I wasn't sure where to post this so I will put it here.
Here is news for all the techie people on the site. Now available on Google Android as well as the iphone is the app 'plane finder'
You can download the free app (a paid for version with more features is also available) install it and watch aircraft come and go on your mobile from Manston, or wherever you are, in real time. It sets your location and lists the registrations and call signs of passing aircraft, refreshing the screen regularly. If you zoom out you'll be able to see the Cargolux and Flybe etc aircraft arriving before they call up on radio, or you can watch them take off and track them to see their routing.
If you want to try it from a normal computer go to http://www.planefinder.net/
Happy spotting :D

Many thanks for that. I have used virtual radar and others on the PC but was unaware there were apps. Have just installed it - excellent.
