JAL 8: Strange Flight Path Over Canada

Tue Nov 13, 2012 6:14 pm

I like PlaneFinder and noticed this anomaly on today's inbound flight from Narita to Boston on the 787. Is this a 'glitch' in the PlaneFinder software, or did this flight actually make those jagged turns? I'm assuming the former, although I do know ATC makes flights do a 'jog' or two to slow them down for spacing and sequencing.

Definitely a glitch. Turns for sequencing are usually less than 30 degrees and only happen once or twice enroute if they are needed. The sharpness of the turns in all directions gives it away too that it's a glitch.
