DC9 (and DC8) flight map bug?


#1

flightaware.com/live/aircrafttype/DC9

It knows it’s a DC-9-10, and it plots on the map DC93, DC95, etc, but nothing is shown in the table.

However, if you go to
flightaware.com/live/aircrafttype/DC95
or
flightaware.com/live/aircrafttype/DC93
the map and table both populate.

Adding an asterisk to the end of the code (DC9*) will bring up all of the DC9’s.

It appears that the map defaults to all of a type of aircraft (e.g. when I entered DC* the map showed a DC87 but the table indicated no DC8’s were currently enroute. When I entered DC8*, the DC87 showed up.

Further research seems to indicate that all 3 letter codes that are part of a 4 letter code (e.g. PA3, DC8, DC) then all of the possibly 4 letter codes show up on the map when you enter the first 3 letters (e.g. PA31, PA32, DC87).

Also, when I entered “DC” and “B7” for aircraft type, all aircraft beginning with those codes (DC87, DC93, B737, etc) showed up on the map but nothing showed up on the chart.
