It seems an AA B772 is scheduled to depart to MIA from TER. However, the flight number 9262 seems to be wrong.
What could this be, a diversion or a military charter to Lajes AB ?
Somebody to know more ?

My uneducated guess would be a military positioning flight, flying over here to the Gulf to pick up a unit flying home, especially in light of the refueling stop at Lajes (LGS)..

Its a bit of a roundabout routing if that is the case. I find that option unlikely as its so far from the great circle route between the US and middle-east. I would have thought that FRA would be a much more likely location for your scenario.
