Plane in red

Postby Bhaal » Fri Jan 01, 2016 6:02 am

Uh, I just noticed this and never seen it before, I had a plane go to the top of the list, it wasn't listed as "Interesting" or anything, and it was highlighted in red:

Thanks for that, when I saw the plane, it wasn't on radar for much longer before it went out of range, in fact by the time I had saved the screen shot it was gone... I wonder if someone had just hit the wrong button in the cockpit maybe... Nothing has been mentioned on the news that I know of..

The emergency squawks cover a whole range of issues. It's only the really bad ones that would make the news.

7600 squawks I can understand, happens a lot. I see way more 7500 squawks than I would expect though and I'm not sure what's up with that, perhaps someone meant to squawk 7600 or 7700?

Pretty big mistake if you ask me. Any _real_ 7500 should make the news...

Just had one of these yesterday and was wondering what the red meant. This was only the second time I had ever seen that status appear.
