This sneaky mofo did not appear in Flight tracker. Jump!

Anyway.... I was looking at flight tracker and I saw something:

Jets leaving Mexico City airport (MEX/MMMX) fly directly along the city center; If you ask me that sounds like something dangerous. Not that they could’ve chosen otherwise.

This plane coming from the south was flown straight through the city, did a long que along the outskirts of the metro area (still highly dense) and then go above a swampland and Nabor Carrillo; a huge artificial lake.

I can trace the routes sort of, blue are outs, reds are ins:

These are probably wrong, but many planes still cross very populated areas on approach to the airport... is this normal in the US?
