    MLAT USA

    I just noticed to my surprise a Delta MD90 (N911DA) climbing out of ATL. It was just visible for a short time. It did
    not appear with position on my SBS-3.
    It was not visible on Planeplotter either (with position), which I have running here on a second PC with a USB dongle.
    It was caught by T-KAVL1.

    According to Flightaware, N911DA is now operating DL2100 ATLBOS - which fits.

    Did we have an MLAT moment here?

    No, it was not MLAT. This happens in Europe sometimes and I don't really know why. One theory is that if TCAS is activated, position is sent out.

    First MLAT in USA should be activated in about 2 weeks.

    Don't know if this is the right place to ask but do you know when MLAT will be active in the UK?

    Thanks,
