Planes in wrong locations


#1

Is it normal that a plane, which is supposed to be heading for say Minneapolis and landing there soon to be seen as way overshooting MSP and a screen refresh sometimes corrects its location so the plane is properly seen as approaching MSP instead of having already overshot it by 50-100 miles? And this goes for the other planes on the screen too (in wrong locations).
I am using an older browser version and a free account.
I just learned of FlightAware and it is quite interesting! Being able to click on the planes and learn about their types (turboprop and so forth) is really fun.
Thanks.
