Airbus Unknown
« on: June 19, 2009, 01:52:32 PM »
Hi, catched today at FL400 hex code 38531B with callsign AIB356 over Alicante, then overflying Ibiza and go back again to Alicante heading to the south of Spain, maybe to the EADS CASA factory in Sevilla??.

EDIT: Now turning north on the way to Madrid, maybe to Getafe Airbase EADS Military. You can see now on the Radarbox Screen Northwest Alicante Airport.

I tried search on GAS and airframes and no results for that.

Anyone can help??

Thanks!!!

Hi Carras320,
It has been suggested on the mode-s forum that it may be EC-334 Airbus A330-203MRTT cn 969 for the Aussie Air Force but this is unconfirmed.

Wasn't EC-334 using 3432D9, c/s CASA334 ?

Edit:  given the callsign AIB356, my money would be on F-WBGX A319 3356, which was returned to Airbus 3 months ago.

Has the code been allocated or is it a flight test code?

French hex codes ending with A, B, C, D, E or F, preceded by an odd hex digit, are associated with F-Wxxx registrations, which are normally temporary or manufacturer test registrations.
