What is the meaning of the different symbols in the fly radar of Flightradar24?
Flightradar24 kept the symbols really straightforward. The yellow symbols are all the aircraft and the blue markers are the airports. You can however distinguish the sizes of the aircraft by the size of the symbol. Also, different types of aircraft are differently shaped. Also, not all the airports are shown with blue markers, only the airports with regular and scheduled passenger flights are shown on the map. This is because the vast amounts of airports there are in the world and the entire flight radar would be covered with blue markers.

The History of Flightradar24
Flightradar24 started in Sweden, as a hobby project by 2 aviation geeks in 2006. They started to place ADS-B receivers in Central- and Northern Europe. Then after a few years in 2009 people could upload their data from their own receiver onto the flightradar24 service. The number of people joining the network is growing day by day and as a result so does the coverage of the network. Today, most parts of the world are covered by the transponders!
