Another plane is flying weird squares

I was flying and I saw another plane flying squares. What is happening?

Maybe a square path around airport

Its most probably because the pilot has overslept, and his aircraft is trying to reach a waypoint but can’t, so its circling around it.

Probably circling the airport cause they overslept

@AlphaSeven why does it show squares though?

I think its just a glitch. Its the same old circles, because it is impossible to make such tight turns to make squares at such a high altitude and speed.

Because the avionics of IF does not support circle paths yet, so he it is recognized as if it were square

This doesn’t have anything to do with avionics. Its just the way that the flight path is displayed. If you looked at the aircraft itself you’d see that it is at a constant bank trying to reach the Waypoint, hence the actual circle being made.

I know it’s circles cause I overshot Toronto from Frankfurt and I was going in circles around Toronto

I said that it is recognized as square due to the lack of support for circle paths

Circular flight paths are supported. I assume you mean the flight plan itself instead the flight path?

They can be done but the Interface (Flight plan, path…) does not recognize them
