UAL35 (787) Returning To LHR?

Thu Aug 08, 2013 5:59 pm

Is this aircraft returning to LHR? Just viewed it on the New Airplane flight tracker site and it shows it heading back to LHR.

On flightradar24 the aircraft is heading towards North America and is about 200 miles from Newfoundland.

Looks like a glitch. I've wondered since Boeing apparently receives gobs of live telemetry data - why not use their own positioning data rather than rely on flightaware for their 787 tracker?

JL036 operating SIN-HND Aug 7th returned to SIN due to a problem with the weather radar though.

Ok, I just looked again and same site (New Airplane) shows it heading back west, but still over the UK. Not a very reliable site, obviously. Thanks.

A few anomolies on Flight Radar.

Currently showing a BA 787 operating EDI reg G-ZBJA as Right reg but I'm assuming this isn't right?
