Looks like Foreign Emergency Support Team C-32s are quite active these days……and doesn’t care about transmitting their information directly in the Public Domain.

  1. If they’re flying over U.S airspace, then there’s no need for their movements to be secret. In fact, since the C-32 is based off a civilian airliner, and it probably flying through civilian airspace, keeping its flight pattern secret would greatly increase the risk of a mid-air collision.

    Even when we flew B-2’s on strike missions into Libya and Iraq, they still had to talk to air-traffic controllers over public frequencies before going tactical. Anyone who wanted to listen to those communications could have, and some did so.

  2. 00-9001 is in the air again today (as shown on FlightRadar24), headed towards Andrews AFB, as of 08:44 EST.
