The C160's were around at the correct heights for paras!!! into OTA, but don't quote me on that!!!

HI re the VC10 referred to in post #19 above I saw this on another site.

Cant see any mention of todays QRA which has been ongoing since mid afternoon.
Involved were XV105 VC10 90P62 and two Tornados ZE338 and ZE757.
The thread continues suggesting this wasn't  a drill but an operation against a Russian Aircraft which had strayed a little close.  Interesting stuff!!!

John,

That is strange -  it's not on GAS or airframe.org but there's even a photo in my database. I haven't updated my database so it's come from somewhere. I have heard that AirNav use more than one database for updates.

Looking at the entry in Database Explorer it even has the construction number and the LK, PT, LK2 and PT2 cells have the photographers names and photo details/URL.

Try going into Database Explorer and removing any ... from cells for that aircraft and see if it updates for you.

Hi Tom I have checked the Database and firstly I can't find anything on AE1CC6!! I then had a look at my Pictures which If i understand it correctly are there because the RB picked those aircraft up?

I have two sets of two  of two different F15s logged there  00-3000 and 00-3002.

Any thoughts?

John,

I have 00-3002 as an F-15E of 492 FS, mode S AE1795. I have not got a record for 3000 but as the ser is just 2 digits away I'd be surprised if it isn't an F-15E from the same squadron.

You were not wrong John, I only found Allied 1 in my log used by AE0977 165834 Boeing C-40A Clipper. So it looks like its used across different arms of the American forces. Perhaps someone in the know may be able to shed some light on it. The aircraft today had an Israely hex and I could not find it on the net.
So its interesting and a little mysterious:-)

Sorry if its caused any missunderstanding

Post by: Canonjohns40D on April 19, 2009, 08:27:24 PM
Hi John no misunderstanding I was interested in this callsign and so i asked on another site. This might help explain it!!

Allied 1 is not the ATC callsign, ie, you might hear things like C130s using it on sbs, but might be calling as Talon/Shadow etc on a scanner, have seen a Dutch AF reported as using it once before too.

A bit  more, apparently an Israeli C130 showed up on SBS and Radarbox with Allied1 as its "callsign" today. It was going into Brize on a Cargo flight. It was 738A92 serial 545.

Hi 43C0AE,  flight id: 1DR10 is recorded on my box here in Northern Ireland at 4.50pm. I was in work but my family were around the local area in two different locations at this time. They couldn't wait to tell me about a "military" type helicopter seen by them.

They are used to me and my spotting and do a reasonable job in my absence. They described it as Army green with sort of pods on it. I showed them some pictures to aid identification. It would appear it may have been a Dauphin and headed inbound Belfast I would assume Belfast Aldergrove (RAF Aldergrove).

I'll keep my eyes and ears open this evening.

It's pretty common to see civvies doing charters for the US military and using REACH or RCH callsigns. If I recall, I had a World Airways MD-11 overhead last night with an RCH callsign.

In another thread there's mention of a Flyglobespan 767 doing a charter for the RAF and using an RRR callsign.

Depends whether or not the crew enter the flight id in the FMS/Transponder panel before departure. Under Eurocontrol regs the id should be set and match what is entered in the flight plan so perhaps the aircraft in question are Europe bound. Not sure what the FAA policies are in this respect.

The thing with KC-135s and maybe some other airframes are that they do have an ID programmed, it's just that the Radarbox doesn't decode it.  The SBS will.  This is one of the bugs to be fixed in 2.1.  That's why this is odd to me.  I've logged 64 different KC-135 since March 28 when I dumped old MyLog data.   These are the first two I've got an ID for.  Someone else in the area with an SBS always get the IDs.

No Squawk noticed but height was less than 5000ft.

Can't see why they would use Tirpitz1 c/s for that. Although Barnes Wallace designed the Tallboy bomb used to sink the Tirpitz, the events most people identify him with are the design of the 'Upkeep' bouncing bomb and the Dambusters raids.

Other than the perpetually changing transponder code all I've got is ICAO:000001 and the callsign STRIKE11, there was an F15 up earlier with a similar fid: STRIK11 (mission name?). It was about for much of the afternoon (midday-3) with the freaky squawks then re-appeared around 10pm squawking 0443. Another F15 or Raptor perhaps?

Cheers Malc, it's not too bad a bit further down but in the upper FL300s it's really knocking them out at the moment. Pity everything else is Aer Lingus, Ryanair and Easyjet. All the decent stuff seems to route POL.

What's with all these French A310s lately?

Operation Joint Warrior, starting 11th May.  Now got a New Zealand Air Force B757 at FL130 into Kinloss approach (KIW845).  Looks like being a great 2 weeks of action.

@tarbat thanks yes of course that starts early next week doesn't it? as you say there should be some great stuff popping up on the box. I'll have the camera pointing at the sky when possible for certain.

@malc: Canon EOS40D with EF100-400 IS lens. It's good for the big aircraft up to FL400 at near overhead transit but smaller aircraft closer to the horizon are digiscope territory.

Lots of US military aircraft here in Bogotá; but most of them send a Mode S ID beginning with AE (e.g. AE1539, received today) and "Allied1" as the flight number. How do I find out what aircraft type these are?  (Probably transports; but who knows...)

Today AE116E was (unusually) sending a little more than the Mode S ID.  It sent "84-0179" as its registration.  No idea how to determine what it was.

Yep it's one of the Omni Air fleet operating under contract for Air Mobility Command. It'll be a troop flight.

Aircraft used to be long to ATA so it probably became property of said bank after their demise.

Whilst that aircraft was shown on the map and in my list (showing full ADSB), I also had another RCH aircraft, Lockheed C-5B Galaxy (L-500), AE0573 in my list...

(its callsign did show up in the list, but now after looking in my Log, the callsign is not present??)

Anyway, looked out of the window to see a huge wake trail over my house behind a heavy aircraft which blatently wasnt showing on my radar - reached for the binoculars and there it was in all its beauty  Lockheed C-5B Galaxy (L-500)!

Technically, John is correct - Guardrail is a program name, whereas the official DoD name for all C-12 variants is Huron, regardless of mission.   See DoD4120-15, which is the bible for all US military designations.

Unfortunately, I didn't have my RB on having only just got back in from work and my wife was monopolising her lap-top!     At about 1958 - 2002 this evening a pair of aircraft probably half or a mile line astern, passed overhead at about 3-4,000' guestimate, from the quick glance I had of the rear of the second one, they were twin jet engined with high tailplane (like Learjets - they may even have been LJs......? but I don't think so) in military colours.    They continued west, probably 5-10 miles out over Mounts Bay, then did a slow turn to port and returned east, to the south of The Lizard - did anyone monitor them - any info. would be appreciated.

Hi Puddy and Welcome.

You cannot see USAF (with  few exceptions ) and UK mil ac on the screen as they do not have full ADS-B. The same applies to civil aircraft that do not have ADSB.

How come?

"264" is indeed an Irish Air Corps PC-12.

It's also a South African AF Hawk, a Chilean Air Force Cessna O-2, a French Air Force Mirage F1, a Chilean Navy Bandeirante, a Kon Marine Lynx, etc, etc.

That's the problem with translating a hex code into a military serial and then looking up the details on, say, Airliners.net on the assumption that the same serial isn't used by any other air arms.

You would really have to ask AirNav but, yes, my understanding is that some data comes from the GAS server based on the hex code, but the registration/serial is used to look up other data on Airliners.net and so is subject to error if the serial (or reg, come to that) is/has been used on more than one airframe.

I don't know why it's being done that way.

Allocator,

I'm hoping its one of the 2 TOR that were at Northolt for the photo shoot this weekend

ZE956 or ZA557

ZE956 should be 43C044
ZA557 ?
43C1BB I have had it before with BATMAN C/S so maybe 9 Sqn

hopefully someone may confirm later today.

Not much help I know but we might get a result:-)

I'm working through my Tornados at the moment.  I've got 43C1BB with callsigns TESTID01 and BATMAN01.  Minimum altitude for each flight were 190ft and 380ft, suggesting a GR4 operating on the Tain Range.

the following callsigns with Hex IDs noted at the same time tonight, I presume 'somewhere over France'
'VASEU573' 3B777D
'MARC360' 3B7777
'CEV4652' 3B7780
'CABI574' 3B7779
all at FL250 or thereabouts

no idea what these are

Picking up 43C1BB at FL220 with a callsign of RR9825, but not an aircraft I've picked up before.

Anybody have any ideas what this is?

Edit: Just read this in the other thread - any idea of registration?

43C1BB      TOR                  2009/05/20 10:42:12   2009/03/06 09:19:17

My last attempt at tying this up was a non starter. But here is some more info gleened from the web.

43C1BB picked up as RFR 9825 2009/06/07 12:46 by me

On MSF Forum 6 x TOR reported at Lajes enroute USA. From the codes (fin No's) reported one was ZD744

Followed a link on [email protected] forum to a tornado list posted by Ray on the Kinetics Forum were 43C1BB is linked to ZD744 as yet unconfirmed.

So I'll keep looking at the logs from the USA and see if there are any contacts there.

Cheers John

I tracked these two Italian Air Force KC-767's as they moved NE just north of KLAX. I lost contact with them as they passed over Mojave Airport at FL 210.

AA521F                           N764TT  BKC6  Untitled             2009/06/17 20:43:43 
AA5D44                          N767TT  BKC6  Italy - Air Force    2009/06/17 20:46:29

From my quick research, I do not think these two tankers have actually been delivered to the Italians. So, this may have been a test flight over the Pacific and/or over Mojave.

As a foot note 43C2B3 was picked up by my box and was reported on another forum as operating out of Hawarden late last week on two occasions so (as yet unconfirmed to a serial but maybe ZZ417) Watch this space.

It wasn't 3F9923 50+35  C160 that was around yesterday was it as airliners.net don't like the + in the serial. Hence the 50 35. Just a thought.

The Transall sounds a lot more believable.

However 3F9923 does indeed come up in RadarBox with details for French Air Force Mirage IIIC "50 35", complete with a link to a photo of Russian Air Force Mi-8MTV "50 blue" !!

Come on AirNav, it's not rocket science, you know what you need to do to get the aircraft details and photos working properly ...

The problem is if the aircraft 'registration' is something daft like 234.  A search on airliners.net with such a meaningless registration is always going to fail, whether it is done manually or automatically by RB autopopulate.

Just try this one example to see the effect!

The problem is if the aircraft 'registration' is something daft like 234.  A search on airliners.net with such a meaningless registration is always going to fail, whether it is done manually or automatically by RB autopopulate.

That's precisely my point - the RadarBox server ignores the fact that it already has a hex code by the time it does the photo lookup and hence knows the type, and probably the operator, as well as the 'reg'.

So instead of searching airliners.net for a photo of the aircraft it has already identified, say 'French Air Force Mirage F1 234' for example, instead the AirNav server does a totally random search based solely on the serial, and not only does it display a photo of the first '234' that it comes across, whether or not it bears any relation to the already-identified aircraft, it even populates the database with details which could be for a completely unrelated aircraft.

As I said in a previous post, AirNav have said that once V3.0 has settled down they will be looking at better ways of doing the above.  I hope we don't have too long to wait.

Guys, this thread has really taken off (pun intended) but it has truly changed my view, I have always been interested in civil aviation, but now military aircraft has caught my attention mostly because of your enthusiasm on this thread and of course this would not be possible without RB.  Keep it up.

I spent a happy (but somewhat strange) 3 months there in 1981.  I didn't know that there were that many F104's in the whole world!

There was an excellent aircrew feeder called Enrico's that was good for lunch.  We were living down town in Cagliari living off pizza, wine and beer - oh, those were the days :-)

For some reason I didn't take my camera with me which was a great shame.

it is still open permanetly for german and italian planes , plus frequent nato countries, included israel a few months ago. the british have left permanently due to budget restrictions so has the us, but the latter are more ore less always present.
the playground is always active except in august and the cubic corporation range is open, and mirto radar, frasca range too

Hi fatkat,

From my own observations the Typhoons only seem to use mode-s when operating from BAe facilities or with RFR c/s when going on deployment, and then its only the lead aircraft of the flight which is transmitting. (Frustrating but makes sense from a security point of view)

No idea what they have; but I'll be keeping an eye out for them in SKBO (once I'm permanently up ... getting there).

Indeed it was:

(http://www.civilaircraftregisters.org/Mode_S_Resources/Cessna%20UC36B.jpg)

Not only is the aircraft type quoted incorrect for the hex code, it's a type which has never existed ! (the UC-36B was the military designation for the 1935 Lockheed 10E Electra).

I despair ...

Although on my Radarbox it was listed with no registration or photo, an unknown.  But then my Navdata database was built from scratch from other sources (GAS, Aerodata, etc.).

EDIT: My preferred source for military (http://www.live-military-mode-s.eu/) has AE1191 identified as:
          Serial: 03-0016
          Type: UC-35B / F-15E
          Operator: 2-228th Aviation

Although even GAS have this one wrong!!!

I know I've asked this before, but do you have any specific examples of two airframes which have been recorded using the same code?

Still trying to get my head around the reason why, if the same codes are swapped around from one aircraft to another, we appear to have seen many more codes used than there are F-15s in the UK.

Dave,

As I said before, I deleted the logs with the F-15 serials as they made no sense. If you go to Albert's site, http://live-military-mode-s.eu/ you will see that all the serials of F-15Es at LN are now in brackets meaning that although the relevant code has previously been tied to a particular tail number it can no longer be guaranteed. You will also note that most entries for F-15Es have no serials recorded.

Hi all,

Called in at Cottesmore on my way to Peterborough yesterday. (Took the box for company). While there 3 x Harriers launched.

ZG511 left as a singleton (no mode-s) followed by ZG505 & ZD379

43C3E2 popped up on the box when they initially started up then went off until they were airborne. (43C3E2 should be ZG505).

They came back a while later as a three ship and did some circuits.
43C2E2 on the box until after the run and break then off until it blipped when they shut down on the flight line.

Had 3 more Harriers on the box about the same time (not seen) they must have been out of Wittering, which was all quiet when I passed on the A1.

Challenging hobby but thats what makes it interesting:-)

Cheers John

No I only picked up the hex code (on my SBS rather than RB). 

I was simply referring to the fact that HAWG is an 81st FS callsign, whereas 81-0977 according to Scramble and Aerodata is/was based at Nellis with 57Wg/66WS.

Post by: Yachtie45 on August 13, 2009, 05:35:05 PM
81-0952 seem to be correct for AE19D4,
once in a while they show up with their regs mentioned instd of  the usual callnames.
Thus AE19D4 came up with 81009520
as well as
AE19E1 e.g. showed 81009660 several times

You can't always go by callsigns Dave. e.g. there was a HAWG95 in the area yesterday too but it was an OC-135W :o)

For a long time I have thought that this thread should be renamed 'any military aircraft' due to the routine nature of the reported aircraft from the RAF & USAF.  ;-) OK agreed the MC-12 transit was unusual

HOWEVER, At last a truly interesting Mil aircraft in the UK.  Just had 750156 A319 9M-NAA Callsign NR1.  Malysian Air Force flight departed Luton and went directly over my house with full ADS-B.  Shame about the 8/8ths cloud cover.

Hi ACW, interest is relative isn't?.  What is 'routine or uninteresting' to you maybe interesting to others, that said 9M-NAA is different, I saw it come up on my box and never saw it either.  Ah well....

Tramline et all.  This is my personal view and I know many of you will not agree with it. I just feel this topic is unwieldy in its current form.  In my opinion there are yahoo groups like reachhunters_int or Touchdown-news that are better suited for the reporting of UK, US and European Mil aircraft that are near their home country or on routine transits like the many GAF Challengers or Reach aircraft.  These groups are really useful and I use them regularly for the routine spotter type reports.

It is very hard with a topic that has got to 40 pages in under 4 months to find the gems.  I dip in and out and sometimes miss the unusal transits lost in a sea of UK based aircraft/Europe based aircraft.  Therefore I miss the prewarning that I could have had to target the aircraft with an alert etc when they arrives over my head. 

I would prefer this topic only to highlight unusual transits like US Army MC-12s routing to and from the Middle East, or foreign fighters/helicopters deployed on major exercises.  A Typhoon picked up over California on deployment is interesting, a Typhoon flying over the north of England is topic clutter that hides the good stuff.  Just my 2 penneth

Sorry if it offends.  I stand ready to be shot down in flames.

Well argued and I won't shoot you down.  It's all about opinions, perhaps we need 'Military Gems' and 'Military Aircraft' threads?  Again, its all down to opinions isn't?
Title: Re: Interesting Military Aircraft
Post by: viking9 on August 15, 2009, 09:39:07 PM
I seem to remember that CanonJohns40D started this topic off because some people who are not interested in mil ac were getting sniffy about them being reported on the 'Interesting Aircraft' topic.

I'm sure lots of our members have found it useful and as far as I'm concerned anyone should be able to post about any mil ac that they find interesting. Remember, some people live in areas that are rarely visited by mil ac and so find it exciting when one comes up on their box and wish to share the experience.

If you want to start a topic about 'military gems' then go ahead and do so, but don't complain if you find other members' idea of a military gem does not accord with yours.

As for prewarning of mil ac coming your way. ANRB is not much cop for that, for many reasons. For that you need PlanePlotter, preferably with multilateration.

3F9988 is German - a Transall 160   - I think your system is suffering from Photographic information corruption due to the Non-Unique Registration being used to key the request for a Photograph, and then using the information attached to the photo to overwrite the correct information from GATS.

And the Aeronavale Frégate (no 51) that RadarBox comes up with is WFU, so there's no way it could be that aircraft.

Unfortunately, the incorrect aircraft details/photos bug isn't scheduled to be fixed in V3, but once that's released the signs are looking good for a solution in the not-too-distant future.

Dave, is that wishful thinking, or have Airnav given some sort of firm commitment to fix this?   Maybe planned to be included in Airnav Flightwatch (http://www.airnavsystems.com/forum/index.php?topic=3062)?

Sorry, can't comment any more in public at this stage.

But put it this way - if the problems persist in the long-term, it won't be because a permanent, reliable, comprehensive fix wasn't available (it is).

In the end, like most bug-fixes and improvements, it will come down to pressure from users - I know I certainly don't like seeing incorrect details and random photos of unrelated aircraft, especially as those are usually much more exotic than what I'm actually picking up !

The easy way is to hit the PrtSc key on the keyboard, this copies the screen to the Windows clipboard.  Open Windows paint, or your favourite graphics program and select Paste.

You can then crop the bit of the screen that you want, save it to your desktop, then attach it to your post using the Browse button below the forum post reply box :-)

Hi Anorak

Re those Quid callsigns, it was interesting. They were refueling a B52 or B52s off Lajes.
I saw this on another site which was offering this information:

Reference to Quids 93 and 94, their receiver was CHILL 42 again B52(s).
It has been on a Global Power mission to somewhere in the Med Sea (Possibly Decci range?).
Quid 91/92 refuelled it inbound, 93/94 refuelled it outbound.

they don't have to hit a range, a few months ago a couple of B-2A's got as far as this side of the Atlantic off Lands End before turning home on a Global Power.

I think the B-52 must have got as far as at least Sardinia before turning back?

it's amazing what goes on around and above us and these comms above were clear on HF Radio!!!

Hi Spaice could they be related to the Clinton visit? I'm interested as she is due Belfast this afternoon/Evening so we might see some unusual traffic, certainly for NI, across our skies as a result.

What sort of route were these taking please?

Hi Canonjohns40D, I'm unable to verify the route, just picked up an KC-135 62-3550 AE07B9 as I type this, for a Sunday afternoon it is busy with American military.  I am based in Chesham, Bucks,

Now I have 82-0653 AE19EE listed as a Thunderbolt.

99-0004 ADFEBA is a C-32A callsign SAM5794 and was most likely carrying Mrs Clinton.

Nothing unusual in so many C-17s (and a few C-5s), would be unlikely to be anything to do with Mrs Clinton unless she has taken a battalion of infantry and a few light tanks with her. :o)

03-3113 c/s RCH3113 took westbound route NAVPI>MAM>DIKAS

John,

They do on my map! PlanePlotter with multilateration. You don't even have to have a Radarbox or SBS1 but it's nice to share.

Conditions might be particularly good today for you.

97-0044 is RCH9744, came up from Germany and went west routing NAVPI>MAM>GITUS

AE07DE C-17 93-0604 took the same route.

These ac support ops all over the world. The RCH indicates a Global Reach aircraft - Sunday is just like any other day for those guys.

Sorry to disappoint you, but it must be 30-odd years since I last saw a Kon Marine Tracker.

I'm afraid it's yet another example of the aircraft details/photo bug - what you picked up was neither of the two aircraft pictured, but a French Army Socata TBM-700.

AirNav thinks it does. That's what's in the database for AE189A

It's Reg N35LX.  This is a heavily modified 737 which is being used as a testbed for the avionics suite that's destined for the new F-35 Lightning II.  A very nice one to log.

I had CATBIRD today too, from 10:38 to 11:41 UTC.  But this was AE0357, which decodes to USN C-20A (Gulfstream 3) 830500.
Title: Re: Interesting Military Aircraft
Post by: viking9 on November 15, 2009, 11:07:24 PM
You are right Dave. I tracked that C-20A in on PP mlat from Lydd this morning.

Where I think the confusion arises is that N35LX flies under the title CATB (Cooperative Avionics Test Bed) and is known as CAT-bird.

For those interested there is a analysis of the aerodynamic design of the CATB ac here:

Hi John,

He's showing a heading of 281º on PP. He's just passing REMSI.

I've found this prob before when RB doesn't show heading and SBS boxes do.

Tom
Title: Re: Interesting Military Aircraft
Post by: Fenris on November 27, 2009, 11:29:01 AM
So where is the heading on PP coming from? An SBS sharer I presume if you're saying that RB isn't decoding heading on the port 30003 output.
Title: Re: Interesting Military Aircraft

SBS doesn't output heading either (only track), but in this case said C-37 doesn't broadcast track (although of course it's possible to derive average track from successive lat/lon reports).

In this case I was not using mlat and the bearing was shown in PP under 'course', so I assume the ac was sending it.

To clarify, that C-37 sends ADS-B Airborne Position squitters (which is why it plots on BaseStation) but doesn't send ADS-B Airborne Velocity squitters (hence no groundspeed or track on BaseStation).

It may send track and/or heading as EHS DAPs, but none of the enthusiast Mode S receivers decode these, so the PP course value can only have been derived from successive ADS-B position reports.

I don't think that's the case this time, probably due to a transponder swap.  The only GAF flights I've ever logged into KIAD are C-160s and A310s.  Probably unlikely they'd fly a Challenger across the pond for these typical visits.

A steady 24 kt is no problem - I think the C-17 can take 30 kt @90º. It's the unpredictability of gusts that make it dodgy to land. Discretion is the better part of valour.

I've been tracking him on PP and he's made it to Prestwick. Just after he departed the squall hit us here and the baro dropped to 989.

New owner of Airnav Radarbox , how do you set filters etc to pick up military traffic , do you need more equipment or software. We have USAF "Reach" Traffic all the time  C-17's , C-5's etc but I have yet to pick any up flying overhead - they trail overhead every day .

All I seem to pick up is civil airliners , even missed a biz jet landing at my local 10 miles away , yet someone with SBS-1  I know picked it up on their set.

Any info appreciated - I only have the bog standard provided aerial.

Hi Microlight,

You don't have to set filters to pick up mil aircraft but you will not see them on the screen because, with a few exceptions they do not have full ADS-B. But they should display on the interface.

Hi Tom

It's the standard aerial that comes with the Radarbox and it's on the windowsill.

We have a number of airways directly above my location and USAF Military transports are going over on a daily basis at frequent times mainly C-17's and
C-5's.

Whats the best setting for all the filters anyway - what do you have "Quick Filter" set to ? Not sure which filter to have as their are so many...

John,

Ghost 71 was operating close to you in AARA13 today. I tracked him in PP for over 2 hours. He was squawking 3671 because  he was under Aberdeen control.

The squawks can be confusing unless you know the region the ac is in. 3640-3677 covers Aberdeen and 3660-3677 covers Solent App.

Correct - although the CTM ICAO code is specifically France's Military Air Transport Command (Commandement du Transport Aerien Militaire Francais), as opposed to the generic French Air Force/Force Aerienne Francais ICAO code FAF which you will see used by, for example, the E-3s.

MLAT or CIRCLES in Planeplotter can give you a clue of it's location.

(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2775/4191827629_12fb33708f.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tarbat/4191827629/sizes/o/)

Now that's a useful feature to include in Radarbox v4.0.  If MLAT isn't possible, then sharer circles can really help pinpoint the approx. location of an aircraft.

Stuart,

You can disregard routes for military aircraft. I tracked him on PP mlat via LAM>Luton>REMSI. He has just passed SLYDA heading for RINGA and Oceanic at FL260.

Cheers Tom I thought it was odd a routing. I don't usually  get stuff around Lyneham on here as I'm too far north.

You can disregard routes for military aircraft.

And, arguably, they shouldn't be in the database at all unless they are regular, scheduled flights.  The AirNav server does indeed return EBBR-EGDL for BAF642 - not sure what needs to be done to get that removed.

Last week the THT flight was from Ascension to Brize but diverted into BHX.  It's a trooping flight and I'm led to believe that THT took this flight on after the demise of Globespan (is this correct?).  It's an A340 by the way.

Kevin,

This ac arrived at Yeovil today with a crew to collect a new Merlin and was confirmed as M-517. It has on previous occasions used the c/s M505 which may have led to the confusion. Previous reg was ZK162.

Even more confusing is the fact that today he was using the c/s DAF3360 which is one usually usually used by an AS550C2 Fennec.

Didn't get a visual myself but it was flying around at 8,000' in the area that Marshalls use for air tests and there is a Tristar currently at Marshalls. My first thought was that the box was in it since it was a civilian, but that cannot be right as ADS-B was not around then. I assume they are either retrofitting or trialling it.

Odds are good that some more milair will be seen in the upcoming weeks from this location as air patrols cover the Olympics. I haven't seen it, but AE11D2 71-1407 E3TF has been seen over the Greater Vancouver area as SNTRY21 recently, most likely doing AWACS work.

Currently AE13E5, 62-3582, USAF WC-135C Constant Phoenix is around, ID TORA 79.

Anyone know if TORA is a regular ID for this? Last time I saw it, Novelber last year, it was using an ID of AGING 29.

Red Meatball of a Japanese Air Force 744 flying overhead in Texas right now:

87C00 JAF801 20-1101

Route says RJTT-KLAX.  Obviously not updated.  Headed ESE at 38000 ft.  Doesn't look like he's stopping anywhere in Texas or, for that matter, the US.

Looks like others on the network caught him coming east from California.

That route needs to be removed completely from the database, not updated.

The Japanese Air Force clearly doesn't have a scheduled route network, besides which ICAO designator JAF doesn't belong to them anyway, but to TUI Airlines Belgium t/a Jetairfly.

Dave

forgive my ignorance, but is the route actually invalid, or is it more a case of an "unfortunate/unavoidable" consequence of the Japanese AF callsign inadvertantly taking another operators route purely by having "JAF" as part of the flight ID?

I've often noticed "mis coded" ICAO codes picking up dodgy operator logos as a result of presumably flight crew error.

Just curious!

I've often noticed "mis coded" ICAO codes picking up dodgy operator logos as a result of presumably flight crew error.

The route is both invalid for our purposes, since clearly the same callsign has now been used on at least two different routings - JAF001/002 is another even more common example - and also illegal under ICAO rules:

In accordance with ICAO Doc 8168 [PANS-OPS] Vol. I, Part VIII, 1.3, flight crew of aircraft equipped with Mode S having an Aircraft Identification Feature shall set the Aircraft Identification in the transponder. This setting shall correspond to the Aircraft Identification specified in item 7 of the ICAO flight plan, or if no flight plan has been filed, the aircraft registration.

Aircraft Identification, not exceeding 7 alphanumeric characters, is to be entered in item 7 of the flight plan and set in the aircraft as follows:

Either,

(a) The ICAO three letter designator (not the IATA two letter designator) for the aircraft operating agency followed by the flight identification, for example, BAW213 or JTR25, when:

(i) In radiotelephony, the callsign used consists of the ICAO telephony designator for the operating agency followed by the flight identification, for example SPEEDBIRD 213 or HERBIE 25.

Or,

(b) The registration marking of the aircraft, for example GINFO, or EIAKO, when:

(i) In radiotelephony, the callsign used comprises the registration marking alone, for example GINFO, or is preceded by the ICAO telephony designator for the operating agency, for example SVENAIR EIAKO.

(ii) The aircraft is not equipped with radio.

Hi Dunc, pleased for you. Living only 6 miles from Culdrose and a mile from its satellite Predannack, I hanker for different things as we're so used to the Merlins, Sea Kings and Hawks, with occasional Lynx visits and infrequently Pumas.   We used to have a couple of Gazelle squadrons, but sadly lost them about 12 years ago.   Oh, for some F15s/16s/18s, A10s, Tornados or Typhoons!   Nimrods I hear on the R/T but rarely see.

Hi CoastGuardJon,
I live in Leicester and for me to get a Merlin is rare to say the least!
I currently am using only the aerial that came with the radarbox on my bedroom windowsill, but actually manage to pick up loads of C17s, C-5, C130, Kc135 and the odd Harrier and Tornado as well as F-15s.
I have finally persuaded the other half that an aerial on the roof is the way forward and all being well am buying one this week.
Hopefully i will then be able to to enjoy the exotic aircraft from the SW! :)

Post by: DaveJCotto on April 09, 2010, 11:10:58 AM
Living in Rural Lincolnshire, not far from Scampton or Waddington and getting occaisional aircraft from Coningsby I guess about 1/3 to 1/2 my aircraft on live flights are military.
I have had in the last two days Hurricane LF363 and the Dakota (C47) of the Battle of Britain Flight as well as other interesting military types including two Russian Airforce Aircraft.
We recently had the big Antonov in and out of Doncaster RobinHood as well.
Pity we can't track the military stuff better. Interestingly the Red Arrows don't have a signal when they fly and don't appear on the screen or in the log.

Something which has just occurred to me about the milair machines I see on my setup. I routinely see multiple tankers from the US military (KC10 and K35R mainly, four distinct aircraft in the past two days), but much less often any acft that would make use of them. In the same time frame (two days), 3 distinct C17s (all US Mil) and one Canforce machine with no info (C2B00D). I don't even know if C17s are set up for in-air refueling (doubt it).

I should look up C2B00D and also try to find that refueling track map I've seen on the web (maybe at milaircomms, can't recall) and see if I'm (or my box's range is) at the end of a track or something.
Title: Re: Interesting Military Aircraft
Post by: viking9 on April 11, 2010, 10:16:15 PM
C-17s and C-5s can be refuelled in-flight. Above the windscreens of these ac you can see the guide lines to help the boom operator guide the boom into the receptacle.

USAF tankers carry out AAR on almost a daily basis with various NATO aircraft around our shores and out in the Atlantic. KC-135R BLUE11 this afternoon came down the East Coast having refuelled two GAF Tornadoes on its way across the pond.

Anyone ever seen any US Army Black Hawk MH-60 helicopters? There are three of them which are stopping over at my local airport (CYBW) on a reported installation flight to Alaska - I only know this because I have taken pics of them and heard from the firefighters at the airfield (colleagues of mine; I'm a firefighter in a nearby rural area). Nothing on my RadarBox, but my location prevents me from seeing anything coming in from north and east of the airport. So I don't know if the Black Hawks are sending ModeS/ADS-B or not.

The tail numbers/CNs I found on the aircraft don't follow the usual "last two digits of year plus four-digit ID" on USAF and other US military craft. They're five digits long, with a common prefix of "24", followed by a three-digit aircraft number. The photos are available on my Flickr page at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jay911/sets/72157623725457653/

Mods, if this should be a topic of its own, apologies for the hijack and please split it off..

Hi Sandy

We also had the Antonov but you will find in time they are not too uncommon up our way. We have actually had the AN225 twice since we started on the RB.   You will also find you'll get an Emirates A380 going over you sometimes.

I know its not military but thought you'd like to know.

Thanks for the info on the Antonov and the A380. I've been looking for a A380 going over, had 4 Emirates flights but all were triple 7s. Quite interesting the amount of military flights logged, unfortunately , I've never been at computer when they were logged to see where they were. Do you get much RAF stuff down your way?

Sandy
Title: Re: Interesting Military Aircraft
Post by: orkney on May 03, 2010, 09:59:58 PM
Hi Sandy

Yes we get a fair few RAF stuff in our 'My Flights' but unfortunately hardly ever one with ADS-B.  We have had an American Navy aircraft and a few German air force with ADS-B but no UK stuff with it.

Claire
Title: Re: Interesting Military Aircraft
Post by: sasa1000 on May 03, 2010, 10:07:34 PM
The RAF can probably not afford ADS-B :) (Just Joking) Though you do wonder sometimes when you hear the stories of aircraft that are in service and the spares etc. My Polar Diagram has reached as far south as Kinloss & Lossie and covering Wick so hopefully pick up a few RAF aircraft or other forces.

Didn't get this on my RadarBox, but two Tornados from 12Sqn in Lossiemouth (if my callsign lookup went correctly) came into CYYC the other day. There is a Canadian Forces Base nearby with a detachment called BATUS (British Army Training Unit Suffield - Suffield being the CFB's name) and JACKAL11 is coming to play around in their sandbox for a bit.

JACKAL11 was the call used on the radio. I got some mediocre pics of the aircraft thru a fence at the Shell FBO here in Calgary, but I think the tail IDs were 021 and 099 or 098. EDIT: Going over the pics again, the last digit in the second one is definitely a 9.

The reason I didn't pick them up is that my RB doesn't see anything toward the Calgary airport. I'm about 30nm SW of the airport behind a hill and the supplied antenna, sitting in my computer room window, only sees things SW of me. I plan to try to put a DPD Productions antenna up later on this spring/summer on the roof of my house.

Here's 021.

If you mean details like altitude, squawk and callsign, you will normally only get those (on a military aircraft without ADS-B) if it is being interrogated by a Mode S ground radar - perhaps there is a new one operational in your neck of the woods ?

Either two different aircraft using the same Mode S Flight ID (unlikely, but possible), or an instance of the "hex code confusion" bug.

Hello

I would think" hex code confusion" would be unlikely since it normally only affects aircraft that have one or two bits different (these have 5).

AE05AA-   101011100000010110101010
AE0681-   101011100000011010000001

Also I find a lot of military (and sometimes civilian) callsigns aren't   what they should be. Whether it is a typing mistake, a 0 instead of O (loganair are bad for this)or a pilot thinking he is being funny by using something vulgar etc. so I  suppose it would be far from impossible to get two blue42s at the same time

This ac has been airtesting for weeks now. MCE4 is a Marshalls of Cambridge c/s. Ac is there for upgrade, mainly avionics. It's the third one of the fleet in, six to go.

A quick question.

There was a VC-10 doing an hour's worth of circuits at Warton this morning. I was at work nearby and took some snaps with my compact camera. My computer wasn't on, so I have no RadarBox record.

Can anyone confirm that it was ZA149, which was around when turned my computer on this afternoon?

3F9529/GAF188  ?

That callsign is almost invariably associated with a Challenger on its way across the Pond, usually with a "tactical" Mode S code, as in this case, and therefore very difficult to tie up.

I dont think it involves us (database team) as this hex had the details of the CL60's of the german air force. The software though for some reason has decided to display it as an F-15.  So I think Airnav will have to look not us.

I presume you are mentioning Saudi AF C-130 475, which I am aware has recentlu landedat Waddington It is in the databse correctly as follows

7102E2, 475, c/n 5253, Lockheed C-130H Hercules, Saudia Arabia - Air Force.  The usual blocker is in place for the photo, but I would presume that as it cant find a photo it wil go to your photo folder and take the first one with a serial of 475.

I presume you are using the old database as you are getting outdated/corrupted info.  If you deleted all reference to this and click on it next time yoiu see it you will force and update of the data held on the server.  Even better download and install the latest Navdata update from April and that will clear out all the out of data info.

HI not sure Phil he is working with a Tornado outbound from Warton. Comms clear on 370.750. Tornado just advised 13.34  they have 30 mins testing time left. Pilot of Tanker has a USA accent.

EC-335 and EC-336 are both Airbus test registrations so the c/n will determine the actual aircraft and who its ultimate user will be.

ZZ330 is c/n 1033 and I am unaware what its hex will be using that registration

I've currently got 140103, a Canadian Airforce P3 Orion to the east of the house, range about 20 miles doing search patterns at 1430 ft and ZH838, an EH101, in the hover over the sea about 3 miles to my NE.
There's also another EH101, ZH838, somewhere around here that ANRB is picking up.

It military exercise time in the Minch so there will be a few interesting things coming up on the screen this week. Just a shame there's no positional info.

I dont think they will be giving away too much info there Rod.  In theatre would be different but then they would switch off their transponder.

Not sure it is a good idea to switch off the IFF in theater.  Partriot has already shot down a Tornado.

Hi!
have one question:

do the radarbox network filter military aircraft?

so strange, i was get many alerts, and immediately "alerted" aircraft drop from network, i can not see him.

more than once, i have this result

only C130 and K35 i can see

Aircraft using Mode S will be detected by your box and will be listed.  No position data.  Network aircraft not listed.  There are a few mil aircraft with ADS-B.  Reto fitting an ADS-B box is easy but linking it to the nav system more of a problem.

The radarbox network only ADS-B equipped aircraft (those that broadcast position information and display on the map).  Your local flights will show all all mode S equipped aircraft picked up, including those that are not ADS-B equipped and consequently do not have the globe symbol on the list and do not display on the map. 

The vast majority of Mil aircraft are non ADS-B.  A few P-8, E-6, German Air Force Challengers etc being the few exceptions.  Once a non-ADS-B aircraft moves out of coverage of your local aerial, it will not transfer to network coverage.

Hi Syd,

I picked up AE094F 80-1066 and also AE094B 68-10336 up here loosing them at 1145 and 1150 respectively.

When they came down over here on Tuesday I think it was they came down over the Hebrides and the west coast of Scotland, over Prestwick and continued down to Fairford.  Given that I picked them up again I would think the went them same way in reverse to their Oceanic Entry point.

First time I’d been in a ‘plane so I remember it well and can still clearly picture how austere it was with canvas seats, bare struts and a curtain separating the cabin from the cockpit.
Spent quite a bit of time on the net trying to identify which one it was as it would complete my ‘flights log’

Two US Marine Corps C-9Bs.  Used by the USN/USMC as a troop/vip transporter.  Caught them myself, the db has them as 161529 and 161530.  The USN/USMC C-9s have been regular visitors to europe have seen them regulalry but getting rarer now that they are being replaced by the 737/C-40. 

Pure speculation but possibly supporting the USMC CV-22 deployment in Spain.

Over 2 hours ago there was a loud explosion here in Yorkshire which was followed by 2 bangs a few seconds later. The BBC have confirmed that it was a sonic boom from an RAF Typhoon.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-36188979 (http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-36188979)

At the same time as the bangs, my Radarbox had picked up the following aircraft.

* 43C492  Q0000001                 ZJ912      EUFI  UK - Air Force       2016/05/02 20:49:03

I have seen it rumoured that the "unresponsive aircraft" belonged to Air France. I also picked up this.

Hi all,

Mode S code 3EB21E. Callsign BRONCO1 received at 2500 feet final altitude (is normally the lowest receiving altitude for  a landing aircraft on my Radar for Zurich IAP when aircraft approachs from the nord. Aircraft was recorded at 10.17 AM today. Does someone know what type of aircraft that was?

Title: Re: Interesting Military Aircraft
Post by: EK01 on December 02, 2016, 09:22:07 AM

According to military Mode S, 3EB21E relates to a German AF EF-2000 with a serial number of '3061'.

Post by: Runway 31 on December 03, 2016, 10:08:36 AM
Ian/Andrew.

I would not go with that tie up as EUFI's are TACTICAL.  The tie up may well have been relevant for one particular day/flight but they changes.  Also the code is used around the fleet so may not even have been used on that type on this particular flight.  Some kind user may however be able to advise what squadron uses BRONCO as a call sign and that could help determine the details

Post by: EK01 on December 03, 2016, 02:49:17 PM
Afternoon Alan,

Glad to see you made it back safely. For the information of Rolf and others, military call signs are available here. It shows 'Bronco' as the call sign for the 31st FW based at Aviano in Italy with F-16's. Having said that, I am sure I have had that call sign also used by C130's of the USMC. So, who knows!

Doesn't help to tie up the 3EB21E code, but as Ian says the BRONCO callsign is used by USMC C130s, specifically the KC130Js" of VMGR252, USMC, at Cherry Point, N. Carolina

Title: Re: Interesting Military Aircraft
Post by: Runway 31 on January 12, 2019, 05:47:43 PM
I am presuming that you are still using your receiver when you picked it up.  In that case the Navdata holds the info on the aircraft to decode them and AE0416/164404 is in the aircraft table.  If you are not using your receiver forget it.  You asked for the info and I was advising where you can find it

For your info, the hex code is allocated to the KC-135R but is being used by both aircraft.  84-00168 should use AE116C

It did indeed land at Prestwick

F35LTNG looks like a touch and go at Yeovilton and now nearly back to Marham.

Hi,
On Saturday (07/09/19) afternoon, I was pleasantly surprised to see 2 x H64 Apache helicopters on my Radarbox24, not an aircraft I see much of in Scotland.
I was even more surprised when I saw them going over my house !
Steven.

VIPER 1 = 43C26A  ZJ213 H64 Apache.
VIPER 2 = 43C276  ZJ225 H64 Apache.
