    Strange flightpath

    flightradar 2..jpgHello, my first posting here, so I hope its in the right thread.
    Have been watching this site for quite a long time to get info for my hobby, taking pics of planes
    This morning I was surprised to see that strange flightpath of a 737 started from CPH. First I thought it was a birdstrike and a waiting pattern to return but it just gained hight and headed away just as nothing had happened.

    Does anyone have an idea what may have caused that behaviour.

    Thanks in advance
    Anders

    Guess: They had a technical problem, went to a holding pattern hoping to resolve it, fixed it and continued the trip.

    More here -- looks like they may have turned back to CPH after alll ...

    Not the same aircraft ...

    SK9228 is a ferry flight number, and it's assigned randomly. It can therefore be seen anywhere in the system. Most airlines use the 9000-series for ferryflights.

    It is getting more fun :) this 537, now Palestinian

    I followed our friend down Europe passing Paris and Portugal
    but most fun is his listing at TFS as Palestinian airways from CPH

    Hi all and thanks for your answers.
    Ulf , your attachmant says it was actually scheduled from CPH at 0900. That indicates it was a problem at the original start on sunday morning. I followed it too from start at CPH via the return somewhere in Holland I think and back to Billund where it circled a few times before landing. My thought at that time was clearly that it was some kind of ferry flight or check flight without pax. But now I'm not that certain as it says 660 min delayed.

    Would be interesting to know what really happened on that flight)

    Edit: ok Ulf you posted the fueldump link when I was writing my answer..
