    Where? Most VP lists have the British Isles within the British range. 40000-43FFFF from memory.

    Aruba doesn't seem to have its own allocation outlined anywhere but included under the Netherlands range as it is governed by them.

    40000-43FFFF it's full the British range. I didn't find any official allocation range part for the British Isles. Or in Aruba there are few registered aircraft and it makes no sense to allocate part of the range?

    You still didn't say where you saw no flag displaying?. Aruba is governed by the Netherlands. So where ever you see it, whole range should get Dutch flag. Just the prefix may not be PH.

    If you mean on FR24, they aren't using the same blanket lookup ranges it seems.

    In most cases, for software user side to display proper flag, the entire range is used. Or individual HEX/Binary if known and not many

    https://radarspotting.com/forum/inde...a0cb7#msg39434 (Many P4-)

    I used a mixture for VPs, working on bit address blocks (most cases 32) and various sources to break up the location/expected Prefix. Of course it's not likely to be 100% accurate either as they are so mixed (and some missing like 424436). But I do say that

    Regarding Uzbeks and UK reg..

    From what I can gather, ICAO/ITU have always laid out a prefix shall be no more than 2 letters of the allocated 3 letter airline code.
    https://www.icao.int/secretariat/pos...tion_marks.htm

    And suffix of no more than 5 chars.

    That gives a 7 char limit.

    As 90% of the new registration numbers are now 5 chars, I believe this has lead to them dropping the - (or being told to) as they do not have a single allocated country range that could fill the slot C-/G-/B-/N

    They're also listed on wiki with no hyphen

    The posting in the "aircraft to be added" forum are just getting out of hand.
    Despite constant reminders that its not for changed data, it continues to be
    posted. Either these people cannot read or simply chose to ignore what they
    are being told. Not wishing to add to Oblivian's workload but surely its time to
    bring the axe down on these posting and remove those which do not belong.

    And yet another Dilema.

    Colombia

    I suspect as they have had Microlite SUFFIX in the past, they are now branding small aircraft with -G as another classification?

    Someone is frantically changing Registration data based on what appears to be photos - just 1 example

    https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...l=1#post116075
    https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/6959231

    But if you query the register, has them with no G (nor HK- for that matter but that may be a lookup limitation)
    HK.JPG

    And on the certificate you can see a G 'utilization' category

    HK2.JPG

    So the question is raised. Do you classify full database registrations on their presented registration on-wing (will cause more jetphotos issues). Or the actual apparent allocation in the register
