    Sikorsky S-76

    Hello. Hope I am in the correct forum for this post. I am watching a Sikorsky S76C on FR24, N1875A enroute from KMMU to CYYC at July23/17 1812 GMT. I wonder why
    FR24 shows it at 43,000 feet and 480 KTS? Any explanation for this what appears to be an error for a helicopter? Thanks.

    It could be because the aircraft type hasn't been updated on a database somewhere. On both FR24 & Airframes.org the HEX code & registration belong to a Sikorsky S76C, but on Gatwick Aviation Society website they both belong to a Gulfstream G650, serial 6248.
    The FAA Registry confirms it's a Gulfstream C650: http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinqu...umbertxt=1875A

    Sounds like one for the airframe updates thread
