Hi H

It may be worth noting that hex code C2B1C5 was picked up in the Keflavik area several times between the 25th June & yesterday (04/07), and so may well be your 'missing P-3'. The hex code equates to CP-140 140104 (14 Wing/Greenwood), and whilst I'm not aware of any issues with the hex code/serial tie up, I know that some people aren't too keen on relying on Mode S data as a serial source.

That said, I understand 140104 was in the static display at Andøya show on the 24th June - so it would be perfectly reasonable to conclude that the 'hit' on the foregoing hex code from Keflavik on the 25th June, was this CP-140 arriving from Andøya to take part in 'Dynamic Mongoose'.

Best wishes,
DickFlute
