How do you verify "flight arrived"?


#1

You list N171MA as having arrived 3 days ago–in reality it crashed in Florida on Friday Aug 25 killing the occupants. How do you list it as having “arrived”?


#2

Read the FAQs. Flightaware mirrors what the FAA is reporting.


#3

The FAA doesn’t provide any special messages to indicate that an aircraft has crashed. Flights end with either an arrival or cancellation message; FlightAware will mark a flight as arrived when either message is recieved.
