'Tristar' Call-sign?

Sun Feb 09, 2003 7:00 am

I was listening to Ch9 on a UA flight Sunday and heard a plane use that for a call-sign. Any idea who?

*Tristar Air* * TRY * *Tristar Airlines, Inc. - United States of America*

DC-10

Did it have a flight number of an aircraft registration with it?

It could have been a privately operated L-1011. Although that might go with "Lockheed", but there's no hard and fast rule there.

I'de say I was around Toronto. He said 'Tristar123' . It had numbers like a flight,not a reg. Also,if it was a L1011,he should have said November123heavy.

United Fan....

Not necessarily, the "November" is usually dropped. Except for the initial call to ATC, most pilots will shorten their callsign to the Aircraft type and the last 3 letters/numbers of the reg.......Center, Boeing 9 Quebec Seirra blah blah blah"......instead of using the full callsign each time....."Boeing November 1-2-9 Qubec Sierra" each time.
