New aircraft on-ground system released

Bristol Airport Spotting have developed and recently released a new exciting feature on the website known as “Aircraft On-Ground”. This feature displays a list of aircraft that are currently being reported as on the ground, the information displayed includes the airline, aircraft type, registration, airline logo and a thumbnail of the aircraft. The data is being supplied to us by a third party who’s data is very accurate but at times can misreport aircraft on the ground, this new feature can therefore only be used as a guide.

To view the aircraft currently on the ground navigate to our website and hover over the “Spotters Tools” menu heading and then click on “Aircraft On-Ground”, the information will then be displayed. Alternatively please click the following link –

The on-ground system is powered by a Raspberry Pi mini computer:
