Looks like LMCO finally caught on that their flights were being tracked on the internet. It's funny that Groom Lake never bothered to block internet tracking of the Janet aircraft, but went through the pain of having their tracks filtered on the net just when they used a military transponder code.

Here is the thread with the audio of N623BA landing at Groom Lake:
booty 5

If I have any archived tracks from the LMCO aircraft, I'll post links in this thread.

It was either that or the pilots were embarrassed because of the 'Booty' call sign.

Even the Janets were Booty on that recording, though one pilot kept saying "boot". They pick a new callsign each month. I recall one May the callsign of the month was "mother", so sometimes there is a reason behind the callsign, though hopefully there was no reason to use "booty."

The silly thing is the callsign is only a secret on day one, so I really don't see the point.
