    Abu Dhabi Amiri Flight

    If I have posted this to the wrong forum, my apologies as I am new to the forum.

    However, also new to me is the tracking of one of the VVIP Amiri Flights, in which I have just tracked.

    Date: June 8, 2010
    Time: 00:15BST

    Abu Dhabi Amiri Flight
    Flight No: ROJ04
    Call Sign: Royal Jet 04
    A/C: B737-7Z5
    Reg: A6-DAS
    Hex: 89605E

    Depart: Istanbul
    Destination: Shannon (not sure if stopover or final destination)

    I thought they stopped using these jets in favor of the newer Airbus' ?

    Regards,

    Hi Responder, did some checking and they have at least 4 737's, they also have 1 Bae Avro RJ70 / 1 Bae Avro RJ100 / 1 A320-232 / 1 767-341 / 1 777-35RER and 1 747-4F6. Regarding it's flight plan all i could find out is it call's into Shannon for fuel. You might find this link to Flight Global Contrails interesting ;

    Certainly looks that way Retro11.

    Have you ever tracked "Air Force One"? That's quite difficult, as they sometimes changed the Mode-S to look like another A/C.

    Same here. Unable to track it in the USA and haven't caught it on here yet. However, i have heard it on my scanner when it has come to LHR and it flew across Bristol sector.

    So, yes, I listen too. I like to pick a flight just taking-off and follow it to its destination. Domestic flights of course lol.

    So, am I classed as an A/C stalker - watching and listening? It is good fun though.

    I have a Uniden base scanner, pre-amp and a Discone fairly high up

    some set up, used to have similar years ago now just a whip aerial (wife would crack up with something like that on our roof) listen a lot though to live atc.net. that site is amazing heard baw 77 divert into birmingham alabama last night the crew were even concerned about taxiway strength could all end up in tears the pilot said .
    many a night have been listening to kuwait with fr24 coverage of that area busy area down there but nothing beats jfk tower so different from over here well aberdeen anyway!!
