Hi all. I was at YVR doing plane watching around 2000 on March 21/09. I had my scanner on. While listening, I heard someone taking permission of some sort, can't remember exact sentence but she mentioned "..... as per free range agreement". What is that?

Thanks

btw, at around 2100 I was spotting 26R when I saw a green flash. Couple seconds later approaching Air Canada pilot mentioned seeing some green flash to ATC. Later on ATC told other approaching planes to watch out for green laser. Really Weird...

What you heard might be one of many wildlife truck that drive around chasing birds. They get free range clearance so the do not have to call every time the move. They must hold short of the runway and give way to aircraft. They call in every 6 hrs on their 12 hour shift to remind the controllers they are still out there.

That could very well be the case, bird control at AMS uses powerful green lasers to scare of birds.



Nothing's worse then flying the same registration twice, except flying it 4 times..

Is it used in Canada for that specific purpose?
