Charter Member with one post. You sure have been in the shadows. :wink:

What you see is the result of two aircraft with similar flights #'s airborne at the same time. FA plots the feed for both aircraft simultaneously and it shows up as the zig zag you see.

May be paired with a flight ’ like ’ this one from CYOW to CYYC.

Thanks for the info!

And I have been in the shadows, it never occurred to me to check our the forum here. I’m having lots of fun going through all these flights!
