    In reality you do not know which one is correct.

      99.9% certain, as helicopter parked at Airborne Logistics, speed and performance match AS350, Mil 8 is too big for the flights undertaken
      The AS350 was imported in November 2019, all imports were required to be ADS-B compliant
      I'll be in PNG on tour flying next week.

          Good job database editors adding this one

          Maybe if you look at your database you could actually work out which Varesh B735 is miscoded on one box and sending this code incorrectly or is that too difficult?

          EP-VAM is still a Tecnam without a transponder, but it seems we can just make up aircraft for the database

              • Then its a miscode on the aircraft and wont wont be changed. The true allocation is EE2.

                  Yes but aircraft is transmitting EA2 and is getting shown as a C310 flying at FL450... So better to assign the wrong code being used by the G5 so that it properly shows.

                    Irrelevant.

                    We can't change a callsign or the hex-code. They are sent out by the transponder of the aircraft. It's quite common for an aircraft to transmitt incorrect callsign or incorrect hex-code. Only the aircraft owner can change that data.
                    Miscodes are not handled(or deleted totally). It just makes the records worse to fix later.

                        Drink some water and calm down. See the flight history of this aircraft. Regular Varesh flights, speed and flight altitude are clearly not Tecnam.

                            Maybe you can provide an MSN for this imaginary aircraft then?

                            You should look at the (incomplete) flight history too then you could work out which other Varesh aircraft is miscoded on one box and sending this code.

                            But hey the editors believe you so that's all that matters

                            Make sure you and the database editors add more aircraft that don't exist

                              Hi Norse. We have a saying in my country : when you are in a hole, stop digging !

                              Wayne is correct.

                              73582D does indeed decode to registry EP-VAM but it's a red herring. It is in fact a 1 box miscode on known B735 EP-VBM. The correct hex for the frame is 73584D and it is using that, but only on 1 of its 2 boxes. Perhaps an apology to Wayne is in order?
