BOE876 From Mite To W260?

Sat Feb 17, 2007 2:42 am

At http://www4.passur.com/sjc.html, put 15:47 on 14 Feb into the box and zoom out to 40 miles. At 15:48 up in the NE corner of the screen BOE876, a 747-400, passes a couple miles south of Tracy, WNWward, bound from MITE to W260.

W260 is a Warning Area, maybe? But what's MITE?

It's the LCF N747BC testing out of Edwards AFB. MITEL is a posrep and W260 I imagine is an airway. Look up BOE876 on flightaware and you'll see plenty of oddities over the past week or so.
