ModeS hex code 738A57
« on: August 21, 2010, 01:16:33 PM »
Anyone got any details on hex code 738A57?  Currently over Inverness (if PP MLAT is to be believed).

EDIT: Thought to be an Israeli T-6A Texan II according to http://www.live-military-mode-s.eu/

EDIT: Whatever it is, now descending north of Glasgow.



EDIT: Now confirmed (on SCOTAVNET) as an Israeli T-6A:

Hi Chris it is an Israeli Air Force Beech T-6 Texan II serial 473 which landed at Glasgow and is staying until Monday morning before departure to Caen.  Just back from seeing it.

I didnt but it is mostly white with some red.  It was early landing and by the time I got there it was already parked and was tail on.  Hopefully I will get out on Monday morning for its departure.

At the risk of being picky it's not, as per the database, a Beech T-6 Texan 2 - it's a Beech T-6A Texan II.

MSN is PI-1, by the way.

Edit:  It's not a C-130 or a MiG-21, either, despite the thumbnails :-)

Cheers Dave, not picky at all,  the c/n wasnt available to me and the pics attached themselves.  I have XXXXX'd them out but whether it will stay that was is another matter.

I beleive it may well not be going to Caen now as it is closed.
