Disclaimer and Other Information

This wrapped is based on the information provided in the below thread. While this does generalise the entire IFC I was unable to capture certain regions and airlines as I can not speculate and can only work with what has been given to me. Moving forward if you would like to be included for any other types of wrapped or things like this please be sure ot look out for topics like the one below so you can contribute and participate. While there is a US bias in this thread, this is solely because of the contributions I have received from people who have actually performed these flights or spotting sessions, these are in no part to political views.

Thank you all for reading and as for the year 2023, THATS A WRAP!
