An impromptu decision to take a flight together, @Hussein_Zreik and myself decided on a short 45 minute hop over to Brussels. However, a pesky indivudal decided to copy our FLP and follow us the whole way so the only way to escape was to transition over to a formation flight. What entailed was a series of close calls, contacting ATC several times due to controller switches and the phenomenon known as “diving for the cone”. In the end we managed to grease the landing and come to a safe rest at the gate! Kudos to all the atc working hard at this time!
Approach was fine with it the whole way and then went offline, contacted tower and they never responded then they went offline too, so we did a normal approach and landing side by side basically (meant in reply to Riley)
With group flights or formations who have “flight of X” in their callsigns, we’ll treat them as one aircraft. Max could have had 7 aircraft in formation, and if they all had “flight of 7”, ATC wouldn’t have batted an eye. :)
