Both still there, at the same altitudes. No movement.
Yup. I check every day on way home. Assume it's tethered to a ship or buoy ?
Or completely spurious. How likely is it that a balloon tethered to 12 miles of cable isn't going to drift about a bit as the wind direction changes ?
It's a consistent return with all data fields too.
Accuracy of our app won't show variation of few feet bobbing up and down based on refresh rate
There are enough decimal places quoted in those screenshots to cope with the accuracy that airborne positions are sent with, which equates to a resolution of about 15 feet laterally. The altitude has a resolution of 25 feet, and I assume that doesn't vary either? Hmmm.
Depending on which one you are looking at(both don't always register), there's a 1,000 foot altitude difference. BIL7777 has also had a 500 foot elevation change.
BIL7777 "departed" the north Irish coast at 62,000 feet.
Here's me in a Martin Baker ejection seat, c.1960. I think it may not have been designed to fire blokes my size...
Why'd you render it live?
Chances are it's a Zero-Zero seat designed to be fired underwater. Fitted to many navy aircraft, Blackburn Buccaneer included.
PS, I'm not an utter chrome dome. That's a number zero hair cut.
You are Gentle Giant AICMFP.
Been back up to Lydd to have a good look at my Dad's plane now it's out of the workshop.
Not at all easy for someone my size with a wonky shoulder to get into.
Yes. Intending to build an ADS-B receiver for the system too. If it works and they're happy with the data, you get the full $500/year subscription free as long as your receiver is online.
Victors have a wonderful, slightly evil look about them...
