Is the drone flying inside the cabin of an unmarked/untracked aircraft?

EDIT- Ah, I see this possibility has been mentioned and discussed.

I stand corrected now, the N# search is up and running odd how it wasn’t a few days ago.
Even more odd how the DJI is registered with its very own N#. This will clog up the available numbers for future aircraft owners.

Edit anyways, you can program any Mode S Transponder with ADSB out with an N number and it will show up on ADSB tracker, illegal on a filed flight plan, yes, if not then as of now a grey area until the 2020 mandate of asdsb out.

Edit again, some pilot that was bored or didn’t want people knowing where he was going probably plugged in 12345 on his Transponder not knowing it’s actually a registered drone, thinking he was sly on the fly.

Had a thought.
If that pilot was using a registered Drone N# transponder code and took off from Orange County Airport.
Why did Air Traffic Controllers not shut the airport down and report it to the authorities?

He flew less than 3 to 5 miles of at least 2 other airports at times. I live within 5 miles of an airport and am not permitted to fly a toy drone. It's the "No Drone Zone"

Just a thought if pilots can just set a code so cavalier like.

I’d like to know that answer too. If he used this N# over the radio to atc and not his real N# of his aircraft he could be in trouble, also ATC most likeley wouldn’t be aware of the Drone registration as normally all they see is just the N#, speed and altitude. ATC will ask type of aircraft if they need to know.

Looking at his Flight history, something is very odd. He’s all over the place.

Man you guys weren't kidding, that toy gets around.
It's either in Ontario or Miami now.
But he did go to Provo Utah.


I'll be locking N12345 into my saved filters on FR24.

I have a question. F-22 has smaller radar signature than Mavic, correct? Some people rumored F-22 has radar signature of marble. Marble is much smaller than Mavic.

I know I know it's all a joke. And even if F-22 radar signature is really a marble it has huge visual, sound, heat signature just like any other fighter jet. Still, a pretty good joke if you ask me.

Well, neither a Cessna nor a drone is going to go from Honolulu to Miami then back to Honolulu, then to California and then back to Honolulu then back to California, then back to Honolulu, then back to California...all in a single day!! That ain't happenin'!!

And, anything which could do that (in one day) ain't goin' 162mph, that's for damn sure! It's going more like about Mach 4!

So, something (weird) is going on here.

Hardly the first time an aircraft has used a false N number. There are a couple of testbeds and C-32Bs that change their tail numbers more often than some people change their socks. And not all of them are real numbers in the database.

THIS is the Van's RV-8.


Don't think that will make it to Honolulu either.

Why Orange county airport if possibly a test bed. The B2 that was there yesterday would have gone to Edwards or back to Whiteman. I would think..


However a 757 or C-32 would...hmmmmmm.

The N12345 seems though it's coming from one Aircraft. But has it been used on more than one Aircraft simultaneously?

Locking the RV-8 N75RT into the filters too.

One of the most common to use a false N number is a Raytheon bird that pops up all over. For awhile it was going from LAX to Arizona and back. It's based at LAX and flies all over California when they're testing.

Parked at Atlantic Aviation?
Raytheon has all kinds of aircraft's...
T2 Texans, 737's, Premier to Bombardier. ( dang near every aircraft )

There is an Atlantic Aviation at John Wayne airport too.
Actually they're everywhere.

Found this..
Raytheon Coyote

One System: Multiple Missions

The most capable in its class, the Coyote® unmanned aircraft system is small, expendable and tube-launched. It can be deployed from the ground, air or a ship. The Coyote UAS can be flown individually or netted together in swarms, and it is adaptable for a variety of missions including surveillance, electronic warfare and strike. The system will operate up to one hour and is designed for interchangeable payloads.

The Coyote UAS can handle reasonably large accelerations during launch, a critical feature for all tube-launch applications. It’s ideal for improved surveillance imagery, enhanced targeting capability, near real-time damage assessment and reduced threat to manned aircraft.

COUNTER-UAS SOLUTION

The U.S. Army has selected the Coyote drone for a near-term counter-UAS solution. Equipped with an advanced seeker and warhead, the Coyote-enabled system can successfully identify and eliminate threat UAVs.

INTELLIGENCE, SURVEILLANCE AND RECONNAISSANCE

In a series of 2016 demonstrations conducted on land and at sea, more than two dozen Coyote systems successfully launched in a swarm and moved in formation, demonstrating the effectiveness of autonomous networking. The swarming capability can be applicable in multiple missions, from ISR activity to strikes against moving targets in a battlefield environment.

HURRICANE HUNTING

In addition to U.S. Department of Defense missions, the versatile Coyote...

Popped up in Honolulu.
It's like they wait for the one transmitter to switch off before using it right away again.


Only 23 mins to switch.
