Brize Norton 11/01/2017

Postby rh226 » Wed Jan 11, 2017 4:20 pm

If anyone was at Brize today, would they please tell me which Voyager operated "RRR2200" departing at 14.50Z......eyeball report only, please.

Also, which one did "RRR2154" departing at 10.27Z....again, eyeball report, please.

Reason for this request is that SBS/PP/ADS-B all showed both flights as being operated by ZZ337 [43C6FA]....so we have a mis-coded box out there.

Cheers,

Bob

Is there any reason that ZZ337 couldn't have landed after its morning flight, then departed later using the same call-sign?

I'm afraid that three things rule that out, TM74.

1.) It couldn't have got back from the Med in time to be turned around ready for the second flight;
2.) Albert's website had no trace of it returning; and
3.) Visual over GOW this afternoon thought it was white rather than grey.

Looking at FR24 currently RRR2155 is currently being flown by ZZ335

So it looks like ZZ335 (43C6F8) flew out as RRR2154

and ZZ337 (43C6FA) is currently flying as RRR2200

Information received privately confirms that, Al.

Bit of a nuisance with the doubled-up hex though!! :lol:
