    This must be one of the craziest PR stunt I've ever seen.

    Listening to and re-broadcasting radio transmissions (including ModeS data) is against the law in many countries and risks drawing attention to a hobby that is "tolerated".

    AirNav needs to rethink this PR stunt ASAP. Even its loyal followers agree:

    * Contact the airlines for each above squawk for more details of the incidents. Since AirNav Systems didn't include any news links for each Hijack squawk*

    Something tells me that these alerts are bogus or another one of there bugs , this Aircraft is a Freight Aircraft and i reckon a Hijack is unlikely.

    FR24 decided to block 7500 alerts after some people have called the police to report a hijack of an aircraft landing in Copenhagen (after an automatic 7500 twitter alert). Now I receive all 7500 alerts on e-mail, and if there is hijack situation we will report it manually. The 7500 alerts are in 98% of the cases pilot errors, 2% technical problems, and 0% hijacks.
