led services use "Speedbird' whilst ad-hoc charters that are GSS contracts use the "Jet Lift" call signs.
I saw and heard (both engine sound and radio communications on 129.10) G-GSSD for the first time last night as it flew over my house in Northern Ireland at 22:14Z heading for the atlantic at FL300. Flight number was BAW 3573 and call sign was Speedbird 3573. The aircraft was actually routing FRA
and was strangely followed by a Lufthansa Cargo MD
-11 also routing FRA
to the USA, might have also been ATL
. I wonder why BAWC is competing with GEC out of FRA
instead of airports on its own doorstep? I know STN
is normally used.
