Interesting ... they gave the Captainator a Mode A squawk and what sounded like a clearance on a published VFR route.  This would most likely be thru Class B airspace, which requires a Mode S transponder that can transmit altitude information.

I'd say its as fake as Korean levis.

 :lol: actually this was in Kuwait and he was cleared IFR direct position TASMI (On the boarder between Kuwait and Iraq) and its military traffic flying in Class A Airspace. He only talks like that when passing through Kuwait FIR for some reason. I guess its just his thing  :-D
