I find it curious that they don't show military aircraft...
I've noticed in my occasional look sees today that some of the aircraft i.d.'s show up as "blocked".
Walt, there's a thing called BARR: "Block Aircraft Registration Request". It basically puts a three-day hold on that flight's data being public record--you can see it moving, but you can't get the numbers or who's on it until three days after landing.
Well, that's something I didn't know.

That's one of the reasons I hang out here.
Here's an iPhone app that will let you point the phone at at aircraft in the sky overhead and then return the identification info.
