Update: WSJ Disables Private Flight Data Search

leave a comment »

Shortly after publishing the searchable database of private flight data, the Wall Street Journal has disabled the search function.  I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but it was within a couple of days of releasing the database.  I’m not sure if that’s just because of a technical problem (many more people searching the database than the system could support), or for some sort of legal or editorial reason.  You can still look at the results of some searches that they have already performed, but that’s a lot less interesting.

 

A note on the website says:  Editor’s note: Usage of this tool is temporarily limited to viewing searches previously created by WSJ editors.
