After reading this string,I had to check my notes when I was monitoring HF radio traffic on Tuesday 23 May,I heard 2 commercial aircraft relaying position reports for N2434Z,which was routing St.Johns(CYYT) to Cork(EICK).The aircraft was a Cessna C172 Skymaster on delivery to Germany…this according to the FAA register:
Deregistered Aircraft 1 of 1
Serial Number 17281327 Type Registration Corporation
Manufacturer Name CESSNA Certificate Issue Date 05/18/2006
Model 172R Mode S Code 50437040
Year Manufacturer 2006 Cancel Date 05/26/2006

Actually was rather interesting watching the aircraft on Flight Explorer Pilot Edition,right there in the middle of the Atlantic at 10,000 ft flying below all those “heavies”.
