This is a Southwest flight from KHOU to KPHX that is still in the air as of this writing. Since I’m pretty sure my wife and child’s plane didn’t crash, then revive itself, overshoot the destination airport by two states, and then return to its route on time, all in the course of about 20 minutes, I have to assume that the ADS-B data that interrupted and was logged is incorrect. My question is, why would FA default to some random ADS-B data instead of sticking with the actual waypoint data, or alternatively, at least default to FA Approximate?
P.S. The flight just landed, so I am now less stressed, but still curious!
