If itís twin engined and usually flies reasonably high and is battleship grey itís most likely the plane from the PSNI Air Support Unit.

Try the smart phone app "mi Flight Radar lite"

The best is probably "Planes Live - Flight Radar". You will get 3 days free, but then you have to pay for it.

Iíve just had a look on a couple of flight tracking apps I have on my iPad but nothing is showing up , some small older aircraft donít have transponders which would explain why itís not showing, if itís flying a grid itís possibly ordnance or marine survey .
