Hexcode AE119C / RCH048 22-01-21

Post by E-R-I-C »

Dear all,
Hope somebody is able to help on my question regarding HEX AE119C.
Yesterday (22jan) around 1640lt (AMS) a C-17 (type visually confirmed) flying as "RCH048" with HEX: AE119C passed over The Netherlands towards ETAR and landed there. As per adsb exchange website this hex belongs to serial 03-3126. Also Planebase has this Hex linked to this serial (no hex linked to 03-3119 in their database).
But ADU has linked this HEX to 03-3119 and 03-3126 to HEX AE1237
So after checking with some friends and sources we're not 100% clear which C-17 it was. 3119 or 3126.
Based on the hex and serial it you can be pretty sure must have been the 3119, but would be great if somebody is able to (visually) confirm it.

Hex / serial
AE119A 03-3117
AE119B 03-3118
AE119C 03-3119 (?) / 03-3126
AE119D 03-3120
AE1232 03-3121
AE1233 03-3122
AE1234 03-3123
AE1235 03-3124
AE1236 03-3125
AE1237 03-3126

Looks like the 03=3126/Hex AE119C left ETAR again today (23jan) around 1300lt.

Hope somebody is able to help in this matter.
Your help is much appreciated.

Hex AE119C has been used by both 03-3119 and 03-2126 for some years now.

Hi All,
Same story again today (11FEB). My sbs gives HEX AE119C but not sure which serial is on the plane 03-3119 or 3126.
Somebody able to confirm via flightplan or visual confirmation?

Plane currently over NL heading towards ETAR.

Thanks!
