Default A/C Type


#1

I uploaded a photo of tail number N589D which is a WW-I replica of a S.E. 5 British fighter, but flightaware tagged it as an invalid A/C type and inserted “C172” as a default, presumably meaning a Cessna 172, which it is not. How can I get flightaware to accept the S.E. 5 designation? :question:

The default aircraft type (if what you typed was omitted or invalid) is the aircraft type used for the last known flight for that ident. In your case, the last flight using that ident was actually a C172 in 2008: flightaware.com/live/flight/N589 … /KTUL/KSWO
