On today’s flight flightaware.com/live/flight/N1943L to MCB, I was flying under non radar, where the ATC could not see my transponder. Center asked me to Ident, and lost my little blib I guess. I was prepared for this as my flight down, I had to maintain victor airways rather then as filed direct due to the radar outage.
The radar outage was for about 40 miles from just north of the MCB VOR. I flew from KMCB to MCB via V9 to JAN direct to MBO
I kinda expected to see a gap on my tracking but does not look like it happened. How was flight aware able to track me but Houston Center was not?
I didn’t see any discernable gaps in the tracklog either.
BTW - we pilots are truly priviledged to do what we do. Amazing how we cruise along at 120 knots, nothing to see inside a cloud, clouds so thick that I couldn’t even see the wing tips, and really trusting our instruments to get us there.
