gariac will probably jump in a correct me if I am wrong on this - I believe the dotted-line is the intended or filed flight plan, and the solid purple line is actual flight path? I notice there is a waypoint called "EXITT" that the logged flight path usually ends on these flights, right where the plane either enters or exits the range. I take it the pilot or copilot forgot to switch something off?

What happened is both the Tonopah Test Range and Groom Lake use KTNX for their location. That is why the dotted line starts at the TTR. That is, flightaware thinks the route starts at the TTR. However, the tracking shows the actual route.

This is probably an error with the FAA "filter" rather than what the pilot files.

Groom flights generally are at 14kft or 15kft, depending on direction.
