Weird AI

Post by Radioman » Thu Jan 20, 2011 3:47 pm

I was flying a 767 using a panel that has a TCAS on the navigational display. Among other data the TCAS shows the altitude and airspeed of the AI planes it displays. While over northwestern Wyoming the TCAS showed a 737-800 goiing 1090 knots at 68,000 feet. I switched to spot plane view to read the red info next to the plane and sure enough it showed 68,000 feet. I heard center calling the plane and saying, "Continental 761 please expedite your climb to flight level 839." I have ultimate traffic X installed. I am used to seeing a few things you would not see in the real world such as Cessna 172's at 16000 feet but a 737 at 68,000 going 1090 knots? That kinda takes the cake.
