Four rotating switches that each have to be turned to the individual number, then a separate button pushed if you're hitting IDENT, which highlights your code on the screen.
There is no abnormal behavior from WestJet flight #2154. We expect it to land shortly in Puerto Vallarta.
Contrary to internet rumour, air traffic control has confirmed #WS2154 is “squawking” standard transponder code, not 7500.
#WS2154 has landed in Puerto Vallarta and arrived at its gate on schedule.
Captain confirms by phone that #WS2154 has arrived safely at its destination. The crew did not squawk “7500” as reported.

I wonder why the Pentagon was so quick to pipe up with that apparently unconfirmed info that the pilots accidentally squawked ... now the blame is on the website changing the codes?
Seems a little weird.
