All Airplanes Inbound To AMS Squawking 1000

Sat May 16, 2015 6:28 pm

Early this morning, every airplane enroute to AMS was squawking 1000. What is the reason for this?

It is the Mode S conspicuity code. It is given to mitigate shortage of squawk codes. ATC gets your identity from your downlinked flight identification instead of the usual unique squawk code.
I'm sure this thread will take off soon

Jus to elaborate on AIRWALK's comment...

It's not just into AMS. Many airspaces in Europe use Mode S #1000 and the Mode-S ID is used for correlation in our systems.
