I know there is a fellow on Vancouver Island with an SBS-1 who regularly logs
Boeing test flights. I believe there is a Radarbox in the Seattle area also.

Looks like 1st Flight will be somewhere around June 20th to 24th.

My money is on the 30th - heads will roll at Boeing if it doesn't happen in the first half of 2009 ...

Have to agree, Airbus is certainly showing them a clean pair of heels at the moment.

Hi;
  I am a new RB owner on Vancouver Island and I have regularly been getting the Boeing test flights. There is one on the screen from Pegasus Airlines now.  I have been posting my logs to the Mode_S Yahoo group.  Am waiting for a better antenna to clear customs.

Quite so.  Incidentally, has anyone in the Cambridge area picked up the TP400 flying testbed ? (C-130 XV208, no idea what its Mode S code is)

Morning Dave!

Nice picture here, looks like it is still wearing XV208 -difficult to read, but looks about right.  No idea about the Mode S code though.

Hi;
  I am a new RB owner on Vancouver Island
Where on the Island, Speedwagon?

I'm over in North Delta. I would buy a Radarbox tomorrow but I have a "wall"
of 150' cedar trees blocking about 200 degrees of coverage. :-(

Great opportunity for Airnav. With each RB sold, you get a free chainsaw :-)

Victoria, just a couple Km north of downtown.  I have mountains to the north and west and with my current discone rarely get comings and goings from Victoria Int.

Yes it is - at least that's what Boeing called it - but it's bit of a nightmare until it's been delivered and the airline compensation claims are out of the way, though :-¦
