Ongoing problem confirmed by other users.

At 2019-02-03 14:27 it deleted the OP code and Registered Owner of 4AAA12.

Since 2017, 3 out of 7 helicopters from the same owner (Swedish Police) has had the Reg Owner reset to something coming from the main database.

Please try to find the problem.

The problem was fixed and released last year.

If you are not using the database editor plugin to modify the aircraft records then you need to ensure that the UserString1 is not set to "Missing". The issue, or at least the one that I fixed, was that this field is used as a marker for placeholder aircraft records created from missing online lookups and the database editor plugin wasn't clearing the field when a manual edit was applied.
