I can see both of the C130s on radar.
85-0035 RCH 240
85-0041 Hank 41
Does anyone know why they are using the callsign Hank 41?
This was the same last night also. Any that I have seen before seem to use the RCH prefix. Just wondering.

I see. Thanks. Seen one yesterday right overhead going Northbound but sadly I didn't have the camera downstairs, would have been an excellent photo. Sitting here now with the camera on me "just in case"...

The RCH (REACH) callsign is used by aircraft of the USAF engaged in the USAF Global Reach programme.

85-0041 is a training aircraft belonging to the 62nd Airlift Squadron (62AS), 314 Airlift Wing (314AW) of the Air Education & Training Command (AETC)
which uses the HANK callsign.

HANK, YANKEE etc are the unit callsigns.  Each mission is planned using those as usual per the unit's procedures.

If the mission is under an Air Mobility Command tasking then a further REACH callsign is allocated or generated and when filling a flight plan with ATC this this takes priority; there are various diplomatic agreements for permitting or facilitating REACH movements.

Similarly with CAMBER for the civil operators; the crew might plan with NCR5334 but file as CMB406

I *think* that the RAF do something similar, you'll see Herks with callsigns like JUDGEMENT and ZORRO when not operating as ASCOT.
