Bug: Flights Terminated/Arrived Early (STill in Flight)


Two Alaska Airlines Flights were shown as arriving, and then continued to plot on the map (minus the aircraft decal). Both ended at 1 hour 15 minutes.

This one just ended the plot early.


We’ve seen this with some other areas (notably Hawaii) where an arrival message is generated when the aircraft is handed off to local approach. We’re working on some intelligence to make sure the arrival message is “real” (i.e. the aircraft is near it’s final destination), but we haven’t put it into production yet.
