Can someone please help me identify the labels associated with the below JSON?

The data comes from FlightRadar24


I get that 51.3056 & 6.4601 are the latitude and longitude. I also get that 43000 is the altitude and 1486231556 is a timestamp, but I do not know what the others should be...

For example, LHR I guess is London Heathrow, but is what is the official term?

I'd like official terms to match the JSON.

I want to do some data visualizations with the aircraft data.

    $\begingroup$ It might help if you edit your question to indicate where the JSON comes from an it's purpose. $\endgroup$ – Simon Feb 4 '17 at 18:34

    $\begingroup$ FR24 explicitly does not have a published API, and they probably won't take too kindly to someone using their internal API (which they should secure.... ). $\endgroup$ – abelenky Feb 4 '17 at 19:15

  • $\begingroup$ I don't know enough about aviation to edit but I googled the first string and found this page: avdelphi.com/flight.html?callsign=QTR015. So it looks like Airframe? The data on that page lines up with the data here. $\endgroup$ – Kodos Johnson Feb 5 '17 at 0:37
