Strange Iceland Air track?


#1

track
Noticed this in the pattern over the Seattle area today. Any ideas why it would do this loop?


#2

I’d guess sightseeing or post-mx checkout.

I believe they have the blended winglets installed at Kelowna. Probably a test flight. Might as well circle the factory where there are a few less mountains and lots of runways to divert.

Conspiracy theory: it’s not really Icelandair, it’s another C-32A. 8)

I try to keep a site of mine up to date with this kind of stuff as I see it:

I’m really the only person who uses it though there are apparently lurkers, but I figure someday it might pick up steam.

This flight, as far as I can tell, didn’t dip below FL11000 so I didn’ t make a note of it there, I usually just make note of stuff actually landing at KSEA/KBFI/KPAE of interest.

Your site is too wide.

thanks for the tip. I’ve tweaked to render properly for a 1024 pixel wide display

Hey James, maybe your monitor is too narrow. This could be your chance to sell the wife on that 60" Plasma TV/monitor!
