Holding pattern ? KSNA -see image


#1

Check the image I snapped from a double hold pattern for KSNA, does this happen due to flow control at busy west coast airports ? It was early in the AM when I tracked this flight.

I can’t answer your question, but that’s a great screen shot!

That’s a beautiful hold . . . and I have to admit I was really confused at the color scheme from a screenshot that I thought was created this morning. Now I see that the Activity Log is from January. :slight_smile:

On any given day there are more racetracks in the air than there are on the ground! :wink:

Just wait until summer is here with its attendant thunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc. if you want to see enroute holds.

Regards,

Those nice holds are courtesy of the FMC :wink:

I’m not sure about the time issue, but I’ll bet ( if this is an early morning shot) that this hold was due to weather: fog, most likely.
