China: US Spy Planes Keep Setting Transponders to Appear as Civilian Planes of Third Countries

According to a Beijing-based think tank that monitors flights in the region, a US Air Force plane disguised itself as a Philippine aircraft while flying over the Yellow Sea on Tuesday. The South China Sea Strategic Situation Probing Initiative (SCSPI) observed the flight.

Another flight monitoring agency, Aircraft Spots, made a similar observation and noted that the plane used a different hex code when it was over the Yellow Sea between China’s coast and the Korean Peninsula. Hex codes are international numbers used to identify aircraft. The SCSPI said the US Air Force plane used a hex code assigned to a Philippine aircraft while over the South China Sea and switched back to its original when the mission was over.
