A Bit Cramped !
« on: March 07, 2009, 12:04:12 PM »
My RB is currently showing AAL113 as departing Heathrow for KMIA, and as being operated by "N7942B" - a C172 !!!

Fair old hop for one of them with 200 passengers on board.
Wonder how they'll fit in - pictues of the passengers on the wings of the A320 on the Hudson River come to mind....

It's good to smile !

Based in Hexham - Tyne Valley 
Best view for RB is North of a line between EGNT and EGNC  - includes OTA and Spade, to EGPH above 7500ft.   Can be TRUE mobile with Mobile Broadband feed to Network.

Funny thing, I just had exactly the same thing, different aircraft though.
Box reported a c172 (OK-TEC) at 37000ft with a gs of 445 from LKPR-ENGM.

As before, check the mode S code with airframes or GAS. Another case of short-sighted pilots putting in incorrect details.

Cheers,

No - it's simply a tie-up that's incorrect, nothing to do with what the crew has or hasn't done.
