Canadian CYR

Sat Jun 07, 2003 1:36 pm

I was listening to Seattle Center eariler today, and i guess one of the controllers noticed an aircraft called "Canadian CYR" (if I remember right) on their screen. He of course, called out to it, and it did respond. The controller asked what his destination was, and it was interesting what he responded with. He said "either 00EB or OOEB". The controller said the computer isn't accepting any of those and then asked "Do you know where you are currently?". Canadian CYR said he's near the airport in Aloha, Oregon. (probably refering to KHIO). I did lookup OOEB, which corresponds with Butabul, Oman. Couldn't find anything on Canadian CYR though. Any ideas?

It is very likely that it was a GA airplane. Canadians use letters on aircraft registrations (ie C-FABC), while Americans use numbers (ie N123AB). When flying in the US, American ATC will quite often refer to the Canadian aircraft as "Canadian ABC", or in the above case, "Canadian CYR".

Thanks, that clears up the callsign. Thought the ATC was saying the plane was a CRJ.
