So I had our ATC guy use his Flight Radar 24 account to track your flight.  The paid version gives you access to historical data that the free version does not.  We tracked your flight the whole way until just around LUX.  Thats when a chunk of missing data starts, and it does not resume until after BUBBA.  Very interesting...

That’s messed up.  Can you post the time stamps between missing data and I can listen to that time interval on atc live?

I don't have access to it at the moment. If memory serves it was around 1430 local

You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!  Reminds me of Col. Jessup ...movies make it seem there are people in power that can make a whole flight disappear.  This is only missing some of the data....LOL ..... For all those govt officials monitoring this post I don't mean anything by it I am just joking  ... Hold on a couple black SUV's just pulled in and now a knock on my door ... Should I go and answ....................................................

Definitely left a mark...Just a matter of time.  Hope it is not a Mooney like the wing was here.  Engineers: would that have made it down safely?

Not if that was a fuel tank . . . .

Thought I would share this.  The purple grids are NOTAMS for drone operations in the DFW area.  Most are around 400ft and below.  Big one to the south is surface to 11, 000 feet and the one to the west is surface to 3,500 feet.

how big was this thing? i'm not sure I would have seen it, 400ft away and passing at over 200kts

It's hard to say exactly, but I was mainly able to see it because I was looking down on it while the sun was hitting it, giving some reflections.  I was also searching hard for it continually because I knew it was there on the adsb screen...   But, it's not to hard to see birds in close proximity either.  If I had to guess, I'd say it appeared to be roughly 3-4ft across.

Just wait till you see the number of NOTAMS when Amazon starts delivering packages via drones!  I don't think we will see anything BUT blue.
