Misidentification of Operator MAF


#1

Hi folks

Saw this today.

flightaware.com/live/flight/MAF1

Enquiries elsewhere showed it was a Mexican Air Force flight not Mission Aviation Fellowship (who have small prop planes flying in Papua New Guinea amongst other places).

MAF isn’t officially allocated to any operator according the ICAO doc, nor is it listed in the FAA identifier doc either. MAF is used by the Mexican AF as an unofficial designator.
