    Fabin,
    In general you'll only see an entire flightpath if it is recognised and recorded by one of our radar receivers at each end of the flight, otherwise you'll only see the section that is picked up by the last radar receiver. In most areas as the number of receivers is steadily growing this will become less 'frequent.'
    Regards,
    Gregg

        No worries at all and I just remembered another point whilst looking at the map- a radar may only pick up an aircraft near an airport (or it's point of origin in this case), not at the airport as can be seen by the picture below where the Careflight Rescue helicopter is picked up after taking off from Westmead Hospital and is seen heading for RAAF base Richmond, probably on a training flight (near Sydney, Australia);

        (click on the pic for a larger view).

        It has been observed flying this flightpath for some days now.

        Regards,
        Gregg
