Learn planefagging here. Post your questions and get answers.

We will do our best to coach anyone who sincerely wants to learn how to track planes and interpret their movements.


This is no substitute for Planefagging 101

that's no longer easy to access, having been archived on the QResearch board.


We monitor the skies using crowd-sourced websites that geolocate planes the transmit their positions using ADSB digital transponders.


Often, we don't know in advance whether our observations will turn out to be fruitful and link to real-time events, or not. So we are into archiving.


We also study resources that can be used when a plane crash occurs, to determine the owner, pilot, type of plane, passengers, accident investigation details, etc.


There's nothing more thrilling than a call of "Planefags Scramble" when something important has been spotted!


So, buckle up and jump aboard!


Planefagging awaits.

Sure, I have a question, why do planefags post regular exercises out of know bases like San Diego, etc? Odd stuff? Lets see it, but a couple of F/A-18's going from Mira Mar back and forth to a carrier is not a big deal.

Because some are not regular planefags, have no military experience, and often have no idea what's of interest. I fall into some of those categories.

Other times we get anons who are learning or trying it out, and they get excited about posting what they see, and are looking for feedback as they learn.

Quick ADSB Tutorial


Get Started by Watching Military Aircraft



Click Global Radar View

Quick, before your screen populates with thousands of planes, click Menu

Then Options

Then Filters

Pick Military from the list of filters, click Add Filter

Click Enable Filters

Exit the menu


Now comfy.

Now you can scroll the map, zoom in and out, and see only flights that are tagged "military"

You can resize text column, arrange the screen to your liking


Now you can go back and play with the menu options if you like. I like the Aircraft


Display 2 or 3 lines

Decide what info you want displayed

for each aircraft on the map.

Callsign, Registration, Operator Code, User Tag

Or maybe you can get by with just 2 lines, and have more map real estate left

I like

Aircraft Trails -- show for all aircraft

But it does make for a cluttered map

ADSB Issues


Sometimes you get a blank map on ADSB.

I think they have their issues.

If this happens, try this, which often fixes the problem:


Go back to ADSB home page.

Under the Global Radar View pulldown, click Clear/Remove Map Settings.

You'll see a page displaying your ADSB cookies.

Delete all the cookies.

Now try the map again. It will be like you never logged in before -- you will see all planes over southern England -- all your menu settings will be lost.


If you see planes, you're good to go and need to do you menu settings and filters again. See >>14403


If it didn't fix the problem, you could try ADSB mobile version:


If that STILL didn't fix the problem,well then the problem may be in someone blocking the crowd-sourced reporting of ADSB transponder data, web outages between crowd-sourced receivers and ADSB's website, ADSB's web server, their database, their connection to their database, etc. but nothing you can do about it.


One more trick. If you have circumnavigated the ADSB map in one direction, maybe east to west, 360 degrees of longitude or more, then when you return to your starting point the map appears to be blank even though planes are listed. (Appears to be a bug.) Try unwinding the globe by retracing your navigation back 360 degrees in the opposite direction. This has worked for me!


Wheels up!

Refining your Technique


by making the screen caps searchable



  1. Timestamp your caps.

  2. Add Callsign and/or Registration (Tail) No. and/or Location tags



I use a tool called Shutter (for Linux) and start it in the Eastern Timezone so my caps' filenames will automatically be tagged with an EST/EDT timestamp.


Anons have to look up or select other tools if they use other operating systems. There are tons of these screencap utilities available.


Tag with Searchable Text

A further refinement is to add the callsign or registration # or location. Whatever you think might help find the cap you're looking for at some future date when the timestamp alone is no longer terribly meaningful. This is where planefagging can get rather tedious.


Some do these extras and some don't.


ALL planefagging is greatly appreciated!


Welcome aboard and thanks for going on duty!!!

Types of Aircraft and their Roles


Next, planefag learners will start learning the different types of military aircraft and their typical roles.

Which ones are used for pilot training?

Which ones are bombers, surveillance/reconaissance, command-and-control, cargo, multi-purpose, electronic warfare, rapid personnel movement, brass transport, drones, helicopters, etc.?


You can cut & paste the plane description from ADSB to a search engine and read up to learn moar.


Example: How does the Army typically use the Beech MC-12W Liberty?


Trainers are generally not notable ever.


Fighter and bomber aircraft (F-15E, F-16, F/A-18, A-10, B-1, B-2, etc.),

Reconnaissance aircraft (Predator, Global Hawk, RC-135, U-2)

Electronic warfare aircraft (EC-130s, EA-6Bs and F-16CJs)

Command and Control aircraft (E-3, E-8C, E-2C, etc)


Build your own comfy list as you begin to master the aircraft types, and begin to notice where they typically fly and when.

Strange Flight Paths


Sometimes the flight path does not match the type of aircraft.


  • For example a helicopter will usually fly low and slow, and it can turn in tight circles that a fixed-wing aircraft can't. Sometimes an aircraft isn't labelled right on ADSB. I presume this is the fault of the pilot or maintenance or whoever configured/initialized the ADSB transponder.

You can look up the specifications on a helicopter and learn their maximum altitude; it varies by model, but choppers NEVER fly as high as an airplane.


  • Other times the flight path appears strangely jagged. I am quite certain the plane did not actually fly a jagged course since that is physically impossible in conventional aviation. Rather, the transponder is transmitting data points that are inaccurate, and ADSBexchange software is connecting the dots. The result is what appears to be a jagged course. I am guessing that sometimes military aircraft deliberately add a random value to their position so they purposely do not report a precise accurate position, for Op Sec reasons.

If they don't want us to see them on ADSB, they can turn off their transponder. Flight controllers' radar will still pick up the plane's location, but civilians like us won't have the added info provided by ADSB digitally-coded replies to radar pings.


  • Some of the high-flying aircraft will never give their true altitude. A military anon reported that some often fly far higher than 40,000 - 45,000 feet, but report their altitude as 40,000. So take altitude with a grain of salt. Did you notice that ADSB color-codes the aircraft trail according to altitude? Did you notice that altitude is also reported in the text fields on the right side?

Files located and will be posted here.


Getting Started with Planefagging


Useful web sites:


ADS-B Exchange - learn how to use the filters


Radarbox - flight scanning


Flightaware - very useful for flight histories and arrivals lists


Flightradar24 - flight scanning


You also need to be able to spot unusual patterns, things that 'don't look right' against the backdrop. It's a skill you can develop and eventually you develop a 'usual suspects list' that KAF R1 has that we watch.


German Air Force (Luftwaffe), Swiss Air Force and French Air Farce aren't to be trusted. 2-reg planes are 'wheelmen' for the wealthy, such as Soros as they can't travel via normal routes. 2-reg planes are 'military' and can bypass some customs checks (hint).


ATC Live can be useful if you know a happening is going on around an airport. Listening to the Tower can provide insight.


Anything else, just ask. Kekistan Recon 1 can always use new recruits.


More Planefagging Stuff


Helicopters (helos) - groups of helos, particularly Medevac or Mercy Flight ones, should attract attention. This may indicate arrests or renditions, as Q etc. won't use military helos for that as a Black Hawk gets the wrong sort of attention and freaks the straights. Someone from a Medevac helo that "Wants to take you to a place of safety" doesn't attract so much suspicion.


Tankers, Poseidons, Nightwatches and Mercurys all mean something military is going on. Fighters don't usually squawk on ADS-B, they only have IFF (although an F-15 called DARK21 did squawk in the UK a few times around Christmas). Remember, you only get to see what they want you to see.


It's all in the patterns and follow your instincts. If you think it's post-worthy, put it up and your squadron colleagues will assist and guide you.

Flight History


Sometimes you want to find out where that plane has been, or what it routinely does.


One way is to click the ADSB Other Tracking Info pulldown then Flight History.


You can search on ICAO number,

Registration, or Callsign.

Some of these searches don't work or hang forever.

If it works, you'll get a list of flight history that's available on ADSBexchange, by date.

Try clicking a date to see the whole flight trace on a map.

These can be quite enlightening.


We'll get into other websites, several ways to track civilian aircraft, other ways to get flight history, etc. later, as needed.

Things to try


→Open ADSB in its own browser (not a tab). I put mine in a different Linux workspace so I can easily switch between planefagging and the board with one key combination.


→Open multiple copies of ADSB in different tabs to watch different locations.


→Zoom to the entire USA and count the number of MIL flights listed; compare with 'normal' for the day of the week and time of day.


→Sort ADSB table by Flag and look for foreign flights, or an unusual number of USMC in the air other than around a Marine base.


→Sort by Silhouette and notice helicopers in unusual places or clustered. Notice unusual kinds of aircraft like Ospreys, Fighter Jets, Refuelling Tankers, Drones (UAVs), Balloons (rare), U2.


→Sort by Registration and look for 02-xxxx


→Sort by Callsign and look for MAGMAxx which is JSOC, usually of interest. Other callsigns also sometimes indicate the nature of the mission.


→Sort by speed and look for planes going unusually fast (>500 kn) or unusually slow.


→Sort by altitude and look for planes flying over 40,000' which would tend to indicate they are in a hurry and avoiding civilian air traffic which generally flies lower.


→If your browser doesn't crash when you try this, on the ADSB Menu, Aircraft tab, select "tails for all aircraft". Then zoom out and look for interesting patterns.


→If you notice someone circling or flying surveillance patterns, zoom in and see what it is.


→Screencap very frequently - you never know when something interesting is going to drop off the map. I use Shutter on Linux for screencaps.


→Learn where the US military bases are and what kinds of aircraft activities are normal in their vicinity.


→Helicopters that have been in the air for a long time are interesting, as are those continuously circling at low altitude.


→Learn the different kinds of planes and their typical missions.


→Pick one area of the world to concentrate on, and become very familiar with what is typical there.

Tracking Planes


I use Flightaware to track aircraft that are obviously of interest or are on long-haul flights, as it provides better tracking of flights when the ADS-B ping drops off over the coast, or over remote areas where there are no ADS-B transponders..


ADS-B Exchange will just show the end of the trail, whereas Fkightaware will attempt to give you an estimated track until a new ping is heard. Leaving the window open will also allow you to monitor Flightaware for when the ping returns.


Flightradar allows you to select a 'species' of plane (such as helicopter), or a specific type of plane. Executive jets of interest are Cessna Citations, Learjets, Dassault Falcons and similar, particularly if they aren't showing a call sign or may show 'Blocked' on Flightradar. The FBI and other law enforcement agencies may charter these types of planes and if you see two in formation with 'Blocked' call signs, this may be an escorted flight. It's worth comparing Radarbox to Flightradar to ensure that you aren't just picking up an ADS-B echo though, we've seen this happen.


Executive jets associated with big money (e.g. banks and trustees) are also of interest, particularly since the Wells Fargo exec was sucked out of that plane and killed. Planes are leased and mortgaged and banks/trustees have an interest in this market.


Flight History


For some aircraft of interest, It's worth downloading the flight log. Flightaware and ADS-B Exchange, along with for military planes, are invaluable for this. Retaining the history allows us to go back in the future and compare what we saw with actual events.




Any aircraft of interest should be 'tagged and bagged' with a screenshot. I use Paint, but any simple graphics that you can cut and paste into is good enough. Please mark any targets or destinations of interest on your screenshot and provide some context as to why this was interesting to you.


Why aren't some Air Forces trustworthy?


This is a bugbear of mine. I've seen too much of the French Air Farce, the Swiss and the Germans sneaking off to unusual places such as Argentina, Kazakhstan and the like. ASsk yourself why do the Swiss need an air force? SImple answer is that they don't, as they remain neutral in wars, but they do need the military facility to bypass Customs and Immigration, in a way similar to the 2-reg planes.


Routine Flights


As you watch the skies, you'll start to see regular patterns. The British, Qataris, German, Belgian and French Air Forces regularly fly to the US and they participate in training exercises.


=Very Unusual Planes==


From time to time, you'll see Israeli Kafirs, Hawker Hunters and even MiG-21s over the US. These are used by ATAC and are also used ij Top Gun exercises to allow fighter pilots to gain experience in jets with different abilities. Don't panic if you see them!1


Spoopy Activity


Any planes that have to 'Go Around' or that may have been diverted/refused landing permission are very interesting, as these may indicate a happening. Tag and bag these for future reference.


Some planes may also try to keep flying below 4000ft as this may cause ASDS-B to fall off. I have personal experience of seeing 2-reg planes do this and it sticks out a mile. Always tag and bag these.




On ADS-B exchange, you may see a plane 'squawk' 7600, 7770 or similar. These indicate an emergency and should be monitored, although some pilots manage to squawk 7700 while they are still setting the plane up on the tarmac.


Drones and UAVs


Drones and UAVs always indicate military activity. PIZZA13 was one drone that captured our attention at the time certain other events related to pizza were going on. If you see a UAV, screenshot it as it indicates that events are being monitored by the military. You may also see P-8 Poseidons, P-3 Orions, along with other surveillance and intel gathering planes such as Sentrys, Nightwatches, Sentinels, Joint Rivets, AWACS, Hawkeyes and Mercurys. Always worth screenshotting these.

You will sometimes see aircraft flagged up in the lists in red with a squawk code of 7500, 7600, or 7700.


Don't panic & over react when you see one usually it is operator error or the controller has requested that they use one of these codes to more easily identify the aircraft on a cluttered radar screen.


Sometimes the codes are used to give the controllers some practice of handling an emergency - I have seen single/two seat fighter or trainer aircraft using the 7500-hijack code.


The most common code is 7600 as aircraft are handed off from one control area to another they change to the wrong frequency & can't talk to who they need to talk to so to alert the local controller they use the 7600 code & listen out on the emergency frequency until the controller establishes contact.


The 7700 code is for genuine emergencies such as engine failure or bird strike etc. Sometimes airliners use this when they have miscalculated their fuel consumption, needed to divert to another airport & need priority for landing.


The codes have specific meanings -


7500 – Hijack


7600 – Lost Comms (radio failure)


7700 – Emergency

When you spot a cluster of unusual activity, such as a bunch of helos or recon aircraft orbiting an area consider the operational security aspect.


These aircraft might be engaged on an active operation with boots on the ground and we don't want to put special operators at risk.


It is better to bag and tag what you find and post it later to allow the special operators time to complete their mission.

Try not to post screen captures with half a gazillion overlapping tracks.


Just show the tracks of the relevant aircraft.


Adjust the zoom/cropping of the capture so that it is evident where the aircraft is and what it is doing.


On ADS-B scroll through the data list select & highlight the relevant aircraft so that its details are visible on the capture.


If necessary post two or more captures with one zoomed in close and the other zoomed out.


If you have an interesting group of aircraft or cluster of activity zoom in or out to capture the whole cluster highlighting aircraft & tracks as well as posting the individual aircraft.


Add a simple short explanation of what you have captured.

Keep Calm Don't Panic


Sometimes events happen & other non-planefag anons start freaking out but don't let this panic you.


Usually this is an event such as a shooting, air attack, or air crash or something similar.


Try to ascertain what is happening and where to focus your search & then try to capture anything relevant.


Do try to keep those that tend towards panic reassured & informed about what you find & what is happening.


Sometimes you will find that you are trying to track multiple aircraft widely dispersed around the world.


Sometimes the aircraft you are trying to track plays hard to get or the trackers start acting up making thing difficult for you.


If this happens don't be afraid to put a call out to the other planefags for assistance tracking.


Beware of random aircraft shills


Sometimes shills try to deflect your attention by asking you about some random aircraft and ask if you know anything about it.


Generally they don't know what the aircraft was or when they saw it.


They will say something like 'I saw a strange plane acting in a strange way in some obscure location on an unspecified date' and then expect you to know what it was all about.


It can be an interesting way to waste half a day if you are bored but generally it leads nowhere.

ATAC the Airborne Tactical Advantage Company - is a company owned by Textron that provides training solutions for the military.


Basically they provide targets for the various branches of the military to practise there tactics on in a safe way.


These aircraft operate out of and around the following areas primarily (see map highlighted orange) although they can be found almost anywhere if they are needed by the military -


Point Mugu California, the training bases/areas around Las Vegas Nevada, the Gulf of Mexico from Texas to Florida, the East coast of Florida up to the Norfolk Virginia area.


The operate a variety of aircraft the F-21 Kfir, Hawker Hunter, & L39 Albatross.


Whilst they can be fun to watch when things are quiet they are not of any importance to our task.




Omega is a company that provides aerial refuelling tankers for the military on a contract basis.


Most of their work is to do with training & supporting military exercises.


Mostly they are to be found around Southern California & just off the coast.


These aircraft have nothing to do with chemtrails or weather modification.


They use Boeing 707 and DC-10 aircraft roughly equivalent to the KC-135 & KC-10 used by the USAF.


As with ATAC the Omega aircraft can be found almost anywhere they are needed by the military.

Posting Captures


When posting captures try to keep them clean and easily read.


Highlight just the aircraft of interest preferably with a track trail so that its activity can be discerned.


Capture the details of the flight data - showing aircraft type, callsign, registration etc.


If need be edit with arrows or markers to highlight the details of the flight or other info.


Avoid heavily cluttered screens and multiple tracks where possible.


If necessary post two or more captures one showing the complete flight and others zoomed in to show more detail.


Add a short description about the flight avoiding a large wall of words.


All that is really necessary is the identity of the flight, its start finish locations, whether it is relevant to global events, stuff in the breads, or in the news etc.


Digging for info


If the skies are quiet dig around for info about some of the spoopy planes in the notables these are mainly the 2-#### aircraft.


Digging is as important as the tracking.


We need to find if they are connected to (((them))) the (((deep state))) etc.


If you find relevant info linking the planes to what is happening post it in the research bread.


If the info is not apparently relevant save it on your computer rather than post it in the bread because it might become relevant later.


Recently someone requested for planefags to dig for info into a flight into Bushehr Iran last year that subsequently to a 'Q' post and details about the Uranium 1 deal.


Use lateral thinking when digging not just flight tracking stuff.

Clogging the Bread


When things are habbening and the bread is busy try to avoid posting unless it is vital.


Many thing get buried when people shit up the bread with unnecessary stuff.


If you are tracking multiple aircraft wait a while and then post all the updates in one post.


Updating the Anons


Remember we are the 1st Recon Squadron & recon is our purpose.


When tracking I periodically check for global incidents using a number of sites see for links- >>1312191


If you spot something of particular relevance don't be afraid to post a general SITREP report to help keep the other anons aware of what is happening it might well be relevant to their digging.


The anons & concernfags sometimes pick-up on an alarmist tweet or news report & can tend to overreact.


If this happens check out the live threat maps to see if you can shed more light on the situation.


Occasionally if they start getting panicky or concerned an anon will ask us if we know anything about the situation - in this event try to be obliging and give them what raw facts you can find n the threat assessment sites.


Report what you see and not what you think is happening.

Sometimes a plane can be difficult and very uncooperative to track.


This is particularly so with the spoopy 2-#### planes, JSOC planes, and some other mainly military stuff.


In certain regions around the world such as Africa, Middle East, Caspian Sea, Oceanic areas & other remote areas/places tracking coverage can be non-existent, patchy, or unreliable.


To mitigate the problem slightly what you can do when tracking a problem plane is to watch and monitor other nearby aircraft travelling in the same speed/direction.


By following these other aircraft you can estimate the position of the 'missing' or 'uncooperative' aircraft.


If a flight plan is listed for the aircraft you can use this to plot the course & position & estimate where it might pop up again.


Often an aircraft will drop off one tracker system but will still show on another so try using an alternative tracker or two trackers at once.

2-#### PLANES


These aircraft are a bit of a bug bear with there spoopy behaviour. These are civilian planes registered in Guernsey and have managed to get 'Military' status, so that they can bypass customs and immigration (handy).


They all seem to be owned by shell companies, so many that some are like Russian dolls with lots of layers (designed to throw tax evasion investigators off).


It would help a lot if you can try and dig into the backgrounds of these aircraft.


So far we have only managed to scratch one off the list. This guy -




As far as we can tell he is all above board.


The captured flight profile shows a typical photomapping profile. The figure eight loops along his journey are where he has carried out a wind drift check to calculate wind speed & direction.


The zigzag part of the flight is where he is carrying out the mapping part of the flight gathering images/data to be put into maps or to be used for scientific study etc.


As we are pretty confident this guy is on the up & up there is no reason to track/capture this guy unless you spot him doing something odd that doesn't look like a recce/mapping profile.

I-SWIA, VQ-BVB, 4k - SW800, RA- 86563,


I'm putting these out for the Planefags to make note of, Silkway Cargo may be one of the ways that they are shipping weapons and other stuff around using Azerbaijan aircraft.

And from your tail numbers combined with Int'l aircraft prefixes:


VPB = Bermuda


EC = Spain


RA =Russia


4K = Azeraijan


I = Italy


VQ has two listings:


VQ-T = Turks/Caicos


VQ-H = Saint Helena/Ascension


Well freakin' done, Anon!!!

Aircraft Not Showing on the Map


Locating a plane that isn't on the map using latitude + longitude.




In the search bar paste the latitude + longitude from ADSB. (Delete the words but keep the degrees). Like so:


46.01642° 26.36403°


Comma separator works but is optional


Negative longitude is parsed correctly as west longitude. If your lat/long includes E or W Google maps can parse that as well.


Google maps can parse latitude and longitude in various formats including degrees/minutes/seconds, decimal degrees, etc.


Hit enter and locate your aircraft.

Here's my short list of "when to tag and bag" gleaned from the experience of our squad leaders.


What to Tag and Bag


Diverted/refused landing permission


Keeps flying <4000ft


Any drones and UAVs


Any P-8 Poseidons, P-3 Orions, other surveillance and intel planes such as Sentrys, Nightwatches, Sentinels, Joint Rivets


Any AWACS, Hawkeyes, Mercurys


Any MAGMA callsign – but don’t post until they have “feet wet” (over water) when returning after a mission. Don’t endanger their mission by premature posting.


If you suspect an operation, bag and tag it, but post it later; allowing special operators time to complete their mission.


And here's the beginnings of a spreadsheet I'm using to keep my head organized. This is by no means complete. Just adding aircraft as I learn about them from our squad leader. This is a couple of days worth. I expect this will get very long and welcome suggestions for additional columns of data we'd like to collect, like last sighting for example?

Medevac Helicopter Fagging


Sometimes we suspect medevac choppers are being used for extractions. Often these are type EC35 (Europcopter, Lakota) on which military pilots are trained. Also EC30, EC45.


You can often tell it's a medevac by the owner's name. Failing that, by a photo of the chopper; air ambulances are prominently marked.


When sorting medevacs the following Reg. No. suffixes are often chosen by medevac owners:


AM = Air Methods (co. name)


PH = Phi Air Med (co. name)


ME = MEdevac


MT = Med transport


LF = life flight


ER = emerg room


RX = med


MH = med helicopter.


We are compiling a list of known US medevac choppers. Attached list is just a first stab to get the list started.


Try ADSB with filters MIL=OFF, species=helicopter. When suspect is ID'd, click that chopper's flightaware link to open flightaware tracking.


Or try Flightradar24 with 1 filter, type=EC35. Use Multi-Select (upper right corner) to select up to 4 helicopter dots at once and display their ownership. Change settings to display either just Reg. No. or just Callsign. No-callsign "blocked" does not necessarily mean anything and if you change it to display to Reg. No., at least you can input that chopper's Reg. No. into flightaware for tracking.


On flightaware you can zoom into the map and actually see exactly where it lands and takes off, near a hospital, military base, residential address, middle of nowhere, etc. Chopper tracking often disappears a few hundred feet elevation before landing though. Watch the altimeter to decide if it's fixing to land and screencap before it disappears.


MedevacFagging is an advanced level of planefagging and it's definitely an acquired skill with a learning curve.


Hope this helps somebody.

Some help ID'ing civilian choppers in the US. List is far from complete.


Some suffixes often associated with medevac choppers:


AM = Air Methods (an owner's name)


PH = Phi Air Med (an owner's name)


ME = MEdevac


MT = Med transport


LF = life flight


ER = emerg room


RX = med


MH = med helicopter


I don't believe there is any formal requirement to use specific suffixes for medevacs; it's whatever the owner picks or can get. Glance down this list at the ones marked EMS and those are confirmed medevacs. Those not categorized in the list haven't been ID'd yet.


It's apparent that medevacs are not limited to Eurocopter 35, 135 or Lakota; other models are also in medevac service.


On ADSB, after clicking a chopper of interest, click the Flightaware link (CTRL-click to open a new tab if tracking many). Flightaware will keep tracking that specific chopper while you look around. You can set the map to satellite and zoom in and actually see if it's landing in a neighborhood, on a freeway, or in a hospital parking lot (well you can guess anyway). You can also scroll down below the map and see its recent flights; if medevac you may be able to determine where it's based (usually a regional or municipal airport) and whether it does fly to/from a hospital. Photos of the chopper can be helpful to determine if it's an air ambulance/EMS.

Unusual NASA aircraft


NASA has a large fleet of aircraft. Many are used for research & testing duties. They also have a sizeable collection of general transport types to fly employees from site to site.


The test & research types can often be seen flying strange patterns over Nevada S Cal or other places for general aerodynamic research or atmospheric research.

Blocked Call Sign Status


  1. I imagine that any aircraft can refrain from transmitting its callsign. Commercial flights want to be tracked so they will generally not do this. Some military flights evidently are under orders to keep a low profile and their ADSB is turned off or selectively enabled. There are numerous scenarios where an a/c will not transmit any callsign. Some of the radar sites designate this as "blocked".


  1. Ditto.


  1. Airspeed is a function of many factors. First, look up what kind of plane it is, then look up its specifications. The specs will give maximum speed and cruising speed, as well as max altitude and typical cruising altitude. ATC can tell an a/c what altitude to fly at for safety reasons (avoid collision) and a/c can also vary speed/altitude as necessary due to wind, weather, thunderheads, approach pattern, etc. You should understand the speed as a function of a/c capabilities and mission.


If you see a military Gulfstream or Citation flying at >500 knots at 42,500' you can probably assume they are in a hurry to get somewhere therefore it is an important flight to transport military brass.


Hope that helps.

We know that flight originate from military installations or regional airports, such as


Norfolk Chambers KNGU


Andrews Joint Base ADW


Manassas Field KHEF


Patuxent Naval Station NHK


Fort Lauderdale FLL


Jacksonville KNIP


Miami KMIA


Checking the Departure tables for these may provide a clue.


These and knowing the airlines used may help us find the transfer flights. Flights that have exec jet escort are also highly probable to have targets aboard.

KAF Recon Squad has narrowed down what to watch in regard to possible prisoner transfers to Guantanamo. These are the locations where we might expect to see medevac choppers along with possible military Blackhawk or military executive jet escorts acquiring prisoners or delivering them for further transport to Gitmo on the daily scheduled commercial flights.


I felt that KAF Recon Squad needed a better search algorithm to focus our limited resources on areas that are more likely to be productive, and this is what we came up with.


                  • -


Norfolk Naval Station - Chambers Field VA


Andrews Joint Base MD


Manassas Field VA


Patuxent Naval Station MD


Fort Lauderdale FL


Jacksonville FL


Miami FL




Chicago O’Hare IL


and DC


                  • -


We also need to check the arrival and departure tables for Gitmo, airport code NBW (=MUGM), regularly.


has free recent history only, so needs regular checking.


We also know there is or may be ongoing construction work at Gitmo. We located several construction bids for upgrading the Navy's wharf, construction of 13,000 units of "displaced persons housing" plus support personnel infrastructure, a legal complex including six SCIF sites for defense attorneys and their clients, and something about installing padding for the prison cells.


So we recognize that some of the daily flights could be related to that construction activity.


Hope the spreadsheet helps. Sometimes I need to organize my thoughts in writing when there is so much distracting chaos/energy on the general breads.

Some Anons were discussing a Northrop Grumman E-8 JSTARS aircraft yesterday. I thought it might help if I try to unravel some of these acronyms that the military use.


JSTARS - Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System


This aircraft is all about command and control, mixed with signals intelligence and target spotting. This aircraft can interact with other signals intelligence (SIGINT) aircraft like the Beech 300 MARSS.




Medium Altitude Reconnaisance and Surveillance System. This is a smaller aircraft that can be deployed in larger numbers to form a surveillance or command and control network, totally independent of any other communications systems except other aircraft such as JSTARS, TACOMO or Nightwatch.


E-6 Mercury TACOMO


TACOMO stands for TAke COmmand and Move Out. This is nicknamed "The Doomsday Plane" , as this is what would take over in a war situation if ground command posts are knocked out. This plane site at the top of the military communications tree.


E-4B Nightwatch


This the NCA's "Doomsday Plane". This plane is where the President, Secretary of Defense etc. could be if war had broken out and nuclear weapons were in play. Think of it as the White House in the air.


E-3 Sebtry (AWACS)


This plane is the Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft. These would be deployed off the coast to act as high-altitude radar stations during a conflict, to warn of inbound enemy aircraft and/or missiles. Sentries guard the perimeter, hence the name.


P-8 Poseidon


The premier sub-hunting aircraft. This plane took over from the older P-3 Orions as the long-range naval reconnaisance and patrol aircraft. Some P-3s are still out there, but they are being phased out.


If you want to know anything more about a particular aircraft, please post in here and we'll answer your questions.

JSOC - Joint Special Operations Command


JSOC (pronounced 'jaysock') was established in 1980 in the aftermath of the failed attempt by US Special Operations Forces to rescue American hostages held in Iran (Operation Eagle Claw).


JSOC is designed as a common command structure between Army, Air Force and Navy Special Operations elements. As can be deduced from its subordinate units, JSOC's current focus is thought to be counter terrorism. JSOC is a component of United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM or SOCOM)


JSOC - sometimes referred to as the National Mission Force - is based at Pope Air Force Base and at Fort Bragg, both of which are in North Carolina.


JSOC - Components


JSOC has the following units under its umbrella:


1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (Delta Force )


Regimental Reconnaissance Company (75th Ranger Regiment)


Intelligence Support Activity (ISA)


Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU) (SEAL Team 6)


24th Special Tactics Squadron


(USAF Combat Controllers / Pararescuemen)


When operating as part of a JSOC task force, attached supporting units such as elements of the 75th Ranger Regiment and the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment will fall under control of JSOC. Special Forces CIF companies may also be temporarily brought in for JSOC operations.


Lesser known JSOC components include:


Joint Communications Unit (JCU)


The Joint Communcations Unit (JCU) provides global signals support for JSOC operations. The JCU provides communication links between JSOC elements and, if needed, other parties. It is based at Fort Bragg but may deploy detachments in support of JSOC operations anywhere in the world. JCU communicators graduate from the Special Operations Radio Operators Course, a 6-month training program which teaches the required technical skills. The course also teaches advanced tactics, driving and marksmanship. JCU personnel may attend other military schools such as airborne training.


Aviation Tactics and Evaluation Group (AVTEG)


AVTEG analysises JSOC's avaiation needs, sources aircraft and provides highly skilled pilots. This secretive unit is believed to be organized into 3 battalions. Elements include, among others, an Air Logistics Division, Strike Warfare Division and a Rotary Wing Assault Operations Branch. AVTEG tested the stealth black hawk helicopters employed in the raid that killed Bin Laden.


66th Air Operations Squadron (66th AOS)


Based at Pope AFB, the 66th Air Operations Squadron flies C-130 and other transport aircraft in support of JSOC missions.


Technical Applications Program Office (TAPO)


Procures and deploys new technology for JSOC aviation elements. Such activities included fitting a special SIGINT collection package to RC-12 Guardrail aircraft operated by the ISA.


Ground Applications Program Office (GAPO)


Develops and fields technological programs in support of Delta Force and other JSOC elements.


JSOC Intelligence Brigade (JIB)


Stood up in 2008, the JSOC Intelligence Brigade analyzes intelligence from a wide variety of sources and desminates it throughout JSOC. The brigade features planning, interrogations and intelligence support divisions.


Other units that are either detached to or directly support JSOC include:




JSOC is provided Military Information Support Operations (MISO, previously known as PSYOPs) by a division within the Intelligence and Operational Security Directorate (ISOD).


Army Compartmented Element (ACE)


ACE is an United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) directorate involved with providing intelligence for Army special operations units. Within ACE is a unit known simply by its abbreviations, BI. This secretive cell is beleved to be staffed by undercover female intelligence collectors and interrogators.


Note: It has been rumoured that Delta Force has also been known as Army Compartmented Element (ACE). This confusion may have been the result of a deliberate effort to obscure any open source reference to one or both units, although it may simply be a case of someone seeing the ACE's listing in Fort Bragg's phone directory and assuming this was Delta Force's new cover name.

>moar background




>What if an aircraft owner does not meet FAA requirements?


>Foreign nationals and others who are not eligible for aircraft ownership under the FAA requirements may still be interested in registering their aircraft. For these individuals, establishing a trust is the best way to maintain FAA registration in the United States.


>What is an aircraft trust?


>An aircraft trust is set up to give the airplane ownership to a trustee who meets the FAA registration requirements on behalf of the true owner. In the trust, the true owner is known as the trustor or trust beneficiary. The title and registration are held in the trustee’s name. The FAA has access to aircraft trust filing paperwork, giving them the identity of the beneficiary.


>What are the advantages of a trust?


>Trusts are primarily set up when aircraft owners do not meet the requirements to register their airplane with the FAA. The FAA is widely accepted, and aircraft that maintain their registration generally have higher resale values.


>While FAA registration is the primary reason for aircraft trusts, they also might be set up for structural purposes, simplification purposes, or convenience. Whatever the reason, a trust can be maintained for an indefinite period of time.


>How does an aircraft trust work?


>A plane is placed in trust and the title of the aircraft is registered to the name of the trustee. The beneficiary of the trust owns a beneficial interest in the trust.


>All correspondence from the FAA goes to the Owner Trustee, who then forwards that information to the beneficiary.


>An operating or lease agreement is created between the beneficiary (or a separate 3rd party) and the trustee, giving the right to operate the aircraft back to the beneficial owner.


>The Operator is obligated to insure, maintain, and operate the aircraft in accordance with FAA requirements.


>The beneficiary can dissolve the trust at any time for any reason.


>The title can be transferred back to the beneficiary at any time, although they may not be able to maintain the FAA registration.


>The trustee cannot sell the aircraft without the beneficiary’s permission.


>The Trustee receives all correspondence from the FAA and passes it on to the beneficiary owner.

You can add this to the list of models worth following.


C-146A Wolfhound


Typically they use 'HOUND' 'DINGO' & 'MAGMA' callsigns.

They tend to live in the shadows and are usually spotted near Cannon AFB & Duke Field part of the Eglin AFB complex.


C-146A Wolfhound is a tactical transport aircraft designed and manufactured by Fairchild Dornier, for the US Air Force (USAF). The aircraft provides flexible, responsive and operational transportation of the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) personnel in the theatre.

Not a planefagger myself but ran into something the other day and wanted to bring it to the team's attention -


Working PF posted with a mention of a possible balloon as an aircraft type based on some factors (can't recall them noaw) but it didn't look right to me based on airspeed.


The target in question was above 14k (aka Flight Level or FL140) and going north at 230kts somewhere in the midwest (southern Iowa iirc).


I know you guys have to interpret the data and sometimes have to present speculation based on your logic and experience, and i have no issue whatsoever with that.


The reason why i disagreed kindly with PF is that the prevailing jetstream in that area is unlikely to be pushing aircraft northbound (meaning from about 345 to 015 heading.)


Air currents CAN push aircraft to some high speeds - i had a transcon flight arrive almost 2 hous early due to fat tailwinds one time. But it's not likely to veer far off the prevailing currents.


Anyhoo, my only point is that if you see flights re-routing or hauling butt, mebbe keep an eye on WX effects like storms, and what the winds aloft are doing.


I just don't think a balloon in the midwest is gonna do 235+ kts due north without serious weather help. Worth keeping in mind.


Y'all absolutely rock. Godspeed

MC-12W Liberty Spy Plane


The MC-12W Liberty aircraft is an intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft of the United States Air Force (USAF) acquired for Project Liberty. Project Liberty includes Operations Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Enduring Iraqi Freedom (OIF). OEF is the official name designated by the US government for its war in Afghanistan, while OIF is the official name for its war in Iraq.


An asset owned by the Joint Forces Air Component Commander, the aircraft’s key mission is to provide ISR services to the ground forces.


A medium-altitude manned vehicle, the MC-12W is based on the Hawker Beechcraft King Air 350 and King Air 350ER models, which are variants of the C-12 series. The aircraft is an augmentation of the two King Air models to include ISR capabilities.


The MC-12W has been procured as it can support all the Air Force’s irregular warfare mission needs.


The first combat mission of the MC-12W aircraft was undertaken on 10 June 2009. The aircraft was assigned to the airmen of the 362nd Expeditionary Reconnaissance Squadron Detachment 1 and the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing in Camp Liberty, Iraq. The first combat sortie took off from Joint Base Balad, Iraq at 2.30pm for a four-hour mission. At about 6.20pm local time the four member crew completed the sortie.


MC-12W programme


In April 2008, the US Secretary of Defense established a task force to identify and recommend solutions for increased ISR in the US Central Command’s (USCENTCOM) area of responsibility (AOR) in Project Liberty.


The task force recommended a solution that augmented the C-12 aircraft to suit ISR requirements. The C-12 aircraft are unmanned systems.


The USAF selected a total of 37 C-12 aircraft to be augmented based on the orders of the Secretary of Defense. Out of the 37 aircraft, eight are King Air 350s and the remaining 29 are King Air 350ERs.


These King Air 350s and 350ERs were modified for the USAF with equipment and technologies according to military requirement.


The augmented aircraft’s title was designated as MC-12W, ‘M’ being prefixed to denote that the aircraft is a multirole version of the C-12 series of the Department of Defence.


MC-12W Liberty intelligence gathering


The MC-12W is designed to intensify data collection operations through intelligence-collection capabilities operating in-theatre, allowing real-time full-motion video and signals intelligence for battlefield decisions of military troop leaders.


A fully operational MC-12W would comprise sensors, a ground exploitation cell, line-of-sight and SATCOM data links, as well as a robust voice communications suite. It would have manpower sufficient for 24hour deployed operations.


The first eight aircraft would have an MX-15i system with an infra-red pointer, which would allow the aircraft to signal an object or building to a soldier wearing special goggles on the ground. Further upgrades would provide the aircraft with a state-of-the-art laser designator to target a position with formidable precision.


The overall length and height of the MC-12W are 46ft 8in and 14ft 4in respectively. It has a wingspan of 57ft 11in and covers a wing area of 310ft². The maximum take-off weight of the aircraft is 15,000lb (augmented 350 version) and 16,500lb (augmented 350ER version).


The MC-12W can carry two pilots and two sensor operators.

RC-12X Guardrail


he US Army has awarded Northrop Grumman a $750 million contract external link for life cycle services on the service’s Special Electronic Mission Aircraft fleet. 75 fixed-wing airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance planes will be covered under the agreement, including RC-12X Guardrail, the Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance Surveillance System and Airborne Reconnaissance Low variants. The period of performance is one year, with eight one-year options, and work to be carried out includes program management, systems engineering and modification, supply chain management, and aircraft modifications and elective upgrades. King Aerospace, Inc. and M1 Support Service will also participate in work under the contract.


They’re derived from Hawker-Beechcraft’s popular King Air B200 twin-prop planes, and they look like a dog that just finished chasing a family of porcupines. Their specialty is intercepting enemy communications, and snooping on electronic emissions. At one time, these light “RC-12 Guardrail” aircraft were one of the 3 electronic eavesdropping and surveillance planes slated for replacement by the joint Army-Navy Aerial Common Sensor (ACS) jet, after many years of service in remote trouble spots and large-scale wars around the globe. Now, they’re getting a new lease on life.


The $8 billion ACS program’s suspension, “back to square one” delay, and joint status uncertainties, have turned the Guardrails into a critical asset that need to continue serving. That requires performance improvements and modernization of their electronics to match a quickly-evolving field. To that end, long-standing Guardrail fleet prime contractor Northrop Grumman Corporation has been asked to create the latest entry in the Guardrail family.


The first RU-21 Guardrail aircraft were introduced in 1971, and the role has passed through a number of variants. The most common at present is the RC-12N Guardrail Common Sensor (System 1), delivered in 1992-93. A total of 15 were converted, and 1 was lost in an accident to leave a fleet of 14.


The 9 RC-12P Guardrail Common Sensor (System 2) planes have different mission equipment, including datalink capabilities, fiber optic cabling, and smaller and lighter wing pods. They entered service in 1998. The 3 derivative RC-12Q Direct Air Satellite Relay planes were modified in order to expand the other RC-12Ps’ ability to stay within communications coverage. Hence the notable dome on the top of those aircraft. They were delivered in 2000.


Under this contract, Northrop Grumman will continue upgrading and enhancing about half of this fleet of 27, bringing 14 Guardrail aircraft to the RC-12X version and extending their operational lives to 2025.


That's why I saw RAIL701 flying test flights out of McClellan.

Anons, not trying to slide anything going on right now, but I just got a Text from a Friend at work. He's a Normie, but slowly waking up. We had a discussion about Chem-Trails a while back, and I explained the difference. Pics Related.


As you can see from the Photo, one, possibly two Heavy Aircraft just dropped a huge Chem-Trail just NW of FT Huachuca, over the West UAV Range, NE of the Black Tower TUAS Facility. The area under this Trail is the Elgin Area of Southeastern Arizona. He called them Contrails, but note how long they are hanging around. The Aircraft initially tracked from the NNW to SSE, then make a left turn, head N, then another left turn to the NW, and initiate a climb. Once they are established, they begin a right turn, and maintain climb, until they are above the light cloud deck, heading North.


This is VERY obvious fuckery. They didn't even try to hide it! Possibly a malfunction in the Aircraft? I tried to see something on ADSB, but nothing, probably had their ADSB Transponders off. What the actual fuck! I'm pissed! I just read yesterday a Post from an Anon saying that Trump has pretty much quashed all the Trailing, and that the Anon had experienced clear Skies for over a month now. We've also had pretty clear Weather here in this area, despite Monsoon Season setting in. This is blatant fuckery, and finally, no one can argue that this is NOT a Contrail, and that Chem-Trail Spraying is alive and well!


Is there another dedicated PF Page for these kind of sightings, as opposed to the Q&A? Not trying to spam here, but Posting to /qresearch or /qrb doesn't seem to attract much attention. The shills in /qresearch had posted 116 posts by the time I composed this and got it uploaded. Thanks in advance.

Then I assume it's motorized, because it was heading due N at @ 235kts IAS in roughly southern Iowa, iirc. I remember that it didn't fit the profile of a non-powered A/C becuz it was headed N at FL140-ish. That's not the normal jetstream in that neck o the woods.


Or am I mistaken? 235kts seems high for a balloon, especially that hdg/alt/location.

It could also be a Communications Relay Balloon, used my MIL for Secure Comms Relay.


When with the Marines as a TUAS Contractor (Tech-Rep), they were using them to extend Ground Comms between AO's.. Once, I watched as one was launched and a couple of hours later, it was at 120k MSL. They partially de-gassed it, and brought it back to 80k MSL and it just stayed in that area.. over Big Bear, as there are really no winds to speak of at that altitude. The Box attached has very long Foil Antennas for Tx/Rx. When the mission is finished, they deflate the Balloon, and eject the Box, which parachutes to earth. Sounds like the one you're seeing got caught in the Jet-stream, and the CC Ground Station perhaps lost link, and now its a run-away? Who knows..

Well that's kinda my underlying point. Pretty sure the jetstream doesn't run due north there, much less strong enough to push a balloon to a speed of 235kts at 14000 feet. Do you see what I mean?


Which leads to my overall point - helps to look at the winds aloft data to determine if it's a balloon or powered aircraft. The one i saw reported as a balloon most likely wasn't.

non q question, but i thought i'd take advantage of specialist knowledge here on something that's puzzled me for years

happened back in the 90s in canada. living on an acreage, had just driven up to garage and saw small dark chopper flying quite low, maybe 8 to 10 feet up. it seemed to barely fly higher than the young apple tree it flew over. was approx 50 to 60 feet distant from garage. seemed as though the back door was open and someone crouching in the opening. chopper flew on, which took it out of view behind garage and house. raced around end of garage to regain view (so, a few seconds) but chopper was not to be seen, though still audible. landscape was such that if it had landed, it would be in view, but it wasn't. looked higher, no chopper. went back to front of house, still heard it but couldn't see it at any elevation. sound of chopper finally faded away but was never again in view.


there had been an armed bank robbery in a nearby town earlier that day with suspects fleeing. when i first saw the chopper i thought maybe they were doing a ground search. it was all a little spoopy. has anyone had similar experience of very low flying craft just disappearing from view?


oh, the next day in a different nearby town, i saw 4 dark green or black copters flying overhead in a diamond formation. would really appreciate anons' thoughts on this. no alcohol or other recreational substances were involved, kek.

Sounds like a military helicopter conducting nap-of-the-earth ultra low altitude training exercise.

Most probably a UH-1 Huey, British Lynx or Puma, or a UH-60 Blackhawk.

Crouching figure would be the crewman/door gunner.

Attack/recce helicopters like hiding behind trees etc to hide from their potential targets.

They are relatively slow and pretty noisy so their best means defence is to use the terrain to avoid being seen.

Sounds like it did a pretty good job of avoiding being seen by you.

A lot of this goes on around the huge Suffield training area in Alberta and probably other areas of Canada too.

anon, thank you so much for replying, and i finally have an answer after all these years. that video showed the type of low altitude flying it was doing, and we and all surrounding properties were farmland like in the vid.

honestly none of the models you mentioned really looked like what i saw but then i was able to search for attack recce copters and the md 500 seems to be it.

this was back in southern ontario and we surely had some bases, but local rumour had it that there was an underground US base a bit northwest of our location.

thanks again, anon!

Hello Q,

The hardest thing for most people here is to ASK FOR HELP..

We are asking questions but we are asking the wrong questions...

We are about to have first contact.

they are coming, you can bet on it.

AI means you can implant our conscious into another body.

If aliens exist the best way to meet us at first is through a body of the most trustworthy person. JFK.

We lack patriotism.. we lack hope. We need your help Q.

We need you to help us arrest all of these evil people.. I know your up there.. in space... waiting for us to show you we are ready.

I am ready. I'm not scared.. i don't need anything else but you to show yourself now. You can meet me if you want I'm not scared of you. I have dreamt it since I was a kid.

I wish that you can resurrect JFK jr. I know he died now i believe that but Q was willing to give Picard a wish.. he turned it down..


I tried to do the right thing in the wrong way... but now i know

I just kept asking questions...


So please i beg you resurrect JFK Jr. and make him JFK. We need hope again. A voice.. like my voice which is being silenced... NO MORE.







you chose JFK Jr. because he was like me.. searching for answers in his life.. trying to fill big shoes.. not sure he can... BUT HE COULD.. and the deep state took that from him.

I live in the vicinity of Selfridge AFB on the socialist side of the fence. I see afterburner trails from different planes regularly, and plenty of commercial aircraft as well. From where I live it's easy to observe. As of this year, I've seen an afterburner trail that I've never seen before, where it completes the Arc of the sky from end to end. Am I wrong, or is this something unusual? Sure seems to me something would have to be burning pretty fast believe afterburner Trail across the entire Arc of the

Intro to Planefaggin

Welcome to the Kekistan Air Force (KAF) Recon Squad!!!


This is provided as a way to help you get started with tracking AC's

Tracking AC is vital to seeing and being able to paint a picture of habbenings across the world.

Planefaggin can track any given Aircraft, Military or Commercial (military assuming it's transponder is turned on and transmitting) and if you have an idea of who uses which AC (traceable by it's registration or tail #) the mystery of who travels where and when can have some light shed on it. You should have a basic interdast in AC's and a healthy appetite for learning moar about them. I know so much moar about our military since I began doing the pf reports on 8chan in early 2018-was still fairly raw at that so I jumped in on the commercial side and started tracking the AC's that were coming from central america (with one below it using the same call sign) prior to the 2018 election and also part of the on-going caravan saga.. Had several planefags be moar than gracious back then to help me get over that hump of "wut am I looking at here?" and correct any mistakes that I made. Ty to those that were helpful and patient.


This will give a basic overview on applying your newly acquired planefaggin' skillzzz and assist in effectively communicating your input to the board(s). It is not a how to use ADS-B (or the other platforms) guide. Link to ADS-B and other plattys below.


The best advice I can give on your screen caps is take the time to document them correctly. This means writing up your "find" with some basic information that highlights the cap you have placed. In order to easily retrieve these caps (at a later date) you should come up with a nomenclature to use across all AC's you have capped-see below for example.


This takes a little time to get proficient with as your overall level of patience will determine how good you become at it. A common reaction to finding something to report is to say "wow I need to get that in NOW" but having some patience is KEY to being good at this. Many times I've seen a cap show up in general with no description whatsoever and left on it's own. This is no good to anyone as most people just scroll over it-why should they stop if it's just a cap of some plane going somewhere?? This is how some started to rag on planefags by using those poor examples to paint every planefag with the same brush. This is not something you can "teach" as it requires getting into the platform and DOING IT. It is also good practice to let something develop prior to reporting it-except a slam dunk of a major figure departing in a easily identifiable AC.


Familiarizing yourself with the buttons and various options is key to being a great planefag. I use very little of the maps and automated functions as I prefer old school eyes to arrive at muh decisions. Doesn't make me right or my way of doing correct-it werks for me YMMV

This will mean you make problem this habbens to anyone who is on a learning curve. However I cannot guarantee you won't get shit for it in general-you won't in MNR that is for sure. If you have any questions on this please feel free to ask here or in QRB-spend plenty of time here each day so it will get answered if I have one to give.

For example

The name of your cap should have the information described below in the file name otherwise you will be sitting there wondering "did that Nightwatch go to Offutt AFB or Wright-Patterson on it's last trip? Easily found if you save them like this:

ORDER66 USAF E-4B Nightwatch that departed Offutt AFB, Omaha is on final approach to Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton 1031am pst 021321

By using a standardized file name you can easily search for any of those terms in your meme folders. It does take a few extra minutes as you are basically typing in the same information for your crumb with the cap and one for the file name saved as.


Identifying AC's

The easy ones are POTUS, VP, Sec of State and Defense as they all use specific call signs or in the Secretries case(s) they have used the same tail #'s (registrations) for many years. Examples: Sec of State uses a 757 with tail #98-0002 (cap #2) and when the Sec of Defense travels it is in the Nightwatch E-4B with tail #75-0125 (cap #3)

It's not always easy to tell just who is on what AC at what point as there are many things not seen during stops. passenger(s) depart/arrive, crew changes refueling or not etc.

A good pf report should have the following information:

Callsign (use the tail # if the pilot has not used-sometimes they get lazy and type 123456 or ABCDE, XXXXX, 00000000 etc.)


Military affiliation

AC type (747, E-4B, P-8 Poseiden, C-32A-military designation for 757, G (Gulfstream) 5, C-40B military for 737 etc)


Departure Airport if you click on the history button located at the top left under the AC type display you can find out where it came from on prior days. This is important as you build your knowledge of when and where all the different types of AC's move around.


Arrival Airport as your knowledge grows you can predict where it is going in some cases.

The Special Air Mission or SAM flights on the east coast are pretty standard but also have surprises. The USAF Special Operations Command 757's (C-32B's) also are somewhat predicatable although some recent new destinations have appeared. You start to get an idea of who goes where and when. Any additional information that you have on weather or possible connections to current habbenings are also good additions. This is your place to shine-as you gather knowledge and experience you'll get to the point where it will take you just a few minutes to get the "lay of the land" on what is habbening AC-wise. It can be intimidating to see a few thousand AC's on your screen and not habs any idea of where to start.


The best place to start is on the front end of ADS-B:

That brings you to the splash page and clicking on the "ADSBX Radar View''' button it will give you two choices "Tracking Map" and "Map Help". Please go to "Map Help" for a general overview of functions and features prior to opening up "Tracking Map". Or if your bandwidth allows you can open up both at same time.

Cap #1 is basic functions and taken from ADS-B and is the same as "Map Help" for the most part.

Once you become familiar with the functions it is MUCH easier to navigate the platform.


Some of the AC tracking sites use filed flight plans based on where it should be at a given time point-this was pointed out in January 2020 when the Iranians shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet just after Salami was 404'd. Some sites reported it still flying because of the flight plan progress reported it that way not the actual data transmitted. Using ADS-B make sthat a non-issue.


A basic overview of ADS-B-cap#2

Using Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast or ADS-B

A flights position is found using the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and by using ADS-B transmitters. The AC's information on flight position and speed is sent to the ADS-B ground receivers and also tramsmitted to nearlby AC. It is usually transmitted every second however this is limited to area operated in and there are several "dead" zones due to low ground receivers and also topography. The upper central plains, western Pennsylvania and the southwest desert area including eastern CA and southern AZ and NM to name a few.


I use this as a backup in case ADS-B is down or has server issues:

PlaneRadar.RU-it defaults to Russian language so you'll need to go to the menu area to reset that option.

Some back up sites (don't use much if at all),-0.12/8

Potential Scenario for seeing a legitimate AF1 call sign, Not AF1 Joe and THAT moment of major shit going down


2 parts: 1) dealing with the USA Corporation and 2) potential wtf moment pf sees as a possibility to mark it-Q drop #35


AF1 call sign usage Not AF1 Joe and POTUS

The increased activity of the E-4B Nightwatch AC's over the last few weeks (plus TIMMY's 3 flights on 0407) has got me thinking about wut scenarios we could see with finally having some major (overt and seeable by all) habbenings. 0408 yet another TIMMY01 flight and that hooked up with 09-0015 C-32A for a short period of time over KY and W.VA. These 757's have not had much time put on them since late last year and they need to be flown or they, like all AC, do not do well when sitting and not active.


Here is the meat for the first issue...we may have not seen an AF1 call sign because the Corporation known as the USA may have been totally dissolved and since there would technically be nothing to be "in charge" of there would be no real President and the call sign not used. Remember they have still used AF2 for Kneepads and EXEC1F for Flauxtus which is S.O.P. so this is wut sorta throws a "wrench" in this at present. Joe has never had AF1 as a call sign...not on the 747 and not on the 757 however POTUS has not used it since March 2020 (trip to Charlotte, NC and back for Rally on 0302-cap#3 ) it was used for the India trip the week prior as well. After that I have no documented caps of it's use-I saw a call go out on soc. media for an example but have yet to see one.


Musings on the Corporation and AF1


POTUS returned from the India trip in late February (early on the 26th to be precise). About 3 weeks later we had the rumblings about the Federal Reserve being sucked into the Treasury Dept. I have never thought that this really occurred as the piece that started all this "The Fed's Cure Risks Being Worse Than the Disease'' *was fairly descriptive as to why the FED did not directly buy the crap it wants off the market-the Treasury has to do it because the FED is not allowed to do this by law (laws get ignored when shit habbens and they have done it at the FRBNY for many years because you wouldn't need a trading desk if you were not active in the mkts). To summarize the Treasury sets up the SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle) and it is funded by the Federal Reserve. The ESF (Exchange Stabilization Fund is the Treasury's arm of manipulation) is used to facilitate the Treasury "purchasing" assets. See the link below for moar detail on the ESF.

Since by now they own about 2/3rds of the entire Treasury market it was wildly successful for the primary dealers and the management of those institutions.


America's Darkest Secret: The Exchange Stabilization Fund


This is total speculation as I do not think the the Treasury has officially sucked up the FED as many believed at the time-the action that POTUS did do was to formalize the Treasury Sec (at the time Munchkins) responsibility as a cabinet level position to oversee the Federal Reserve moar closely. This already existed in a way as Treasury Sec. is already a cabinet-level position but it puts some eyes on it at the very least as the FRB is and has always been a private corporation sitting on private land and answerable to literally no-one except it's Rothy backed overlords. It does not mean that any of it was really done -the extra oversight for Treasury over FED. Since when has following the rules been very popular for them?

Let's look ahead a little with regards to the AF1 issue we have seen and why we could mebby see it as a marker in the future .

Also some additional information on AF2 and it's dual use on 0322 in the next crumb


The current 747's used by the 89th Airlift Wing are tail #'s 82-8000 and 92-9000.

89th Airlift Wing

The SAM flights fall under this as the 99th Airlift Squad

Not AF1 Joe has also used the 757 in his trips to Wilmington, DL although they have since started using Marine One for that on a few instances. Notably the day that Joe bailed early from Philadelphia and yours truly caught this by observing the tanker assigned as mobile filling station already over the "Joe is in Delaware" position. This was on March 16th-cap#2 and the schedule was changed on the nightly update to show he did , in fact, leave early but the original schedule stayed the same and reflected an interview held in a Philadelphia location.

Total bullshit as Joe left at least 2.5 hours early and was already in Wilmington when said interview was taking place. The new schedule stated it occurred in Wilmington-these are all taped prior imo so it matters not where fauxtus is.

He also left early on 0402 when he was supposed to be delivering remarks about the jobs #'s-the tanker was there before those remarks officially began so again taped and Joe bailed to Camp David.


Tail # 92-9000 747

Not AF1 Joe has used tail # 82-8000 and not #92-9000 747. . the last cap I have of 92-9000 being used at all was on Nov. 30th for a trip to Lackland AFB, San Antonio-cap#1. I have not seen it on a test and or cert./maintenance flight since that time. It has simply vanished from use. Lackland does work on these big AC's so it could be there being upgraded. This AC also could have been moved at any time with the transponder turned off so there is always that to consider-they only let us see what they want us to see and no moar.


PF has also noticed increased activity from the E-4B Nightwatch AC's-specifically TIMMY01 on 0407 with three flights plus in the last few weeks these have been moving around to and from Lincoln Muni Airport, Wright-Patterson AFB, Robins AFB, Barksdale AFB, Dyess AFB, Seymour Johnson AFB -all normal locations for these to arrive and depart from. What is different is the increased frequency of these flights. Whereas you may have see one move every few days or every other day ftm they are now moving several times a day and sometimes have two at one location but not for very long. I am really thinking that these AC's moving around with this frequency is a sign of bigger habbenings coming-see next.

This is where the speculative nature of planefaggin' comes in. The Not AF1 Joe issue has been beaten up so much it is hardly notable any longer -but needs to be kept track of.

What if we finally see an AF1 call sign and it is used by the vanished from use Tail #92-9000??


Since Not AF1 Joe has never used this AC what if it is being held back for the proper POTUS to return under a new system. Using AF1 would technically still not be correct but you would need to gradually introduce this. Just think if AF1 suddenly appeared after all this non-use what would be the reaction? I know wut it would be for anons......


The logistical arrangements for this would be tough to pin down and since there are so many ways for POTUS to travel I could not possibly begin to suss that out legitimately. From DUMBs(Mar-a-lago has one) to the "secret" high-speed rail system available to (((them))) plus the option to travel in virtually any AC without attracting too much attention the possibilities are many. There are so many permutations for this it is best left for a time when it can be verified. OTOH we may have seen clues for it and have not recognized them-I never discount anything with this.

Drop #35 seems wholly appropriate for this

A little on AF2: Kneepads has NOT used or utilized what was known as primary AF1-tail# 98-0001.


In fact, it falls into the same category as 747 #92-9000 as in not seen or used since 0117 for Pence and Second lady trip to Fort Drum, NY-cap#1 on way back to JBA

I cannot confirm this 100%; however, I have not seen 98-0001 much if at all.

Again these AC's can move without the transponders turned on so I am going on wut I have seen


On 0322 we had an instance of two confirmed usages of on a G5 that headed west to Peterson AFB and on the 757 that kneepads used to travel to Jacksonville Int'l and back to JBA. The AF2 G5 had an overnight at Peterson AFB and then arrived at Huntsville Int'l for a very short ground stop on 0323 and then back to JBA. That particular AC tail #97-0400 was also used as the replacement AF2 for kneepads prior trip to LAX as the 757 had a mechanical issue so that was flown out overnight to accommodate the trip to Denver-cap #3. The press had to use a freezing cold C-17 to travel from LAX to DIA that day-kek


Now watch them take out 92-9000 right after this is posted

Korean AF KAF001 747 on descent for Atlanta Int'l Airport from JBA depart


Korean President Set to Visit SK Plant in Georgia This Weekend


South Korean President Moon Jae-in is scheduled to visit Georgia this weekend to survey progress on the SK Innovation electric-vehicle battery plant, according to Korean sources. The visit will come after Mr. Moon’s summit with President Joe Biden in Washington Friday, where the leaders are expected to discuss a range of issues from North Korean denuclearization and Chinese aggression to economic cooperation. That last priority has been amplified in recent months here in Georgia, where the largest-ever foreign investment was threatened with closure due to a legal feud between Korean battery giants LG Energy Solution and SK. The dispute was settled in April when SK agreed to pay $1.8 billion to LG, prompting a sigh of relief from officials in Georgia, where at least 2,600 jobs and $2.6 billion were on the line.

Some stuff about AF1 and AF2


Joe is AF1 for the first time....we still had Kneepads who departed twice from JBA on Sunday without AF2 as a call sign. Imma guessing that over the last week or longer some negotiations were held (on wut topic idk for sure..not there) but speculating that the AZ audit result is grinding on to expected release on June 14th-Flag Day and 45's B-day so that could very well have been the subject -there are many right? The keeper of the call sign (or higher up most likely) didn't like the answers they got so kneepads left on Sunday w/o AF2 and did not get it back until last night-see crumbs below


Kneepads leaving on Sunday without AF2call sign (was SAM462) and only getting back last night tells me that something was agreed to yesterday and the call sign was returned to kneepads on the trip back from Mexico CIty. It was categorically NOT AF2 on last nights departure-still SAM462...See here >>61310, >>61344, >>61375 pb


Those crumbs have the caps and backup for the trip that started so poorly on Sunday for Kneepads having to return to JBA-at no time was it ever AF2..not on the first depart(Middle Cap on .. >>61375 pb) nor the second. Both departs for her and those stupid cookies were SAM462 and SAM471 was the AC that had the problem and forced both to return


Obviously if kneepads call sign restored then we had the answer this morning as to whether that would apply to Not AF1 did. >>61437 pb


Also interdasting that they chose to use 09-0017 C-32A SAM46 as the escort AC and not the other 747 tail #92-9000 which is still MIA btw.


The other missing AC is tail #98-0001 as used as primary AF2 for many years-prior to 45/Pence.

Joe Returned from Geneva Int'l yesterday and the 747 departed as AF1-see cap #2 for all the AC's departing Geneva yesterday-but when he got to this side 'o da pond it had reverted back to 82-8000

As mentioned above Joe departed as AF1 from JBA so this habs nothing to do wit international airspace etc.

Joe's Performance was given a rating on the trip back yesterday judging by the lack of AF1 call sign upon return to JBA


Joe is Not AF1 again.

pf housekeeping-Flauxtus not using EXEC1F call sign

Kept the trace for this flight up to check where it went last night.


Never saw SAM895 (see below) again but SAM792 was visible after it's takeoff from Elmendorf-see Cap#2 for both arriving at Elmendorf yesterday and no EXEC1F call sign on either


SAM792 USAF C-32A on ground at Yokota AB after Elmendorf ground stop/refuel


See cap #3 for Flauxtus departing a C-32A and neither of the AC's that departed JBA and arrived at Anchorage displayed the EXEC1F call sign that is used for these trips with Flauxtus


This AC departed JBA yesterday along with SAM895 heading nw to Anchorage-JB Elmendorf-cap#2


Flauxtus headed to Japan for the Olympics yesterday as well but I could not find any AC with the EXEC1F (normal call sign for her or family members using these AC's) so one of these two AC's must be Flauxtus


Looks like we have another addition to what is muh call sign?


EXEC1F has been used extensively for Flauxtus in the past



This information regarding SAM792 as Flauxtus and Not Exec1F is confirmed as the second AC SAM895 has nao departed JB Elmendorf and heading es
