Can someone tell me exactly what happened on this flight? It was a brief moment of sudden drop in altitude (6000 feets) almost at the same time with a drop on engine powers. It's a drop of signal from flightradar trackers or an issue recorded in flight? Thank you!

  • $\begingroup$ What triggers my question is actually the fact that the "glitch" itself is only for altitude on 13:16 and only after 2 other mins it drops on the speed and then recovers (higher speed than the average before) and then temporary drops again (not at the same rate as initially). $\endgroup$ – Steve Jun 11 '19 at 17:42
  • $\begingroup$ I wouldn't know why a poor signal should be an isolated event. $\endgroup$ – Sanchises Jun 11 '19 at 17:54

Smooth descent at 1500 feet per minute from 30,000 to 11,000. Nothing unusual. Or was there a blip somewhere in the data that I scrolled past? (Where?)

Edit: The blip at 13:16 is from 36,000 to 29,600 and back, in less than a minute. A 12,000 fpm dive followed by a 12,000 fpm climb (and vicious G force at the pull-up) is probably impossible for an A320-232.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes there's a blip at/after 13.16 UTC. $\endgroup$ – Sanchises Jun 11 '19 at 17:36
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for your input. I'm actually reffering to the mid-phase of the flight, 13:16 where there's a sudden drop in altitude and speed. $\endgroup$ – Steve Jun 11 '19 at 17:38
