Didn't think there are any more F-86s flying in Europe. The last and most recent one was G-SABR that has gone to stateside a while back now??!!

No F-86's at Stansted, not since the Airwork hangars closed...

Controllers are simple creatures and we get very excited when strange and exotic aeroplanes turn up. However, most of the time we live in perpetual disappointment as yet another 737 or 319 rattles past.

Some aircraft Mode S transponders don't respond correctly to interrogator pulses from the radar. These issues are well known and there are several specific transponders that are affected. As a result, those aircraft should have Mode A/C reporting enabled at all times.

I don't use FR24 but I suspect they might use a combination of Mode S addressing and ADS-B? The latter is notoriously unreliable and very dependent on airframe fit.
