For anyone who used the old G-INFO service from the CAA this is the new website for it and it displays alot more data about each aircraft.

For the curious, G-INFO lets you search all current UK registrations and it gives details such as make model and owner details. Its very up to date as they update it nightly.

Also can tell where and aircraft came from or went to and also when it was registered or de-registered

There are new result items such as "Popular Name, etc" where before it just gave the data without headers of what this was about if you know what i mean.

Also new search option on first page of "model s (hex)"

The main reason for posting was to let everyone who used it aware of new location. If your going to knit pick and say why is this useful then i wont post anything similar in the future.

Well I for one am glad you did, Andrew. It lives in my Favourites and I was planning to look for the new location later.

Amazing how some people like to give themselves airs and graces and look down on mere "spotters", isn't it? :p

Anyone would think this was Pprune..... :diablo:

The entire CAA site has been redesigned with a view to improving the layout for visually impaired users. It's more of revamp than a wholesale change in the site's content.

thta may be so, but I personaly do not view the "modifications" done to the search as worth a thread of its own. Just my opinion. Nothing more
