Ghost plane interception

A few days ago, this guy was flying from Europe to Santiago SCEL and I realized that he had just passed his final destination and was still flying to the south, at FL320. He was flying for over 15 hours and would probably run out of fuel soon, so I decided to take a close look. Beautiful views at sunrise… Unfortunately, he crashed a few minutes later.

Maybe he went to sleep. Who knows?

That’s what I do everyday, oversleep by an hour and have to backtrack to my long haul destination. Just had that happen this morning.

Same @Tsumia, and then I messed up the landing after I was accidentally told to go-around and land on another runway.

Nice pictures!

Its always unfortunate when I see ghost flights. It would be nice if there was some way to notify the pilot so they can turn around and safely land.
