    Surprised you have not encountered this FR24 quirk before. F-WSSS1 would have acquired the flight somewhere very close to Changi possibly even on the runway and FR24 has just hung onto its code deep into the flight while several other feeders were actually tracking the aircraft. Has been happening for a long time - I have seen a flight from Auckland to KUL hold onto a NZ code until well over Australia.

    This is the first time I came across.

    I thought I am still suffering from my Hang over - last night I had quite a few bottles of beers. LOL

    Up to now it is still hanging onto a few aircrafts near Philippines.

    I have noticed similar thing in South Atlantic crossings. Flights go all the way through the ocean with same radar code and apparently don't need Santa Helena Island's receiver contact (if it passes near). They simply don't enter in estimation. Is it completely new or could it be an issue?

    Estimations are back since a few days.

    Seems that Flightfeeder has an Over The Horizon capability now, according to the FR24 tracking a F- station near Geraldton in Western Australia is tracking a C172 at 5000' near PIY, around 255 nautical miles away........????
