Strange flight!
« on: February 04, 2009, 12:27:07 PM »
Picked up the following today, what made me curious was that the flight reg was showing as 'bogus'.  Anyone have any info on the aircraft below:

Mode S:  29CBB8
ID:  GOTO FMS
REG:  BOGUS
SQUAWK:  7737

Thanks,
Mark

This from http://www.airframes.org/

Sending bogus ICAO24 address 29CBB8 on mode-S. Translates to 12345670 octal. Several a/c using this -- seen 165159 and 165163 so far.

With the GOTO FMS Flight ID, it's almost certainly one of the E6 aircraft, however, as tarbat says, that Hex code doesn't show as such.
