A bear is the name given to the back seater in a Wild Weasel (anti-SAM site) aircraft.

I wonder if the bear entered the flight ID himself...

I am not certain, but usually tasks of that nature are the responsibility of the back seater. I don't know if the transponder can be programmed from the front cockpit.

And I thought a "bear" in the air was Police in a helio. (or a Russian Tupolev) !

Been up and running for about 3 weeks now - lost a load of interesting stuff when I upgraded from v2.01 to V3.06 and then v3.07...!

Just find this thread, so submit the following recorded over the Midlands over the last fortnight. A bit dated now and nothing special:

I'm new to all this - am guessing TARTN codes are dedicated to RAF flights.
