    Seen today in Accra, Ghana
    Still using old hex, therefore miscoded.
    Don't know the ICAO type code? Look it up here.

                And that's why it is here :-)
                Happens quite a bit with older aircraft in Africa.

                  Don't report them as changes unless they have their proper 0xxxxx Hex code re-programmed

                  They won't be changed to non US details in the database.

                          hey, why is that? it should be your goal to correctly depict the planes in the app, right?
                          Users will be more interested in knowing the correct registration and airline with the correct picture, than having the correct hex. At least that counts for myself.

                            Because it's NOT right. If it's broadcasting a US HEX, it can ONLY be a US Reg.

                            A. It will be reused in the USA very soon - duplicate
                            B. It is against ICAO protocol to run the wrong/duplicate details in a region where the aircraft is not registered
                            C. It's outlined in Post 1
                            https://forum.flightradar24.com/foru...ase#post187494
                            Please don't report data where hex-code and registration is not matching (same country). This happens often when an aircraft is transfered to a new country and the new owner doesn't update the transponder data.
                            List is available on http://www.mantma.co.uk/icao_country_codes.html
                            This means that an aircraft with hex-code between A00000 and AFFFFF can only have an US N-registration and not Brazil PR-registration or German D-registration or Chinese B-registration.
                            This will hopefully make aircraft owners more aware of that they are using an incorrect hex-code and also decrease of numbers of errors when hex-code is re-used in country of orgin.
                            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.

                              • Qatar Airways aircraft A7-AFV was withdrawn from service since January 2019. It is now operated by Sichuan Airlines (CSC) as B-308L.
