Oh i forgot to say in the picture of the route, where it ends is not the final destination. I just happen to take then pic when it was in flight. I think the pilot was drunk

Here's another one I took, what I found odd that it took off from heathrow crossed the English Channel and circled close to 3 airports in France and then headed back to the UK to land again. If they had a fault with the plane do they not land at the closest airport or would it be a case of that it could make it back to heathrow to avoid anymore problems for example with the passengers and luggage.

It was a British airways flight to tel aviv airbus a320

Depends what sort of fault, sometimes when a plane has a fault they circle around for a while to burn fuel before landing.

Found another odd one..

This is a domestic QANTAS flight, been doing a few laps around the city.

My avnerd sources have been pretty quiet for a while now, I used to get the ACARS reports from the main cities daily, not so much anymore.

I check it out and see what I get back mate

They landed just after I took the screen shot.

I'm thinking there might have been some sort of problem with the plane, keeping an eye on local news to see if anything pops up.

Hey there currently 2:18 am here on Monday morning. Spotted a good one, haven't a clue what they are doing here. The plane is still in flight and haven't seen it go above 3100 feet. Can't find anywhere it may of took off from.

Not sure where it took off from but this is what the company does:

As well as ad hoc passenger and cargo charters, the company specialises in aerial survey and surveillance and in particular operations from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA). Work for the MCA includes surveillance and search and rescue support and providing aircraft on standby for spraying oil spills with dispersant.

Cheers stealth I'm just curious though, this was gone 2am in the morning it was pitch black and when I finally went to bed around 2:45 am it was still flying staying at around 3100 ft. I checked google earth on the location from where the route started but couldn't see any air fields. Very odd indeed

Playback of flight here:

www.flightradar24.com...

Expand it and it looks like an aerial survey pattern - flight originated at Luton Airport, departing at 00:19hrs.
Wonder if it's related to any oil / gas exploration that may be planned?
Best to do the survey at night when there is less air traffic and fewer people to question why this plane is flying up and down the area!


I wonder if there is anything that tracks military flights? Talking to my little Sis last weekend and they have had some stuff flying around out of the ordinary recently. First a Britten Norman Defender, then a week later a Predator flying around. She lives next to the old decommissioned Sculthorpe airbase in Norfolk, so is used to seeing the usual military traffic and nighttime low level helicopters, as well as the Ospreys, but thought the Defender and Predator were not the usual run of the mill stuff.

If a plane isn't flying an actual mission(for lack of a better sentence) , then you can track it, all aircraft are supposed to be ADS-B equipped by now I'm pretty sure.

Cheers guys thanks for your input. I still think it's pretty odd though that late at night flying right over gatwick airport. Oh well I'll keep my eyes open for the next one

This is just a theory but if they needed to servey the area near the airport then perhaps this was the best time to do it ie. not much air traffic. Only a theory though.

Haha thanks


But all I did was punch in the rego of the plane and the company name, usually with a few bits of info you can find out roughly what they're doing and I'm happy to help out anyone if I can

This is going to sound really stupid but when you said you just searched for the plane reg etc do you mean just in like google or something ?

Doesn't sound stupid mate
we all had to learn from somewhere. Yeah I put the rego or flight numbers into google and something should come up, it definitely will if it the regos there, flight numbers can be a bit trickier though. Sometimes I've have to ask around if I can only get the flight numbers.
