Interesting reading on how FR24 takes the ADS-B data and display's it on their website map.

Analyzing Flightradar24's API structure.

Airlines & Airports
Then, the app then proceeds to get a list of the airports and airlines. It does so by using the following two URLs:
http://www.flightradar24.com/_json/airports.php
http://www.flightradar24.com/_json/airlines.php

Zones
To prevent longer loading times, the application does not load all the aircraft data all at once. It only gets the necessary information that it needs for a user's location. Therefore, the earth is divided into zones. The app gets all the zones from this URL:
http://www.flightradar24.com/js/zones.js.php

Aircraft data
( “na_ne” zone, which stands for “north america, north east”.)
http://krk.fr24.com/zones/na_ne_all.json

It is possible to get more information for a specific aircraft using this API:
http://krk.fr24.com/_external/planedata_json.1.3.php?f=3845436
