I was surfing through flightaware when i found this http://flightaware.com/live/flight/AAL5293
An AA flight using a C-182.
There a lot of things out of the ordinary with this flight...
-naturally the use of a C-182
-no past history of this flight number
Now the flight number suggests its an out of the ordinary flight, and we all know AA doesn't own a single c-182 and that they've significantly cut flights at STL.
So my question is,
Is this a flightaware error? AA outsourcing to someone other than MQ or what?

Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 4): Codeshare with 9K (9K also runs MWA, UIN, CGI and IRK from STL).
Nailed it. If you search the route, you'll see that KAP1195 departs and arrives at exactly the same time. The AAL flight number has erroneous data because it's not a real flight, just a codeshare number.
