Real-world flight tracking or maps (UK)

I know there's a US version of real-time trackers (https://flyawaysimulation.com/article978.html) - is there a UK version?

Where I work, right on the western tip of Cumbria, I look south-east have have a great view of loads of air traffic, the majority flying more-or-less south and occasionally some going North-West. I can clearly see a junction where the paths of air traffic meet and cross and I'm trying to find out where it is. Are there any maps of the UK corridors this traffic is using?

Hmm... also it would be cool to get my scanner out - I wonder which ATC centres & frequencies they'll come under too....

Cumbria being this (link) area?

Is the traffic you mention in or outbound to/from a specific airport?

Perhaps the airways the traffic is following are these:
N864
UL603
UL46
UL603

ATC Frequencies for this area are:

  • Carlisle Approach - 123.600
  • Carlisle Tower - 123.600
  • Isle of Man / Sandown Tower - 123.500
  • Manchester Control - 126.775
  • Blackpool Approach - 119.950
  • Blackpool Tower - 119.950
  • Warton Approach - 124.450
  • Warton Tower - 130.800

FANTASTIC - thanks - and frequencies! Smile
Yep thats the area. I'm sitting just south of the tip (link to where I am is here; http://tinyurl.com/yrg4ss)

I can see them flying south from DCS (which is just off the road at Moota) and I can also see them crossing that point where it intersects from Blackpool to the Isle of Man. That point is 40 miles from me Shocked

I'll bring the scanner in to work & have a listen.
