Status Vs. Track Map


I am following my FIL & his best friend as they fly to the “Tiki Hut” in N86RL. The status shows airborne, but there is no track? What could cause this?

Edit…20 minutes into the flight they showed up…weird…


Looks like the departure message came in 8 minutes before we started to recieve position reports; by the time we received the first position report he was at 9500 feet.
