    Couple of years ago I caught a flight to Lanseria. Due to a storm and strong winds on our approach to the runway the flight detoured to Durban, fueled up and then went back to Lanseria

    THAT ground speed looks a little strange to me

    Bit strange, only thing that looks close to right is the SW crossover which could be FAF at 6DME. Almost the correct alt.

    Doesnt seem to go with the missed app or hold either.

    New feature on Flightradar 24 ?
    ...or has it always been there
    Was again wondering about planes overhead my house at 3am today. Saw the playback button and saw DHL going JHB to Windhoek....
    Wish they'd fly higher

    Ta. Would 12,000m be normal height ?

    Yes, that's 40,000 feet / FL400 and the correct flight level for a westbound track.

    What are strange turns? Some standard instrument departure routes require traffic to follow a certain pattern before going on track to the destination.

    12 000m = 39 000ft approximately, quite normal for a 737 on the Cape Town route.

    Checked the live history of that flight on Flightradar24 app. Nothing strange, looks like they departed RWY07 into a north easterly direction, got a left turn and radar vectoring to Grasmere VOR or RAGUL intersection where they joined the airway.
    No SIDs out of Lanseria.

    Not able to attach playback here. Seems to have turned around twice before heading to Durban then throwing a right hand down a bit...

    OK now, on track and nearly over Hopetown.

    When you see a commercial flight on Flightradar24 departing from an airfield with radar facilities, it shows the moment it starts taxiing. The initial turning on that flight's history is ground manouvering on the apron and taxiways.

    Number 1 tracked plane in the world right now...

    Can someone explain this flight trajectory and graphs?

    Flying over Luhansk right now...

    Most likely it is a temporary loss of the datastream and/corruption - the dotted lines can mean interpolated data. Can't make out the timeline but passenger jets maintain their speed within a narrow range, plus or minus wind. Therefore I think if one extrapolate time to the point where the apparent tracks veers off, and continue to where it "resumes" again, one should see normal time lapse as if it continued normally. It is simply impossible for such an aircraft to drastically increase its speed to make up the extra distance (it cruises close to the edge of transonic) or decrease for that matter (one can a bit, but it's not too far from stall either). For example, a U2 spy plane at high altitude has a very narrow safe airspeed to fly within (think it's around 10 knots), but that is extreme.
