    Are modern military aircraft except from showing data?

    I have an app on my phone that shows me what planes are in my area (FlightRadar24) and it works great . But I was out on a walk yesterday I heard a jet fighter on manouevers above the clouds. It was very loud and distinctive and I heard it a few times. But nothing was showing on the app.

    I believe it depends on the software you are using. ?
    Engine Failure:.... A condition which occurs when all fuel tanks mysteriously become filled with air.

        Yeah, congested airspace would be very dangerous if they weren't. US and Russia accuse each other of turning off transponders.

            Good grief, a lot more detail than the app!
            Compare the two:

                You will sometimes see military aircraft on Flight Radar 24. In the UK you will sometimes see F-15s, MV-22 Osprey. Sometimes the odd Tornado GR4.

                  Seems it all depends on the plane having ADSB units on board. Many don't tho thats set to change by 2020

                  Common aircraft models that usually do not have an ADS-B transponder and are not visible on Flightradar24 (within ADS-B coverage):

                  ATR 42, 72 (except most new deliveries of ATR 72-600)
                  Boeing 707, 717, 727, 737-200, 747-100, 747-200, 747SP
                  BAe Jetstream 31 and 32
                  All Bombardier CRJ models (except most new deliveries of CRJ-900)
                  All Bombardier Dash models
                  All CASA models
                  All Dornier models
                  All Embraer models (except most new deliveries of Embraer E190)
                  De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter
                  Fokker 50
                  McDonnell Douglas DC-9, MD-8x, MD-90
                  Saab 340 and 2000
                  Most helicopters
                  Most older aircraft
                  Most business jets
