    The general consensus is that C17 don't normally transmit positional data.

    Has FR24 got an Mlat feed?

      I wondered this myself Anmer,

      As a few of them in the past have been lacking Heading and a couple of other features like it was being found via MLAT. But they dont seem to jump around like you would expect if they were missing the odd data packet from some of different stations receiving its ModeS.

      Perhaps in some circumstances they are allowed to enable the transponders full features if not for full military purpose, but to say re-position?

        Interesting discussion on these "sightings" over on the Kinetic forum:
