  • Davis Strait

    Hi there (first post so I hope it's not a stupid question) ...

    Why do aircraft appear to wiggle off course when crossing the Davis Stait between Greenland and Canada?

    Is it due to magnetic anomalies in that area or some other reason?

    This will be the FAA (Orange.) Aircraft, they are estimated positions from the FAA Feed and not Flightradar24 Feeders.

      Thanks for your reply Speedbird - do you know how the positions are estimated in the FAA feed?

        Hi.

        That is question for Mike to answer as he knows how the FAA system works.

          Sorry, I have no idea how FAA collects it's data, but I would guess that it could be from different sources including primary radar and satellite tracking, that can have some differences in accuracy.
