I thought I’d share my personal best in distance today. I tracked this plane from its origin at KSPG to within 300 feet of touch down at KHCS
I first noticed it outside the 250NM ring. It was at 11000 ft, in and of itself amazing at that distance. I tracked the flight to 300 ft obviously just moments from touchdown.
As the DUMP1090-MUTABILITY web page shows, the last location information shows 295.4 NM which was updated 9.5 minutes before I lost the fight at 14:38 EDT.
The Flightaware.com track shows it landing at 14:40 EDT.
Some extremely strange atmospheric conditions must have existed to track a flight at that low of an altitude 295 NM from my 29 ft above-ground-level antenna (which is 62 feet above sea level.)
Every aircraft needs this radio!
Where do I pick up my prize?
Edited text to show FT rather than FL, Thanks all
