Corrupt data for ICAO- 503C2B


#1

On doing a FlightInfoEx call with these parameters - ‘http://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML2/FlightInfoEx?ident=0x503C2B&howMany=1

This is the output I get -

“FlightInfoExResult”: {
“flights”: [
{
“actualarrivaltime”: 1508086749,
“actualdeparturetime”: 1508085168,

“originCity”: “Moscow”,
“originName”: “Moscow”,
“route”: “”
}
],
“next_offset”: 1
}

This is probably some bad data in the DB. Just wanted to point it out.

That is a lat/lon origin where the origin is derived from an in-flight position rather than a flightplan, and we don’t have a plausible nearby airport to use. (The equivalent on the website is “near [location name]”)
