I was wondering if anyone has had any problems with flightaware.com before, of have they found it to be acurate most of the time. I think it is a brilliant piece of software and all credit goes to the developer(s). Yesterday, (Tues), GSM825 from BFS-SFB was recorded has having flown as a 767, however, their fleet listing currently shows no active 767s due to their lease at Air India. Has flightaware.com recorded yeserday's flight acuratly?

I've yet to see an error on it - aside from map errors on international flights that are outside its coverage area. It gets its data directly from the FAA systems, so assuming the flight plans, etc. are filed correctly there it should translate into accurate coverage.

Further to my post above, if they're both still with AIC then what about one of the NOS aircraft listed on the page you refer to? I doubt that the type was NOT a 767, although it does occasionally happen that the wrong aircraft type is filed in flight plan system.

Quoting RobK (Reply 6): My contact at GLA says it was G-CEFG, so presumably this one hasn't gone to AIC for the Summer after all
Thanks RobK - the following site also has recent photos of G-CEFG still operating for GSM. This is a twist as up until now, other posts on this site have assumed both 767s have been at Air India. Seems this isn't the case - thanks for the help, it is much appreciated.
