He's just timed out from me here in Lancashire - seen him for the last 3 days.

Just out of interest, have we been seeing the almost omni-present "snooping" Islanders recently? Just wondering if there's possibly a connection...

H Terry, I don't have network and too far from my location for MyFlights.

I'm tracking it in PlanePlotter multilateration.

Update - whilst I wasn't looking he changed squawk to 7030 and last recorded alt was 2075' so I guess he has landed at Aldergrove.

Hi With thanks to Razor from another site the following.

When using RRR617-619 its usually Special Forces related (or has been in lots of previous SF exercises).
RRR673 callsign is also a tactical callsign (670-673).

Interesting.
