NH1 17Feb11


#1

Is there any way to find out why NH1 made such a big diversion to the south off of their listed flight plan on 17 Feb 11? Is it possible that the solar flare that has been effecting radio’s communication in the far reaches of the northern hemisphere is the cause?

Most likely 2 errant positions out of Edmonton Center.

14:13 48.00 -95.23 323 Northwest 480 552 32,000 level Edmonton Center CCZE
14:14 48.12 -95.37 332 Northwest 480 552 32,000 level Edmonton Center CCZE

Look pretty suspicious in sequence.

Ah, thanks. Had 2 very close friends on the flight trying to make connections at NRT to SGN yesterday due to the death of a family member, and when I saw the diversion, got concerned about them making their connection.
