I suggest you try to recover internally before throwing the error. As you can see from my log file, I did not manage to crash your whole back-end…

Can you provide more specifics of what requests you were making? Those VLG responses are not the literal format returned by our servers, so there’s apparently more being done by your application and that isn’t a literal response from our server.

Your application should check the HTTP response code of all requests and treat responses that are not 200 (Success) with a reasonable error handler, possibly retrying later if needed.

If you are using FlightXML3, be aware that there are request rate limits that you may potentially be exceeding, in which case you will receive a server error.
