Don`t be silly....

Note to pilot.....

Find out where you are supposed to be going, before you set off.... then write down the compass bearing, so you can set off in the right direction.....

Re: Don`t be silly....

@shutter 

Alternatively maybe the service starts at Exeter, has a scheduled stop at Lands End and was starting on the last leg to the Isles of Scilly before flight radar had updated from the first leg?

Many years ago a friend was going on holiday down to the south coast somewhere and for the first time had decided to drag a shed behind his car for them to live in for the week. After nervously negotiating the big local motorway island he cruised along happily until being somewhat surprised to read Welcome to Scotland, so he went there instead.

@Baldrick1 

Looking at the time differences between the scheduled and actual/estimated departure and arrival times it seems the Exeter (1 hour extra) diversion was not 'planned'.

Re: Don`t be silly....

@Baldrick1  & @RobPN  Yes, indeedy.... I did track it further... it landed at Exeter ( shortly after the shot was taken).. and after about 15 -20 mins did, indeed re-route to the Scilly Isles..

 

Just seemed to me to be a bit of a "funny" routeing at the time ! ... and as said... it`s got a scheduled 20 minute flight time... but if you check on that window, it`s showing a 1 hour 20 minute flight time ! .
