Hints and tips all about planefagging to be put here.

95f0ec No.1311882

Getting Started with Planefagging

Useful web sites:

ADS-B Exchange - learn how to use the filters

Radarbox - flight scanning

Flightaware - very useful for flight histories and arrivals lists

Flightradar24 - flight scanning

You also need to be able to spot unusual patterns, things that 'don't look right' against the backdrop. It's a skill you can develop and eventually you develop a 'usual suspects list' that KAF R1 has that we watch.

German Air Force (Luftwaffe), Swiss Air Force and French Air Farce aren't to be trusted. 2-reg planes are 'wheelmen' for the wealthy, such as Soros as they can't travel via normal routes. 2-reg planes are 'military' and can bypass some customs checks (hint).

ATC Live can be useful if you know a happening is going on around an airport. Listening to the Tower can provide insight.

Anything else, just ask. Kekistan Recon 1 can always use new recruits.

More Planefagging Stuff

Helicopters (helos) - groups of helos, particularly Medevac or Mercy Flight ones, should attract attention. This may indicate arrests or renditions, as Q etc. won't use military helos for that as a Black Hawk gets the wrong sort of attention and freaks the straights. Someone from a Medevac helo that "Wants to take you to a place of safety" doesn't attract so much suspicion.

Tankers, Poseidons, Nightwatches and Mercurys all mean something military is going on. Fighters don't usually squawk on ADS-B, they only have IFF (although an F-15 called DARK21 did squawk in the UK a few times around Christmas). Remember, you only get to see what they want you to see.

It's all in the patterns and follow your instincts. If you think it's post-worthy, put it up and your squadron colleagues will assist and guide you.

It is useful to get some idea of what events have occurred or might be occurring around the world generally such as a terror attack or something in the news to give context to your search.

I normally do a quick check on the notables at the top of the bread and one or more the following sites to get an idea of what's happened that day or is happening at the time before checking the flight trackers.

Global Incident Map - http://www.globalincidentmap.com

Liveuamap - https://liveuamap.com

or

Military Maps - https://militarymaps.info

If I spot any strange air activity I cross check back to these, the breads, or news sites etc to check whether my spotting is relevant.

Things to try

→Open ADSB in its own browser (not a tab). I put mine in a different Linux workspace so I can easily switch between planefagging and the board with one key combination.

→Open multiple copies of ADSB in different tabs to watch different locations.

→Zoom to the entire USA and count the number of MIL flights listed; compare with 'normal' for the day of the week and time of day.

→Sort ADSB table by Flag and look for foreign flights, or an unusual number of USMC in the air other than around a Marine base.

→Sort by Silhouette and notice helicopers in unusual places or clustered. Notice unusual kinds of aircraft like Ospreys, Fighter Jets, Refuelling Tankers, Drones (UAVs), Balloons (rare), U2.

→Sort by Registration and look for 02-xxxx

→Sort by Callsign and look for MAGMAxx which is JSOC, usually of interest. Other callsigns also sometimes indicate the nature of the mission.

→Sort by speed and look for planes going unusually fast (>500 kn) or unusually slow.

→Sort by altitude and look for planes flying over 40,000' which would tend to indicate they are in a hurry and avoiding civilian air traffic which generally flies lower.

→If your browser doesn't crash when you try this, on the ADSB Menu, Aircraft tab, select "tails for all aircraft". Then zoom out and look for interesting patterns.

→If you notice someone circling or flying surveillance patterns, zoom in and see what it is.

→Screencap very frequently - you never know when something interesting is going to drop off the map. I use Shutter on Linux for screencaps.

→Learn where the US military bases are and what kinds of aircraft activities are normal in their vicinity.

→Helicopters that have been in the air for a long time are interesting, as are those continuously circling at low altitude.

→Learn the different kinds of planes and their typical missions.

→Pick one area of the world to concentrate on, and become very familiar with what is typical there.

Thoughts from a semi-novice planefag, still learning.

What sort of filters do you use? I'm currently just tracking military. Any others.

My current focus is Military (filter) only, US only. I'll switch to Caribbean or Europe or Asia if asked to continue someone else's monitoring but don't feel that I have a handle on anywhere else in the world yet.

It would be nice to have a filter capability for MIL #OR# ___ but the ADSB filters seem to be #AND# only, i.e. more restrictive as you add more filters.

Just learned (thankQ Red Arrow) that in ADSB you can click on Flight History if you need to know where a plane you are following has been.

Flightradar24.com, adsbexchange.com, and Planefinder.net ALL filter the data. Adsb says they don't, but they do.

If you really want to know what's going on in the skies, you have to set up your own radar. You can do it for under $100.

https://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/

The real planes to watch are the outsourced DOJ contractors. Look up Sam Richards + FBI Sky Spies if you need to catch up. Cliff Notes…The FBI, DEA, + others set up fake companies to register their planes. They have publicly admitted this (after getting caught).

Deep State Air Fleet is the real story.

You won't see any aircraft that doesn't want to be seen on flightradar24 + adsbexchange.

More shared experience.

Tracking Planes

I use Flightaware to track aircraft that are obviously of interest or are on long-haul flights, as it provides better tracking of flights when the ADS-B ping drops off over the coast, or over remote areas where there are no ADS-B transponders..

ADS-B Exchange will just show the end of the trail, whereas Fkightaware will attempt to give you an estimated track until a new ping is heard. Leaving the window open will also allow you to monitor Flightaware for when the ping returns.

Flightradar allows you to select a 'species' of plane (such as helicopter), or a specific type of plane. Executive jets of interest are Cessna Citations, Learjets, Dassault Falcons and similar, particularly if they aren't showing a call sign or may show 'Blocked' on Flightradar. The FBI and other law enforcement agencies may charter these types of planes and if you see two in formation with 'Blocked' call signs, this may be an escorted flight. It's worth comparing Radarbox to Flightradar to ensure that you aren't just picking up an ADS-B echo though, we've seen this happen.

Executive jets associated with big money (e.g. banks and trustees) are also of interest, particularly since the Wells Fargo exec was sucked out of that plane and killed. Planes are leased and mortgaged and banks/trustees have an interest in this market.

Flight History

For some aircraft of interest, It's worth downloading the flight log. Flightaware and ADS-B Exchange, along with ADS-B.nl for military planes, are invaluable for this. Retaining the history allows us to go back in the future and compare what we saw with actual events.

Screenshots

Any aircraft of interest should be 'tagged and bagged' with a screenshot. I use Paint, but any simple graphics that you can cut and paste into is good enough. Please mark any targets or destinations of interest on your screenshot and provide some context as to why this was interesting to you.

Why aren't some Air Forces trustworthy?

This is a bugbear of mine. I've seen too much of the French Air Farce, the Swiss and the Germans sneaking off to unusual places such as Argentina, Kazakhstan and the like. ASsk yourself why do the Swiss need an air force? SImple answer is that they don't, as they remain neutral in wars, but they do need the military facility to bypass Customs and Immigration, in a way similar to the 2-reg planes.

Routine Flights

As you watch the skies, you'll start to see regular patterns. The British, Qataris, German, Belgian and French Air Forces regularly fly to the US and they participate in training exercises.

=Very Unusual Planes==

From time to time, you'll see Israeli Kafirs, Hawker Hunters and even MiG-21s over the US. These are used by ATAC and are also used ij Top Gun exercises to allow fighter pilots to gain experience in jets with different abilities. Don't panic if you see them!1

Spoopy Activity

Any planes that have to 'Go Around' or that may have been diverted/refused landing permission are very interesting, as these may indicate a happening. Tag and bag these for future reference.

Some planes may also try to keep flying below 4000ft as this may cause ASDS-B to fall off. I have personal experience of seeing 2-reg planes do this and it sticks out a mile. Always tag and bag these.

Squawks

On ADS-B exchange, you may see a plane 'squawk' 7600, 7770 or similar. These indicate an emergency and should be monitored, although some pilots manage to squawk 7700 while they are still setting the plane up on the tarmac.

Drones and UAVs

Drones and UAVs always indicate military activity. PIZZA13 was one drone that captured our attention at the time certain other events related to pizza were going on. If you see a UAV, screenshot it as it indicates that events are being monitored by the military. You may also see P-8 Poseidons, P-3 Orions, along with other surveillance and intel gathering planes such as Sentrys, Nightwatches, Sentinels, Joint Rivets, AWACS, Hawkeyes and Mercurys. Always worth screenshotting these.

>>1313825

It doesn't generate too much curiosity in me but it depends on the context of what is/was happening around that area at the time.

The French Air Force like the RAF & USAF has worldwide commitments & fly regular supply flights to their various overseas territories.

That being said it is a little unusual to catch two aircraft this close together so far from home.

Similar types of aircraft belonging to various Mid-East countries seem to have increased their activities to & from the US & they are worth keeping an eye on.

Keep an eye on the news around the world & what is happening in the breads & then make a call as to whether you feel it is relevant.


9ec17c No.1317922

Squawks

You will sometimes see aircraft flagged up in the lists in red with a squawk code of 7500, 7600, or 7700.

Don't panic & over react when you see one usually it is operator error or the controller has requested that they use one of these codes to more easily identify the aircraft on a cluttered radar screen.

Sometimes the codes are used to give the controllers some practice of handling an emergency - I have seen single/two seat fighter or trainer aircraft using the 7500-hijack code.

The most common code is 7600 as aircraft are handed off from one control area to another they change to the wrong frequency & can't talk to who they need to talk to so to alert the local controller they use the 7600 code & listen out on the emergency frequency until the controller establishes contact.

The 7700 code is for genuine emergencies such as engine failure or bird strike etc. Sometimes airliners use this when they have miscalculated their fuel consumption, needed to divert to another airport & need priority for landing.

The codes have specific meanings -

7500 – Hijack

7600 – Lost Comms (radio failure)

7700 – Emergency

I can see where you are coming from with regard to colonial commitments (e.g. the French with Senegal etc.), however, seeing the Netherlands, German, French and Belgian air forces all landing at Buenos Aires isn't normal.

Similarly, anything that the Swiss Air Force exec jets (SUI001, SUI003 etc.) are up to isn't normal.

On Flightradar, selecting CL for Cessna and LJ for Learjet or FA for Falcon in the aircraft filter will make it easier to spot exec jets.

It generally means that there is no accurate fix, or that the plane is not transmitting it's ADS-B squawk ID or callsign correctly. It's a tag for incomplete data.


9ec17c No.1330484

OPSEC

When you spot a cluster of unusual activity, such as a bunch of helos or recon aircraft orbiting an area consider the operational security aspect.

These aircraft might be engaged on an active operation with boots on the ground and we don't want to put special operators at risk.

It is better to bag and tag what you find and post it later to allow the special operators time to complete their mission.


9ec17c No.1330706

Clarity

Try not to post screen captures with half a gazillion overlapping tracks.

Just show the tracks of the relevant aircraft.

Adjust the zoom/cropping of the capture so that it is evident where the aircraft is and what it is doing.

On ADS-B scroll through the data list select & highlight the relevant aircraft so that its details are visible on the capture.

If necessary post two or more captures with one zoomed in close and the other zoomed out.

If you have an interesting group of aircraft or cluster of activity zoom in or out to capture the whole cluster highlighting aircraft & tracks as well as posting the individual aircraft.

Add a simple short explanation of what you have captured.

Try not to fill the post with a rambling wall of words.


9ec17c No.1331035

Keep Calm Don't Panic

Sometimes events happen & other non-planefag anons start freaking out but don't let this panic you.

Usually this is an event such as a shooting, air attack, or air crash or something similar.

Try to ascertain what is happening and where to focus your search & then try to capture anything relevant.

Do try to keep those that tend towards panic reassured & informed about what you find & what is happening.

Sometimes you will find that you are trying to track multiple aircraft widely dispersed around the world.

Sometimes the aircraft you are trying to track plays hard to get or the trackers start acting up making thing difficult for you.

If this happens don't be afraid to put a call out to the other planefags for assistance tracking.

Beware of random aircraft shills

Sometimes shills try to deflect your attention by asking you about some random aircraft and ask if you know anything about it.

Generally they don't know what the aircraft was or when they saw it.

They will say something like 'I saw a strange plane acting in a strange way in some obscure location on an unspecified date' and then expect you to know what it was all about.

It can be an interesting way to waste half a day if you are bored but generally it leads nowhere.

Thanks to all of you - the pros.

A screen cap of a previous date. I didn't post it on that date b/c some wise person (you?) said don't post screen shots if it might endanger the mission.

Would this screen shot endanger a mission?

>>1331238

Nothing I see there would cause problems. Norfolk Virginia area is quite busy for recon aircraft primarily Navy P-3 & P-8s.

I was primarily warning about clusters of helos or groups of recon aircraft working close together.

Clusters of helos operating close to or over urban areas or outside normal training areas/bases would sound some alarms as would clusters operating close to the Mexican border.

Sometimes there will be one of the larger recon aircraft (EC-130 or RC-135) and several smaller aircraft (usually RC/MC-12) working a search pattern.

The large aircraft in a medium/high orbit and the others slightly lower in orbits with different orientations (east/west & north/south for instance) this allows them to pinpoint the location of whatever they are interested in.

If you click on the aircraft you are interested in it will show its track and allow you to see where it has been and what it is up to.

Try to match it with news events what is being discussed in the breads at the time to judge its relevance/importance.

Ultimately use your best judgement at the time but err on the side of caution if in any doubt. If in doubt capture the activity and watch until the aircraft leave the area they are operating in and then post.

Main areas for the P-8 & P-3 operations & training are off the coasts of Virginia, Florida, the gulf around Pensacola, California, and around Seattle. Army RC/MC-12 are also often seen in the training areas near Yuma Arizona close to the border.

Sometimes you will see a cluster of aircraft in the middle of the Gulf of Guinea off Africa.

There is nothing odd about this it is just that if the aircraft doesn't update its location correctly the system defaults to 0N, 0W latitude longitude coordinates.

This is where the Greenwich meridian crosses the equator.

ATAC

ATAC the Airborne Tactical Advantage Company - is a company owned by Textron that provides training solutions for the military.

Basically they provide targets for the various branches of the military to practise there tactics on in a safe way.

These aircraft operate out of and around the following areas primarily (see map highlighted orange) although they can be found almost anywhere if they are needed by the military -

Point Mugu California, the training bases/areas around Las Vegas Nevada, the Gulf of Mexico from Texas to Florida, the East coast of Florida up to the Norfolk Virginia area.

The operate a variety of aircraft the F-21 Kfir, Hawker Hunter, & L39 Albatross.

Whilst they can be fun to watch when things are quiet they are not of any importance to our task.

OMEGA

Omega is a company that provides aerial refuelling tankers for the military on a contract basis.

Most of their work is to do with training & supporting military exercises.

Mostly they are to be found around Southern California & just off the coast.

These aircraft have nothing to do with chemtrails or weather modification.

They use Boeing 707 and DC-10 aircraft roughly equivalent to the KC-135 & KC-10 used by the USAF.

As with ATAC the Omega aircraft can be found almost anywhere they are needed by the military.

As with ATAC Omega has nothing to do with our task.

>>1359850

The shot on the left looks pretty typical and normal number and variety of aircraft.

The map on the right is not too unusual either, many of those incidents are round-ups of MS-13 & terror suspects.

Some will false alarms maybe kids who want a day off school & file a false report etc.

Some will be where concerned citizens have in good faith filed a report about something they think suspicious that turns out to be a false alarm but needed to be checked.

Also notice that many of those markers are in the DNC strongholds and indicate where you should look for spoopy air activity.

Very little of those markers gets any sort of attention in the MSM.

Use that info to enlighten the normies about what is really happening.


9ec17c No.1372805

Posting Captures

When posting captures try to keep them clean and easily read.

Highlight just the aircraft of interest preferably with a track trail so that its activity can be discerned.

Capture the details of the flight data - showing aircraft type, callsign, registration etc.

If need be edit with arrows or markers to highlight the details of the flight or other info.

Avoid heavily cluttered screens and multiple tracks where possible.

If necessary post two or more captures one showing the complete flight and others zoomed in to show more detail.

Add a short description about the flight avoiding a large wall of words.

All that is really necessary is the identity of the flight, its start finish locations, whether it is relevant to global events, stuff in the breads, or in the news etc.

Digging for info

If the skies are quiet dig around for info about some of the spoopy planes in the notables these are mainly the 2-#### aircraft.

Digging is as important as the tracking.

We need to find if they are connected to (((them))) the (((deep state))) etc.

If you find relevant info linking the planes to what is happening post it in the research bread.

If the info is not apparently relevant save it on your computer rather than post it in the bread because it might become relevant later.

Recently someone requested for planefags to dig for info into a flight into Bushehr Iran last year that subsequently to a 'Q' post and details about the Uranium 1 deal.

Use lateral thinking when digging not just flight tracking stuff.

Riddle me this; what's wrong with this picture and why would this air force need one of these?

Answer - it's an FA/18 Hornet and the Swiss have no aircraft carriers, for obvious reasons… their early attempts were not very successful…


9ec17c No.1375343

>>1375133

They needed new fighters in the 1980s to replace the Hawker Hunters & Northrop F5s that dated back to the 50's & 60's. Aircraft needed to have good short takeoff/landing performance & be a capable multirole airplane, F-18 fitted the bill & ticked the boxes.

Canada & Spanish air force have them too & operate them purely from land.

Just love the Swiss carrier.

Clogging the Bread

When things are habbening and the bread is busy try to avoid posting unless it is vital.

Many thing get buried when people shit up the bread with unnecessary stuff.

If you are tracking multiple aircraft wait a while and then post all the updates in one post.

Updating the Anons

Remember we are the 1st Recon Squadron & recon is our purpose.

When tracking I periodically check for global incidents using a number of sites see for links- >>1312191

If you spot something of particular relevance don't be afraid to post a general SITREP report to help keep the other anons aware of what is happening it might well be relevant to their digging.

The anons & concernfags sometimes pick-up on an alarmist tweet or news report & can tend to overreact.

If this happens check out the live threat maps to see if you can shed more light on the situation.

Occasionally if they start getting panicky or concerned an anon will ask us if we know anything about the situation - in this event try to be obliging and give them what raw facts you can find n the threat assessment sites.

Report what you see and not what you think is happening.


4507f4 No.1387975

>>1351968

Yes. There is a certain shill that points this out from time to time, trying to send anons on a wild goose chase. They assert that this location is a "teleport" from a north pole location. When that happens don't chase it and help other anons understand they should not waste their time digging/chasing it either. I have screen caps of the first few times this a-hole started trying to distract anons and have successfully quashed him every time since.


4507f4 No.1388003

>>1359850

I have seen typically about 110-130 military aircraft over continental US (CONUS) during daylight hours on a weekday. Presumably for training + exercises. Become familiar with what is a normal number at certain times of day/week and watch for variations from normal.

Hey Planefags,

Did you catch any fighters over Leafland last night.

Multiple set's were in/out/training last night around from 10pm - 1am central. Not normal at all, has never happened before.

Would F22's heading back to the mainland US cut across Canada in a hurry from Alaska?

Had C130 Practising dropping runs last month too.

We are not a military city and have never, ever had training before.

Had multiple fighter pairs come over/through my province last night between 10AM and 1PM in leafland.

Totally unheard of, not a stop for fuel/training ever.

The were likely Hornets, but could have been your F22's getting Aerial refuelling on the way back to mainland US from Alaska?

There was also a C130 doing dropping runs about a month ago.

Totally unheard of.

Reference Documents

These are aircraft rtegistries for Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. There are approx. 1200 aircraft in here that have magically been granted 'Military' status by being registered in these islands.

These islands are also self-governing, to an extent. These registers are highly dig-worthy for finding out who is into Global scale money laundering and Do-Baddery.


20b18d No.1742818

>>1681105

Impossible to identify the aircraft. The bright white lights are high intensity strobes intended to make the aircraft easier to spot in poor visibility.


20b18d No.1742850

>>1692972

>>1692992

It is quite common for aircraft to be listed on the trackers as 'blocked'.

This does not imply that there is anything strange or unusual about the aircraft.

Sometimes the tracking systems don't pick up or refresh correctly so some details might come up wrong or indicate 'blocked'.

Two aircraft flying close together along a route is quite normal and as most jet aircraft cruise at approximately the same speed it can look like one is being escorted when it is not.

The two planes may actually be separated by several thousand feet of altitude.

They may actually fly in 'formation' for hundreds or thousands of miles.


20b18d No.1742931

TRACKING DIFFICULT TARGETS

Sometimes a plane can be difficult and very uncooperative to track.

This is particularly so with the spoopy 2-#### planes, JSOC planes, and some other mainly military stuff.

In certain regions around the world such as Africa, Middle East, Caspian Sea, Oceanic areas & other remote areas/places tracking coverage can be non-existent, patchy, or unreliable.

To mitigate the problem slightly what you can do when tracking a problem plane is to watch and monitor other nearby aircraft travelling in the same speed/direction.

By following these other aircraft you can estimate the position of the 'missing' or 'uncooperative' aircraft.

If a flight plan is listed for the aircraft you can use this to plot the course & position & estimate where it might pop up again.

Often an aircraft will drop off one tracker system but will still show on another so try using an alternative tracker or two trackers at once.

2-#### PLANES

These aircraft are a bit of a bug bear with there spoopy behaviour.

It would help a lot if you can try and dig into the backgrounds of these aircraft.

There are download lists here - >>1731158

So far we have only managed to scratch one off the list. This guy -

2-MAPP

As far as we can tell he is all above board.

The captured flight profile shows a typical photomapping profile. The figure eight loops along his journey are where he has carried out a wind drift check to calculate wind speed & direction.

The zigzag part of the flight is where he is carrying out the mapping part of the flight gathering images/data to be put into maps or to be used for scientific study etc.

As we are pretty confident this guy is on the up & up there is no reason to track/capture this guy unless you spot him doing something odd that doesn't look like a recce/mapping profile.

A Planefag asked more eyes for Europe, so here's what I've been looking. I'm new in this, so decided to ask here first, if this is spoopy or not?

Cobham Aviation Services, United Kingdom

I've seen them flying around during past few weeks. Under UK Military.

http://www.cobhaminvestors.com/shareholder-information/advisors-and-registrars

http://www.cobhaminvestors.com/shareholder-information/major-shareholders

Financial Advisors: Bank of America Merrill Lynch and N M Rothschild & Sons Limited(!)

Major shareholders BlackRock, Inc.

where among Board of directors: Cheryl Mills (Hillary's buddies)

http://ir.blackrock.com/board-of-directors

They (Cobham) feel need to promote in their website, that they are against "Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking".

Maybe it is just a fashionable "IN" thing of 2018. But made me instantly "Think Mirror".

They fly curious zigzagging routes above sea or land, mostly in UK.

And they provide services for Space, too.


ce5104 No.1798146

>>1796182

Cobham use the aircraft you captured to provide training for the UK military.

The designation Falcon 20EW indicates it is an electronic warfare aircraft as can be seen by the underwing electronic jamming chaff/flare dispenser pods.

They basically act as an target primarily for the air force and navy.

Often these Falcon jets will be seen accompanied by one or more Hawk or similar jet trainers that simulate sea skimming missiles for the navy.

This is along the same lines as ATAC in the US providing similar support.

Originally the were known as Flight Refuelling Limited (FRL).

Many countries use similar private enterprise organisations to provide training on an as needed basis.

Check wiki.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cobham_plc

Because a business has some dodgy suspect companies or dodgy individuals as shareholders or bankers/financial advisor does not necessarily make the business dodgy.

The Rothschilds own or control just about every major financial services & banking organisation in the world, so to find them listed as having some link to the company is not surprising.

K, so OCD got the better and I had to log the Silkway Cargo planes from YT. Here's what I have for the last month or so.

VP-BCR - Schipol - 23 May 18

EC-MJS - Dhaka - 21 May 18

VQ-BWY - Montreal - 4 Jun 18

VQ-BVC - Kansai - 16 Jun 18

RA-76511 (also marked as EW-583TH) - Doncaster - 11 Jun 18

4K - A260 - Belgrade - 9 Jun 18

4k - SW008 - Komatsu - 2 Jun 18

From the Silkway website I gleaned the following tail numbers.

I-SWIA, VQ-BVB, 4k - SW800, RA- 86563,

Locating a plane that isn't on the map using latitude + longitude.

Open maps.google.com

In the search bar paste the latitude + longitude from ADSB. (Delete the words but keep the degrees). Like so:

46.01642° 26.36403°

Comma separator works but is optional

Negative longitude is parsed correctly as west longitude. If your lat/long includes E or W Google maps can parse that as well.

Google maps can parse latitude and longitude in various formats including degrees/minutes/seconds, decimal degrees, etc.

Hit enter and locate your aircraft.

Question on AF1

I noticed the other day when to and from Vegas that it flew around 26,000'. Is that normal for AF1? Seems low for such a long flight for a 747.

Thank you.


52b517 No.1962294

>>1962168

It might have been routed at that altitude to deconflict with other aircraft.

AF1 and other aircraft carrying heads of state usually have a security vertical altitude & lateral distance 'bubble' around them that other aircraft are not permitted to enter.

With AF1 & other high value targets they might've tweeked the ADSB tracker system to give a false height or position for security reasons.

Potus tweeted recently about having 'problems' with ADSB tracker recording height & other details correctly.

Planefag cadet, welcome on board. Our coverage is thin at times and your presence makes a difference.

Salute o7

Here's my short list of "when to tag and bag" gleaned from the experience of our squad leaders.

What to Tag and Bag

Diverted/refused landing permission

Keeps flying <4000ft

Any drones and UAVs

Any P-8 Poseidons, P-3 Orions, other surveillance and intel planes such as Sentrys, Nightwatches, Sentinels, Joint Rivets

Any AWACS, Hawkeyes, Mercurys

Any MAGMA callsign – but don’t post until they have “feet wet” (over water) when returning after a mission. Don’t endanger their mission by premature posting.

If you suspect an operation, bag and tag it, but post it later; allowing special operators time to complete their mission.

And here's the beginnings of a spreadsheet I'm using to keep my head organized. This is by no means complete. Just adding aircraft as I learn about them from our squad leader. This is a couple of days worth. I expect this will get very long and welcome suggestions for additional columns of data we'd like to collect, like last sighting for example?

Medevac Helicopter Fagging

Sometimes we suspect medevac choppers are being used for extractions. Often these are type EC35 (Europcopter, Lakota) on which military pilots are trained. Also EC30, EC45.

You can often tell it's a medevac by the owner's name. Failing that, by a photo of the chopper; air ambulances are prominently marked.

When sorting medevacs the following Reg. No. suffixes are often chosen by medevac owners:

AM = Air Methods (co. name)

PH = Phi Air Med (co. name)

ME = MEdevac

MT = Med transport

LF = life flight

ER = emerg room

RX = med

MH = med helicopter.

We are compiling a list of known US medevac choppers. Attached list is just a first stab to get the list started.

Try ADSB with filters MIL=OFF, species=helicopter. When suspect is ID'd, click that chopper's flightaware link to open flightaware tracking.

Or try Flightradar24 with 1 filter, type=EC35. Use Multi-Select (upper right corner) to select up to 4 helicopter dots at once and display their ownership. Change settings to display either just Reg. No. or just Callsign. No-callsign "blocked" does not necessarily mean anything and if you change it to display to Reg. No., at least you can input that chopper's Reg. No. into flightaware for tracking.

On flightaware you can zoom into the map and actually see exactly where it lands and takes off, near a hospital, military base, residential address, middle of nowhere, etc. Chopper tracking often disappears a few hundred feet elevation before landing though. Watch the altimeter to decide if it's fixing to land and screencap before it disappears.

MedevacFagging is an advanced level of planefagging and it's definitely an acquired skill with a learning curve.

Hope this helps somebody.

Over.

Regarding the E-3 flying over the central CONUS area this is quite normal as one of the main bases for them is Tinker AFB Oklahoma.

So it is quite common to see them patrolling or training in that area.

Some help ID'ing civilian choppers in the US. List is far from complete.

Some suffixes often associated with medevac choppers:

AM = Air Methods (an owner's name)

PH = Phi Air Med (an owner's name)

ME = MEdevac

MT = Med transport

LF = life flight

ER = emerg room

RX = med

MH = med helicopter

I don't believe there is any formal requirement to use specific suffixes for medevacs; it's whatever the owner picks or can get. Glance down this list at the ones marked EMS and those are confirmed medevacs. Those not categorized in the list haven't been ID'd yet.

It's apparent that medevacs are not limited to Eurocopter 35, 135 or Lakota; other models are also in medevac service.

On ADSB, after clicking a chopper of interest, click the Flightaware link (CTRL-click to open a new tab if tracking many). Flightaware will keep tracking that specific chopper while you look around. You can set the map to satellite and zoom in and actually see if it's landing in a neighborhood, on a freeway, or in a hospital parking lot (well you can guess anyway). You can also scroll down below the map and see its recent flights; if medevac you may be able to determine where it's based (usually a regional or municipal airport) and whether it does fly to/from a hospital. Photos of the chopper can be helpful to determine if it's an air ambulance/EMS.

To 'PLANEFAGS' from anon >>2199027 #2772

From MI Manual:

TROJAN (MI SIGINT Equip) Is deployed and transported on C-130, C-17, and C-5. So whenever those are flying we could potentially be gathering intel on bad actors in the area. I know these are common planes but, I still wanted to pass along the info.


52b517 No.2199665

>>2199097

Please read the bottom paragraph of the capture.

The TROJAN system is air portable using C-130, C-5, C-17 aircraft.

This does not mean that it is operated from these aircraft.

It is a containerised type systems to allow field commanders access to & local control of SIGINT collection & dissemination.

As such it is not really worth tracking masses of regular military flying trucks on the off-chance one might delivering the air portable part of the TROJAN system.

Discovered a little weirdness in ADSB's user interface, that could result in missed data if not understood. In particular,

the ADSB MIL filter works a little different from the other filters.

What I observed:

Had MIL filter set

Added SPECIES = HELICOPTER filter

Result: Only helicopters that are military

Unchecked MIL filter

Result: Only helicopters that are civilian

(Military helicopters are suppressed)

Deleted MIL filter

Result: All helicopters, both military and civilian.

I would have thought that disabling vs. deleting the MIL filter should have an identical effect, but they don't act the same.

ADS-B Coverage

Automatic dependent surveillance – broadcast. Automatic dependent surveillance – broadcast (ADS–B) is a surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling it to be tracked.

This map indicates the extent of ADS_B global coverage. Any aircraft flying outside of the green areas will not show up on the various tracking sites, applications e.g. ADS-B Exchange, Radarbox, Flightradar24, etc.

If you have the reg or flight number etc you can check the plane's flight history to track where it has been. There may be a delay of hours or days before the flight history is updated so if the interesting flight does not show up immediately make a note of the details and check up on its history a day or two later.

Hey planefags, thanks for all the updates in the main breads. I have some basic questions if you have the time.

1. What procedure is in place to achieve the blocked call-sign status? Where does the authority to have that status originate and it is just for public info radar or can the commerical/miltary radar have the correct call sign at any given moment? Or, is it up to the pilot throwing a switch?

2. I see a lot of no call-sign status, particularly for smaller aircraft. Is this normal and how is that come about as well?

3. I notice most most commercial airliners travel at about 507 knots. Is that near top speed or just the sweet spot for fuel consumption?

Thanks in advance. Keep up the good work.

1. I imagine that any aircraft can refrain from transmitting its callsign. Commercial flights want to be tracked so they will generally not do this. Some military flights evidently are under orders to keep a low profile and their ADSB is turned off or selectively enabled. There are numerous scenarios where an a/c will not transmit any callsign. Some of the radar sites designate this as "blocked".

2. Ditto.

3. Airspeed is a function of many factors. First, look up what kind of plane it is, then look up its specifications. The specs will give maximum speed and cruising speed, as well as max altitude and typical cruising altitude. ATC can tell an a/c what altitude to fly at for safety reasons (avoid collision) and a/c can also vary speed/altitude as necessary due to wind, weather, thunderheads, approach pattern, etc. You should understand the speed as a function of a/c capabilities and mission.

If you see a military Gulfstream or Citation flying at >500 knots at 42,500' you can probably assume they are in a hurry to get somewhere therefore it is an important flight to transport military brass.

Hope that helps.

Airline Pilot -fag here, anons. ADSB is not required for the majority of aircraft until 2020. At that point you will need ADSB to fly in Class A,B,C and E Airpace above 10000', but not above 2500' AGL.

The airlines have adopted ADSB features for safety and economy reasons. Corporate operators as well. The military has ADSB, but are under no order to use it for public consumption. If they do not want you to see them, you will not see them. They are like Navy Seals when they want to be- operations occur and you'll never know about them until years have passed. Maybe never.

ADSB tracks GROUNDSPEED. Any airliner or corporate/military type business jet cruises in the mid 30's to low 40's in altitude. Newer Gulfstream, Canadair, Falcon type aircraft routinely cruise in the upper 40's. Groundspeeds in the 420- 520 knot range are normal and common. Airliners cruise at ,76- .79 mach. (76%-79% of the speed of sound). Some newer corporate jets are most efficient at mid to upper 40's altitude, and are capable of .83-.88 mach while there.

Groundspeed does not denote being in a hurry or carrying "top brass". If top brass or someone else is being taken somewhere- you won't know about it until its over.

Airlinepilotfag- over and out.

1. Can be done at request to the public flight tracking web pages or by request to the FAA and possible approval.

https://www.fly.faa.gov/ASDI/asdi.html

2. Yes, normal. All will have an ICAO or MLAT number, but the trick is finding it. ADSBex is good for that.

3. It depends on what the A/C was designed for. Some A/C designed for lots of takeoffs and landings (short commuter flights) will have thrust specific fuel consumption (TSFC) optimized for takeoff. Others with long hauls will be optimized for best TSFC at cruise. One the amazing things about the A/C powered by the CFM-56 variants is that it does both profiles very well.

Speed of sound is 1100 fps. Depending upon altitude/distance- there will always be a delay between when an aircraft flies past and you hear it. Also- keep in mind the newer high bypass engines are designed such that the flow of hot exhaust gasses are shrouded inside a flow of colder ambient air. This blocks much of the noise making for quieter more neighborhood friendly jets. Older generation of turbojet engines were incredibly good at turning fuel into noise, which I loved, but they were very good at creating angry airport neighbors. Hope this helps.

>Recommend a methodology to monitor civilian flights

I'm going to try this:

1. ADSB zoom way in (to reduce # of a/c on the screen)

2. Clear MIL filter

3. Set filter for 1 operator code e.g. ABX

4. Zoom way out

5. Select a/c of interest

6. [CTRL-]Rightclick on Flightaware link to open selected a/c in its own tab (CTRL- to force each subsequent Flightaware link to open each in its own tab)

Wash, rinse, repeat for as many tabs as planefag can tolerate….

Thinking out loud. Comments?

Trying to work out a methodology for

Tracing prisoner transfers to Gitmo

1. Study Gitmo scheduled arrivals https://flightaware.com/live/airport/MUGM

2. Select a specific future flight

3. Determine where that flight originates

4. Camp on flight origin (over what period of time subsequent to scheduled departure?), with no filters(?), watching for possible military arrivals, civilian medevac choppers, military choppers, and around time of departure watch for possible military escort

I see 1, 2 and 3 as easy.

4 looks hard.

When prisoner transfers are planned, could there be an overnight stay between delivering the prisoners, and departure of the flight to Gitmo? How long is it necessary to monitor one specific city/airport, prior to a scheduled departure to Gitmo?

My goal is to work out a rigorous methodology that is actually feasible to perform. I don't see step 4 as being feasible for more than a couple of locations.

Need to concentrate our limited resources in a way that has potential to be productive!

Discussion? Ideas? Suggestions?

In addition to suspected prisoner transfers, air traffic to/from Gitmo is expected as a result of scheduled construction activity. Some of the material/personnel will undoubtedly be transported by ship. Others by plane. I found some construction contracts but don't have dates for when the construction must be complete. Couldn't find the bid proposal for installing the padding in prisoner cells that anons dug up circa Nov-Dec/2017.

The presence of construction-related air traffic makes our needle-in-a-haystack problem more complex.

Slightly different angle.


95f0ec No.2554899

I think the key to this is determining the staging points. We know that flight originate from military installations or regional airports, such as

Norfolk Chambers KNGU

Andrews Joint Base ADW

Manassas Field KHEF

Patuxent Naval Station NHK

Fort Lauderdale FLL

Jacksonville KNIP

Miami KMIA

Checking the Departure tables for these may provide a clue.

These and knowing the airlines used may help us find the transfer flights. Flights that have exec jet escort are also highly probable to have targets aboard.

That's either a CASA 235/295 or a C-130 Hercules, I can't tell from the photo. CASAs have two engines, C-130s have four.

The images show that it has engines mounted high on the wing rather than being in line with the wing.

Aircraft appears to be over a lake so most probably it is one of these amphibian flying boat aircraft - Grumman Mallard or a Grumman Albatross.

KAF Recon Squad has narrowed down what to watch in regard to possible prisoner transfers to Guantanamo. These are the locations where we might expect to see medevac choppers along with possible military Blackhawk or military executive jet escorts acquiring prisoners or delivering them for further transport to Gitmo on the daily scheduled commercial flights.

I felt that KAF Recon Squad needed a better search algorithm to focus our limited resources on areas that are more likely to be productive, and this is what we came up with.

- - - - - - - - - -

Norfolk Naval Station - Chambers Field VA

Andrews Joint Base MD

Manassas Field VA

Patuxent Naval Station MD

Fort Lauderdale FL

Jacksonville FL

Miami FL

Rarely:

Chicago O’Hare IL

and DC

- - - - - - - - - -

We also need to check the arrival and departure tables for Gitmo, airport code NBW (=MUGM), regularly. https://flightaware.com/live/airport/MUGM

has free recent history only, so needs regular checking.

We also know there is or may be ongoing construction work at Gitmo. We located several construction bids for upgrading the Navy's wharf, construction of 13,000 units of "displaced persons housing" plus support personnel infrastructure, a legal complex including six SCIF sites for defense attorneys and their clients, and something about installing padding for the prison cells.

So we recognize that some of the daily flights could be related to that construction activity.

Hope the spreadsheet helps. Sometimes I need to organize my thoughts in writing when there is so much distracting chaos/energy on the general breads.

OK. Do I took the contract number contained in one of your screen caps over to the Federal Procurement website. Two contracts popped up - drill down for contract information by clicking 'view'. Looks like the 'mostly complete' date for both phases is 9/13 of this year with the all the way complete by April '19.

Maybe it was taking part in a display or event/regatta on the river. Maybe it was doing a sightseeing tour with paying passengers. Maybe a wealthy owner flew in from the Caribbean, lots of these type of planes hopping between the islands.

Most likely it was a local private owner/operator.
