OpenADSB Pros

Love this app over ADS-B exchangeI’m a military buff/photographer only w/a very rare civilian airline shots. This app is so easy to filter to military and find it a cleaner image on the screen. My only wish would be an addition to filter out certain aircraft like the BE-20 which fill the list often. I recommend this app to all my military photogs..TopGun_photogVersion: 1.6.10
