Sometimes a track log returns the whole flight, sometimes just the first 12 datapoints. Why? I tried flightaware.com/live/flight/N70U … I/tracklog shows just 12 minutes of the flight, sometimes it shows the whole thing.
I noticed too that the HTML that returns sometimes has an extra character in it – if I specify the wrong time, for instance, the page has a link to click on that says “Flight > N70U > 06Nov2007 > KWVI-KSNS” but the URL that link points to is flightaware.com/live/flight/N70U … I/tracklog (note the extra Z)
I suspect this is a bug in handling a flight that files a new flightplan enroute, which is what happened here. The plan was SNS-WVI but after flying to and beyond WVI they filed back to SNS which was below VFR. I wanted to see the whole route, which I can sometimes but not consistently.
Is there documentation for the options available in this simple public API, or is that only available for FlightXML?
