FlightXML3 block times

I am trying to get flight information (in this case for LOG70)

But when I use the GetFleetSchedule web service I do not get the

actual_blockin_time and actual_blockout_time

am I doing something wrong?

When using the FlightXML3 FleetBoards function, you must specify include_ex_data=true if you want block times, gates, or terminals.

There is no function in FlightXML3 named GetFleetSchedule, although there is one in FlightXML2 named FleetScheduled. However, that function does not provide block times, nor actual times since “Only flights that have not actually departed, and have a scheduled departure time between 2 hours in the past and 24 hours in the future, are considered.”

thanks, working now
