    And here's why having proper data quality screeners is vitally important :

    https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...ll=1#post91634

    Just out of a small selection spanning 2 weeks I've found 4 errors in the data submitted by people via the web form which has been copied and pasted into the database without any checks.

        Mike,

        Can you remove from the ICAO list

        PT6A still my favourite code, just for the engine
        P68C
        PT19

        The coding logic for the drop down makes it impossible to go through in a logical way so I will add to this as I notice them.

        And of course anything with these codes in the DB will have to be modified too!

I believe this forum software supports email to forum if enabled in the panel. The data "screeners" could cast their experienced eyes over the data and report any inaccuracies so that if the form submission has already been processed it can be swiftly corrected. Without having any proper screening in place you are at high risk of ending up back where you were with a database full of trash.
          There is absolutely no connection between the forum and the aircraft database, so any solution that is including the forum will always be 100% manual at the end and will never be an option for us.

            I have found the Rwandair 737 first flight on playback (06E012, 1726Z taxying at RNT) and added all the fields and entered 2017-05-13 in the last box. Clicked submit, the first flight date box turns red and the form refuses to send and the submit button greys out. What is wrong with it? The first flight was on MAY 13, 2017 - exactly as entered in numerical form.

            Mike an explanation please.
            We have processed more than 8000 aircraft submissions from the form and there are no known issues. If you find any errors please send an error description together with a screenshot to support@fr24.com so we can investigate and try to replicate.

              Sorry for spending 4 days in hospital. I will try not to do it again. I close the thread here as I can't see any positive coming out of it.
