If FlightRadar24 and FlightAware was used in an investigation, then this MIGHT be something to look into. They're not, therefore this is a non-story. This is simply a case of you wanting it to mean more than it does.
The data gets refined,
Since this is one of the first times that the history of a flight has mattered,
FlightAware compiles, aggregates, and processes data from over 45 government sources (in Europe, North America, and Oceania), dozens of airlines, commercial data providers, as well as hundreds of receivers in FlightAware's ADS-B flight tracking network. FlightAware's proprietary algorithms calculate delay and arrival time estimates to offer the most up-to-date and reliable flight tracking data on the Internet. Not all worldwide data sources (e.g., most European data) or satellite/VDL data are freely available on FlightAware.com due to government regulations or commercial agreements. You can contact us if you have a commercial need for worldwide data.
But the investigators aren't going to get that from FlightAware.
