Noticed this on FR24, surely a record for altitude for a Cessna 172  :D

I can't even find a C172 with that reg lol

It was a Cargojet Boeing 767 out of East Midlands, and most probably C-FMIJ which had landed around 6:30 and came from Hamilton, though there could have been more than one as it's a busy hub.

Miscode or wrong reg? hard to tell :)

C02080 is the code for the *172* C-FMHZ
C0208A is the code for the 767 C-FMIJ
