mimku 5510n isnt on the nat tracks

Well i was looking at the nat tracks for today to put into my fmc on flightsim and i was wandering why mimku wasn't at the top in fact they haven't been for a long time and i thought they used to go 56n10w.

Just confused that's all.
Thanks

The tracks move on a daily basis according to the weather patterns and the tracks the companies indicate they would prefer to fly. Some days they are anchored North, some days South, some days an even split.

On a really 'North about' day, the top track could be RATSU.

Yeah certainly and also volcanic ash avoidance it also made me question things when i heard today lufthansa was going 56 north on the hf radio.
unless they don't need a track because they are so far north
