    Funny Callsigns

    Today I heard a number of fast jets flying locally so popped my head indoors to have a look at my Virtual Radar and FR24.

    List

    UK Eurofighter E200 Typhoon FGR.4 - Call Sign PYSCHO34
    UK Boeing Sentry AEW1 - Call Sign NATO33
    UK Panavia Tornado GR4 - Call Sign MR11
    UK Panavia Tornado GR4 - Call Sign MR14
    UK Panavia Tornado GR4 - Call Sign MR23

    There were two additional Tornados with Call Signs of MR13 & MR12, but they dropped of my list before I could screen grab..!

    Must have been on a long flight somewhere, they were accompanied by a US Boeing KC135R Stratotanker.

    There was another plane on the list with the call sign MONSTR21 but I could not see what it was..!

    My favourite is obviously PSYCHO34 as you can almost imagine what the pilot must be like..

    The Tornados were likely using the callsign MARHAM.

    There was a large exercise on in that area, so they didn't go far. MONSTER was also a Tornado.

    Cheers Kyle, I thought it might be another Tornado.. being in the middle of two Spanish Airforce Bases, I do pick up a lot of Military Aircraft, can't see them on FR24, but I feed the data into VirtualRadar that shows me the Call Signs if they have them switched on, some don't.

    We get a number of the German Tornados over this area as well as German and Spanish Typhoons - the KC135R' s seem to fly over almost on a daily basis!
