MEDEVAC, IIRC, is the more standardized version of LIFEGUARD when that term was used. Previously when used together, LIFEGUARD was used when a patient or organs were being transported from one location to another, while MEDEVAC was used to transfer a patient.

Case in point was TWA800, which was a LIFEGUARD aircraft, as it was transferring organs to Paris... obviously, those organs never made it. They standardized on MEDEVAC a while ago (Can't remember what version of the P/CG they finally standardized it on though).

This audio is from the flight's arrival at KORD. The routine nature of the arrival suggests to me nothing more than a routine transfer of a sick patient.

For reference: The use of "MEDEVAC" in this case is governed by the "Aeronautical Information Manual" (https://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/publications/media/aim_basic_chg_1_dtd_3-29-18.pdf), 4–2–4, b., 3.

I would say organ shipping as well. That or just a patient from hospital to hospital for whatever reason.

Thanks for sharing!

Anyone know why UA214 had MEDEVAC in the callsign when it was merely taking off? Clip also has one last goodbye from Virgin America. :-(

Sounds great --Contact MikeM for possible ATC recordings of the incident. He has great library of recordings and some nice equipment and computers. I am sure he would love to be of assistance.


Cheers
