Jet airways 531 Squawk 7700 [Landed safely]

2 Likes

This is normal for fight radar so you usually have to wait to know what happened

I saw this too. At least it’s going to be a quick landing.

Landed safely.

Good. Landed safely, hopefully nothing happened to a passenger or something though

what he said

What does the squawk thing mean

Specific squawk codes are used for different emergencys-
7500 for hijacking
7600 for radio failure
7700 for general emergency

It means a aircraft is in a emergency situation

Squawk 7700 means General Emergency. This usually means the aircraft has to divert. Squawk 7700 is not necessarily a Mayday call.

Squawk codes are assigned to pilots by ATC to better differentiate them from other planes on the radar.
