Funny or Unusual Flight IDs
« on: August 22, 2009, 09:09:25 PM »
I've been noticing a few lately, generally on biz jets.  Post what you've seen.

The first odd one I noticed was USAF C-130  85-1361  MANLV32          


This week I've seen:   
N487LP   OTISSUX
N86CW   WEBEROLN 'We be rolling'
N6757M    HELLO76   
N389QS    NO2OBAMA 
N457JC  HELLO

I suspect these are more common in the US than over here, where Eurocontrol have been having a bit of a clampdown on non-standard callsigns...

Got a crude one today. Not surprisingly it's a US Marine Corps bird. C-130 164598 displaying DOGPENIS.

Currently in the air, a bunch of military pilots obviously more used to playing video games

I've seen this a few days ago near Faro, Portugal: An B752 from Air Finland with the funny LOSLOCOS flight ID.

Today, the FAA's G-IV N1 first time displaying an id other than 00000000 or nothing at all, displayed GULFFOUR
American Eagle E135s N837AE and N856AE both displayed DONTUSE

On Friday an A-10 flew into KIAD to be part of a static display.  He programmed his with F16SUCK.  I asked him about it on Saturday.  Also got to tie up that hex code with a tail #,

Now.  Flight ID: GAF218
ModeS: 3FB853
not on databases
been tracking over northern France.

I thought it was landing at Yeovilton, but still heading NE.

What is it?

The fact that you can see it on the map strongly suggests it's a Challenger with yet another new code.

I'm rather new at this.  I was about to suggest that it was a heli as it did a 180 deg. turn.

It has now gone from the display, but did display what looked like a German cross in the flag column.

It arrived from France east of Exeter, then NE towards Yeovilton, but turning right to miss Lyneham.  South of Fairford did the 180 deg. turn.

It was then shown as taking off.  Last LL: 51 29.9 -002 02.8

Did it disappear as it landed at Lyneham, as it approached the runway at almost 90deg. ???

While typing, I've just experienced my first Army Apache fly over my house while AirNav has been running.  Just why I bought it.  Now to get an early warning set-up.
