  • Helicopter on map; plane in photo

    I heard a helicopter overhead, went to mapview, clicked on the helicopter I saw there, and the photo is of a plane! Please keep in mind I'm new here, not an aviator of any sort except in imagination. (P.S. I'm greatly enjoying your posts.) I do have a question - why the discrepancy? I'm inclined to believe the helicopter version; it sounded like a helicopter.

    Probably because the helicopter is using a recycled registration, which once belonged to this A310. Since there are no pics of this particular Bell 429 in the database, the image picked up was still an old pic of the A310. Of course, a totally unnacurate thing, but I don't think there's much to be done, unless someone upload an actual pic of the chopper.

      Thanks so much for your help. That sounds very plausible.

        Yes, this is correct.

        We currently only match on registration - in the future we want to be able to match on both registration and serial number.

        Thanks,
