SCX8500 missing data on FlightAware.com

Why does SCX8500 MSP-GRR-STJ not appear on FlyteAware.com

I wanted to spot and photograph this flight in GRR.

Here’s data from FlyteComm.com:

I found it but on the STJ-MSP segment showed up.

When I went to the STJ page and looked at the past arrivals, the SCX8500 flight listed showing an origin of GRR yielded the STJ-MSP and not GRR-STJ segment.

Ditto when I went to GRR departures: Clicking SCX8500 actually brought up the STJ-MSP segment rather than the expected GRR-STJ segment.

Finally, looking at GRR arrivals, I once again found SCX8500. It originated in MSP but clicking on the flight once again brought up the STJ-MSP segment.

That’s really weird. We’ll look in to it.

Fixed and flights all appear now on the page for SCX8500.
