one of my planes is airborne with no flight plan.


#1

I track N908JB and it’s last flight 1/15 from KJWN to KEYW suddenly has an extension in the map heading back into his home port KPBI (I would imagine from the looks of the radar track). Is this a glitch or could they have flown VFR in the falcon? :question:


#2

You can see the final VFR segment at 17500ft in the tracklog (the last dozen rows or so after the descent into EYW).


#3

Thanks for the quick response Mark. I’ll make sure to check the track logs first from now on when I spot one of these “glitches”.


#4

Wow, talk about quick cancellatiojn of IFR descending out of Class A airspace :smiley:


#5

It was actually two flights, seperated by a bit of time on the ground.

Descent into Key West:


03:51PM  	2616N/8217W  	542  	39000
03:54PM 	2551N/8209W 	528 	34300 descending
03:55PM 	2542N/8207W 	538 	29500 descending
03:56PM 	2533N/8204W 	550 	25400 descending
03:57PM 	2525N/8202W 	531 	21300 descending
03:58PM 	2517N/8200W 	519 	18000 descending
03:59PM 	2509N/8158W 	505 	14600 descending
04:00PM 	2502N/8156W 	473 	11000 descending
04:02PM 	2451N/8153W 	364 	8300 descending
04:03PM 	2446N/8152W 	317 	5600 descending
04:04PM 	2442N/8151W 	294 	3400 descending
04:05PM 	2437N/8151W 	283 	2100 descending
04:06PM 	2433N/8150W 	263 	1600 descending
04:07PM 	2433N/8148W 	151 	700 descending

And then after about 20 minutes on the ground, they took off VFR from Key West and picked up flight following after climbing to 17500 feet:


04:42PM  	2534N/8056W  	453  	17500 climbing
04:44PM 	2543N/8048W 	454 	17400 descending
04:45PM 	2548N/8043W 	450 	17500 climbing
04:46PM 	2555N/8040W 	444 	17400 descending
04:47PM 	2602N/8036W 	439 	15900 descending
04:48PM 	2608N/8032W 	418 	13800 descending
04:49PM 	2618N/8026W 	338 	10000 descending
04:53PM 	2635N/8016W 	258 	2500 descending
04:57PM 	2641N/8009W 	129 	600 descending
