Problem with Flight origin/destination


#1

We are using FlightXML (…/FlightXML2/FlightInfoEx) to flight data. Some flights return origin or destination as GPS coordinates instead of airport ICAO/IATA (an example is shown below). Is this data error on FlightAware? Thank you for clarifying this issue.

This is the result of a position-only flight. You would have turned this on in the account settings. It would appear that we did not receive a flight plan for this flight, so the first position would be the origin.
