Not sure if it's a new one, 'Jackal' used by Army Air Corps BN Islander/ Defender. No squadron number shown but it was flying flying out of central England and doing circuits around the mouth of the Severn at 00:25.

Not quite British, but a close neighbour so I present to you Irish Air Corps callsigns etc

Allouette = Alpha
Casa 235’s = Charlie
EC-135T2 = Echo
PC-9M = Irish
Learjet 45 = Irish
King Air = Kilo
Defender = Papa
Cessna = Romeo
AW-139 = Whiskey

Training flights add ‘T’ to their callsign, e.g. Cessna on a training flight would be, ’Romeo Tango 203’.

If you hear "Victor" at the end of the callsign that denotes a VIP on board. The Learjet and King Air form the Ministerial Transport Squadron.

PC-9's have used Swallow, Banter, Batman and Fox a number of times

AW-139's were christened "Wolfhound" and have been heard to use 'Wolf'

Evening Members,

I’ve just had an e-mail from a member down in South Wales “John23Edwards” who is also a member of Milscanners, he gets e-mails relating to callsigns as well as scanner frequencies. Well tonight he has sent me a small update concerning Chinooks, seeing as we have had quite a few Chinook visitors recently, I thought I’d post this onto the callsign list so you can listen out for it on its return to Valley.

27 Squadron the squadron has finally been heard to use the callsign ‘Dumbo’, but specifically on the 100th Anniversary elephant tail art Chinook. I wonder if it will be the display ship in 2016?

28 Squadron that had been a Merlin HC1 operator, is now I think fair to say 28 (R) Squadron, with the squadron now split into 2 halves; 2 separate OTU flights. 1st flight is the Chinook OTU flight and the 2nd flight is the Puma OTU flight. The callsigns are ‘Gurkha’ and ‘Kukri’, but as yet, I’m not sure which the flight the callsigns are associated to or if they are just handed out randomly very day? The last new callsign associated with the Chinook that was posted was ‘Champ’. Again I have no idea which flight the callsign is associated with (again is it associated to one type or just handed out randomly?). Before anyone mentions it I am aware that ‘Champange’ is a callsign that was associated with both 28 & 78 Squadrons.
