Fri 10/05/19 cont/d

ZK439/BS155 on PFAT1 flown by "WTN69".
T/o 1455L approx off rwy07; Landed back around 1545L approx (following SRA/Talkdown to rwy 07 with no "attack" on airfield target or usual u/c up approach, normally flown on first flt). PAN called at 1520L due to flt refuelling probe being stuck out! Problem resolved and didn't return early as a result.
Thanks to TARGET for info in my absence!!
Checked Mode-S logs and no sign of a hexcode belonging to it (BS154 is hex 43C7AF).

Cheers
