Fly bys


#1

If there was a plane such as a boeing777 fly by at an airshow would it be a flight that you could track or not? :confused: Because I have watched video clips of airliners flying by at airshows.


#2

If it is part of an airshow, I doubt it would be under an IFR flight plan, and therefore not show up here. I could be wrong though, I’m just assuming.

If you want to see the track of a fly-by, find the track of the COEX ERJ that landed at IAH with a blown tire. IIRC, it did at least one fly-by of the airport as it was circling.


#3

Yeah I bet your right it makes scense but i didn’t know if they went from the airshow to another airport to pick up people and the leg before would show up.


#4

That kind of flight might be filed IFR, but it would look just like any ordinary flight.


#5

I don’t think it would track like any other flight wouldn’t it circle until it is time for the fly by?


#6

Depends if it lands at the airport first.


#7

Why would it depend on that i’m not familiar with that kind of information.


#8

Well, if the plane landed, it would end that flight, and “cancel” that flight plan. That wouldn’t happen if it stayed in the air circling, however it might cancel for other reasons.
