  1. Listed as a repositioning flight which either means a maintenance related flight or a sale related flight. No owner currently listed with that registration (FAA de-registered), a very early model 172 straight tail (1958 model). The flight track appears normal except some really strange turns along the flight path which may have been handling test maneuvers. Even with a total brake failure they should have been able to get it stopped or at the very least slowed enough to take an exit.
