Mixed up position data


#1

On a recent private aircraft flight the track display shows a mix of data from two different flights, on two different days. The track shown in green is the wrong flight/wrong day. The track shown in light blue seems to be correct.


#2

Link?


#3

Sorry, I thought this might be a known problem. Look at N9648X. The two flights shown are from Sunday evening and Monday morning.


#4

Were all the flights IFR, or was the most recent one VFR?


#5

Both flights were VFR flight following with no flight plan on file. It seems like the data they enter for these flights is a little haphazard.


#6

I will open a development ticket on this, but in general, the deal has been that VFR isn’t 100% reliable on FlightAware.
