Re: flight routes? potential bug or (ahem) pilot error

I am sure people will correct if I am wrong but I suspect VRS is being 'clever'. Andrew has implemented some logic to help match callsign variations to routes - handling when leading zeros are omitted or added, for example so "ETD020" and "ETD20" resolve to the same correct route. I am sure there ar...

Change of callsign for Air Serbia?

Andrew I logged an Air Serbia flight today (YU-APF). This was using the callsign "ASL381". VRS didn't show a route for this flight. I looked up the aircraft and flight on FlightRadar and Planefinder and found the route is LHR to BEG (Heathrow to Belgrade - flight number JU381). I tried to add the ro...

Re: Question about old batch outstanding

I have also come up against the "duplicate route" and was confused about whether to submit my route or not, so thanks for the update. What might be nice / useful is if the pending route could be shown rather than just the warning. Then if it matches my route I wouldn't bother to submit it again and ...

Registration Override for Flags

Hi Andrew I saw in another thread that you intend to disable the registration override for operator flag code and silhouettes in the next release because of a potential clash when the registration matches the ICAO Type code causing an incorrect silhouette to be displayed. Can I make a request that y...

Re: VRS-EUROPE.ORG.UK

Thanks Jon I'll have a play with sbs-resources ... probably over the weekend to distract me from eating too many Easter Eggs and Hot-X buns ! I'm in SW London, under southern (via Ockham & Biggin holding points) approach to LHR when they are using 09. I think you are pretty well covered this area al...

Re: VRS-EUROPE.ORG.UK

Hi Jon just checked out the vrs_europe site. Like what you are doing. Just a quick question regarding military aircraft. I noticed you have squadron specific operator icons for RAF and other air forces and would like to do something similar with my VRS setup. I have found a couple of downloads to gi...

Re: Bugs in 2.0.2

A minor reports/filters bug (I think) If you select "Operator" as the criteria for a report or web page filter it seems to query against the "registeredowners" basestation field. I expected it be looking at the operatorflagcode field. My basestation database (obtained from the ManTMA Overflights gro...

Re: Bugs in 2.0.1 - Not Interesting enough?

Apologies if this is user error or is a known issue addressed in 2.0.2. I have marked some aircraft as "interesting" in the basestation file - set the "interested" flag. When I run a report and set criteria to show "interesting" aircraft no results are returns even when I include a date range where ...
