It would be good, but unfortunately my time for trips like that are now over.

Got a more sedate job now, teaching!!! ;-)

There appears to be somebody on from Colombia tonight. Appears to be centred around SKGY - Guaymaral.

Ian - thanks for that - I seem to have missed that action from there this evening - perhaps it's Perezoso, who's based near SKBO - haven't seen much from him recently.

Dev - good news - we might get some interesting new stuff from Angola including, presumabl,y Europe-South Africa overflights.

Rod,

He wasn't on for very long. In fact, as soon as I had sent the info, the signal disappeared. Maybe a dodgy location !

Yes, but they're all RAF, and without broadcasting location, they won't appear on the network :-(

The RAF have been using Globlespan to send troops from RAF Brize Norton via Ascension Island to the Falklands.  so will their planes show up or do they have to switch off their transponers when carrying out work for the mod?

I know Globlespan advertised my dream Job 1 month on and and 1 month off based on Ascension Island I could have been asked to rate cabin & pilot's  and may have had to travel to the Falkands

But the job offered had closed by the time I read it just my luck

We did have a report that a Globespan plane had been spotted on the network actually at Ascension Island, but as far as I know, that was a one-off. Either the RB user was just passing through, or whether FlyGlobespan normally do switch off position reporting when not in civvy skies, I really don't know.

The Ascension/Falklands flights (GSM8510/8511 & RRR3321) are usually operated by GSM B763 G-CEFG.  It has come up on the network on at least half a dozen occasions from the South Atlantic.

AFAIK, it broadcasts ADS-B all the way, in fact I don't think there is any provision for switching it off other than pulling the CBs on the transponder (which would then disable TCAS) or turning off the GPS (also not a good idea).

I have a mate who is departing to southern places in the next couple of weeks. I have been trying to convince him of the vrtues of this great piece of kit, and I am sure with a little push he may jump and buy.

Now just to convince him that he needs to take it down south, when he has bought it.

Not sure what networking facilities are down at MPA these days though?

First time I've seen returns from Panama - watching COA788 on finals to MPTO Tocumen International.
