Inna middle of nowhere


#1

Dec 29, 2012 N734MJ (a Cessna 172) and N201RB ( a Cessna 210) were shown crossing the Pacific Ocean, originating from a point near Niuas Atoll ( 15°35’35.76"S 175°38’20.68"W ) inbound to the US. I am sure this was a glitch-- if not I hope they had massive tanks and record attempts sanctioned through the NAA/FAI. Photos:

Cursory examination shows a whole gaggle of wayward little planes coming out of Niuas on flights that will put them in the books alongside Amelia Earhart. Goodby little ones! Sleep deeply!

:laughing:

Garbled flight plans although most got corrected if you look at the individual tail nos.
Frontier 343 seems to be a frequent offender:

I believe this spot is where all the Bermuda Triangle victims pop out. The actual location is 20° 8’15.92"S 159°45’45.43"W between Mangari and Raratonga Atolls, Cook Islands, in the Pacific Ocean. It appears to be fed by a continuing supply of confused aircraft. I wonder why the FlightAware software chooses this point. It would be interesting to figure out the code.
