I'd also be interested in whether the aircraft departed and returned under the same callsign. The callsigns come from the operati...

Can anyone confirm whether today’s mission was calling Lotto 01 or Lotto 02 on RT it please?
See my post above. You know the source. Question answered.
If the source is CFMU then the question has not been answered. I asked what the aircraft was heard calling via radio transmission.

Was GAF896 visually confirmed as an A340? 360Radar seems to have it as A319 15+03 for some reason.
