Similar Registration And/or Flight Numbers?

Sun Dec 31, 2006 7:48 am

Has anyone here flown on the same frequency or near another A/C that had a similar registration or flight number, and at the same time?

From my own experience:
Just yesterday (my first solo BTW):
my A/C: N5215E
other A/C: N5315E
We were both flying the traffic pattern at GAI.

An old friend of mine has a T-28 and a Harvard one is C-GMWV the other is C-FMWV. Also a plane i am flying up in YLW is GSKK, while one i used to fuel up quite a bit at ZBB was GZKK.

This has happened a few times to me:

-Been on US' N749US twice, on two different airplanes! I took the 727 in the mid-90s & was on the A319 a couple years ago.
-Been on N652DL (DL 757) & N652RW (S5 E-170).
-Been on N625CA (OH CRJ), N625VJ (US 757) & N625DL (DL 757)
-Been on N904DL and N904DE (DL MD-88s)
-Been on N919RW (NW DC-9) and N919DE (DL MD-88). I also flew N68919, which is a Cessna 152, a number of times during PPL training.

On a FAR-MSP connecting to MSP-SEA flight I took on Northwest in October 1999, the FAR-MSP flight was on A319 N305NB and MSP-SEA on A320 N305US.

Also, the airline for whom I work has at various times, perhaps even now, had flight numbers that are the same as the departure time, such as flight number 452 departing at 4:52pm.
