Is this an indicator of a bigger problem with FAA ATC? In other words, I have a flight out tonight and was tracking the inbound plane (apparently halted in EWR with many others I'm sure), but should / can I expect issues with the other half of my itinerary?

Interesting. I heard a bit of chatter on a tower frequency this morning about FAA issues when I was flying, but I was not sure what it was.

"Saturday Jun-20-2009 14:05 CDT"

That's the timestamp on that page. Everything seems to be working ok now. I ran a few tail numbers and a few commercial flight numbers and they all matched with Sabre's Flight Explorer without issues.

That's so weird!

An orange and white banner on the home page says
the interface is broken as of "3pm July 7th."

But if you type info into the search boxes,
it comes up fine.

What's up with DL 66? I see the little airplane pointing back towards North America. . . glitch maybe?

edit: has to be, the thing isn't moving and its spinning around. . .

I've seen this a few times before and it is a glitch. Perhaps it has something to do with overwater flights since the other times I've seen it were both flights to/from Hawaii.

Anybody know anything about this plane? It stopped into MKE for about 1.5 hours tonight and I saw it came from YYZ. Its an all white 762...

According to the photos of N251MY on Airliners.net - the aircraft most recently was part of the MAXjet Airways - which ceased operations 24 Dec 2007. The plane is most likely headed to storage at Victorville.

Too funny Doc!

I found no problem this afternoon as I tracked SWA 2713 from MCO to ISP on my work computer and I-Phone (family member's flight).

Cheers!

I figured that when I got home and saw the destination... the question is, where has it been for the last 19 months???

Kinda makes one wonder if it's somehow related to this:

OH MY...the trauma!!!!!

What are we to do if flightaware doesn't work, or we can't figure out how to track our flights, or the flight was on time and the internet didn't give us correct info?

Yet, the FAA and the operators somehow did the job they are supposed to do, the airplane landed on time without anyone alerting flightaware or the internet of the event so there must be huge issues.

The larger implication is that they (North Koreans?) can disrupt websites and deny an important form of communication. If, say, a terrorist attack were to occur and we had no internet, we would have some troubles.

Indeed, and that is why terror organizations and terror regimes make huge efforts to set up the infrastructure to control the net, with bot nets the actual way. More than 90% of all bot nets that have been uncovered until now are steered from computers in one country: Bloody Red China.
