room?

If you click on any plane icon, a side window opens with all its info...id, flight route, etc, etc.

"Yours" looks good too...I'll have to do a comparison...the forum side of R24 doesn't interest me.

My iMac version is a paid for app. Costing very little. It is well worth it.

Also since my wife passed away 5 years ago.I have developed quite an interest in cooking. Nothing too ambitious. Mainly soups, stews and casseroles. All the comfort food stuff. I've also dabbled in bread making.

Yes, that I particularly like. Sadly, the information available in 'Plane Finder' (at least, the free version on iPhone) isn't anywhere near as extensive. I sometimes sit of an evening in a location which, in addition to having a lovely view, is also under the final glidepath for my local airport. I enjoy watching the planes coming in overhead, and for some reason it would appeal to me to know where their journeys began.

True. I use the iPhone version for emergencies only. The iPad one will give me its registration or flight number, depending on my choice. And with a single tap of a plane, will also give me departure and destination airports as well as altitude and compass bearing.
The iMac version gives all that as standard without clicking, plus the airlines logo. I also use a radio scanner tuned to the airline frequencies, so I can listen to them talking as well.
My picture shows, on the right, aircraft on the Lambourne beacon in Essex entering a holding pattern whilst reducing height, awaiting their turn to approach London Heathrow airport. They then fly all the way over to Watford, or there abouts. then come back to my house (the blue dot) then they line up to land at Heathrow.

Here is British Airways Boeing 777 G-YMMR on its way from London Heathrow to Denver Colorado flying at 35.000ft over my daughters house in Scotland, just a few moments ago.

Music - guitar, piano / keyboard.
Some painting, quite mixed really - here's one example from some years back:

digital 3d stuff, although of late I've given up on this as the PC is not up to it Sad
oh, and recently got interested in model trains:

Ah! Now there's a right can of worms. The number of times i've tried to get a model railway up and running and failed due to one reason or another. Usually the root cause is overambitiousness!

Can't help there, I'm afraid! I just put track down and run them when I feel like it - usually on the dining-room table (used to do that as a child) or in the garden. I'm not keen on fixed layouts for lots of reasons....
(the more people try to make them look real the more inconsistencies stand out - well, in my opinion anyway,
they always seem to be dusty,
I'd have to decide what layout I wanted,
the layout would probably end up being inconveniently placed,
it would require work......
etc.)
