App Explane will work less optimal in the coming days

Due to maintenance on the OpenSky Network systems, the Explane app will not perform as well in the coming days or even weeks.

Explane uses the data from the network to determine which airliner is flying over at the time of measurement. Without access to this data, the app gives the message ‘No airplane captured’.

The day before yesterday, on September 2nd, OpenSky reported via Twitter that it is performing maintenance on their systems. This maintenance results in frequent loss of access to the data.

The outages will continue for the next few days and possibly weeks. After that, the app should work properly again.

Explane was launched in November 2018. With the app, the nuisance caused by aircraft has now been recorded internationally in more than 577,000 measurements. The half-millionth measurement was recently registered in the Netherlands.
