Flight Aware is only good for the US, Canada and some parts of the North Atlantic.

There are no sites to my knowledge that track flights across the pacific.

There was a HUGE swath of territory west of the Hawaiian islands designated by the U.S. Navy as a "No Fly Zone", as a missle was fired to shoot down a damaged satellite with potentially dangerous fuel. The missle found its target, destroyed the satellite at a safe altitude (vaporizing all of it), and deemed a success.

All aircraft were warned well in advance to avoid the area. This might have resulted in some "odd" routings as civil aviation used other routes.

As for the flight in question, DTW-NGO is nowhere near the Hawaiian islands - the direct route is over central Alaska and eastern Siberia. However, with the jet stream doing its usual winter thing AND the no-fly route, it is possible that in taking an unusual route, flightaware couldn't figure out what was going on.

Just my guess.
