Thats actually pretty much the answer I was expecting. A 6 minute delay does as much for security as a TFR or ADIZ does. You just gotta love our taxes at work. Sometimes they do something great, like make the feed available in the first place, but then a bureaucrat shows their stupidity by thinking it should be delayed by 6 minutes, as if they think a terrorist can only plan 5 minutes into the future. But let’s not get off on that tangent!
If it will ever do any good I will be happy to help lobby to remove the delay. But then, it isn’t really that big of a thing so I’m sure it’s not the top priority around there. They whole system works really great in spite of the raw data having to come from the government!
Interesting bit of information, though. Thanks!
