Delay in flight data

Hi,

When a plane goes overhead the first and second questions I usually ask are "where are they going" or "where did they come from."  I'm trying to automate that with this:

I'm trying to use https://myser:mypassword@opensky-network.org/api/flights/aircraft?icao24=A44988&begin=1626347100&end=1626469646 

using end=NOW and begin=(now - 5 minutes) but I get no response.  Playing with the dates, it seems like I can only get this data from yesterday, not flights in the air right now.  Is that right?

Yes, that's right. There's no way to find out purely with ADS-B data where a live plane is going. Hence, we do it as a batch job at night. See the FAQ: opensky-network.org/about/faq#q14
