Does FA scrub records?


I read:

“That record has been removed from the FlightAware website. A screen capture is attached to this story.”

here: … bound.html.

I just checked FA and the data is not there. Why does FA scrub data? Under what conditions do you do this and why?


Unflown flight plans are automatically removed 2 hours after the proposed departure time. Otherwise they just become clutter.


You mean nothing nefarious is going on… :wink: Well that makes perfect sense. Thank you for the quick reply.
