I wanted to put out a quick informational on the GITMO flights for people new to watching. There is a regular tempo that takes place at “the spa” - what we are watching for are out of sequence flights (OSFs). Large OSFs are typically troop deployments or supplies
The ones that are highly suspect are the smaller acft. Highly skilled professionals known as “operators” typically use smaller acft because they can hold a small team of 4-6 guys with equipment, land on shorter runways, and leave less of a footprint.
These “grab n go” operations will typically not file any flight plans and “if” they do, they will either wipe the log immediately afterwards or kill their transponder away from their arrival/departure location to show a false track.
Some examples of the smaller acft are PAT (Priority Air Transports), SPAR (Special Priority Air Resource); and SAM (Special Air Mission) and GTMO callsigns. These typically hold VIPs; but have been known to bring in the occasional HVT (high values target).
The smaller ones that are highly likely to contain operators (aka takedown teams) and an HVT are the mom and pop charters such as this one. We have been seeing more and more of these in the last few months.
Most people are expecting some large acft to arrive with a few hundred people; but that’s just not the case. The DOJ prison transport (JPATS) are B737 and MD80 acft have yet to land at GITMO; but we do believe they are feeders for transports from MIA Fed Pen to GITMO
When the HVTs we are all watching for are finally arrested, it will likely be several small acft that have strange anomalies with the flight; & the tracking system will likely go off-line. We may not actually know until months later as they may simply disappear
