Out of interest, was it tracking? What callsign did it use over r/t?

Heard something this afternoon, but couldn't see anything on ADSB that corresponded to a fast mover.

I couldn't see it on ping but calling as EXPERT 42 ( or maybe EXPORT 42 ) on the box.

Don't suppose anyone's managed to ID any of these yet please? I recall the serial is only present on the data block on one side of the cockpit?!
I should probably change my name to EGCC again.

Hi

The T50 operates Mode A only.

Usually uses the Mode 3A sqwk 6401 as allocated by ATC and can be tracked using PlanePlotter

Were they carrying out a display practice? Seems odd they don't have any notams in place.
