  • Bad Info rejection

    Hello,

    I tried uploading a new registration to the database and it was rejected for Bad Info with the following comment:
    "UV-18C / 08-00263 as per Scramble."

    The photo in question:
    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=9215244

    I found the data I entered through a combination of adsbexchange (https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao=ae509d) for the registration, and http://www.maximumperformanceaviatio...ross-keys.html for the serial number. The registration 10-80263 is not found on Scramble.

    However, in the JetPhotos database, there is a very similar registration (10-80262) with two photos: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/keyword/10-80262
    This has the serial number 852.

    However, 10-80262 is not found in Scramble, but 08-00262 with SN 852 is present in Scramble (along with the 'Golden Knights' comment, indicating that it is in fact referring to the Twin Otter in question), but 08-00262 is not in the JetPhotos database.

    Based on all this information, was the Bad Info rejection valid? I am not sure which data source to trust, since adsbexchange is using the registration I entered, and Scramble is using something else. Additionally, I wasn't sure how to factor in the shots already accepted into the database as mentioned above.

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Scamble is indeed correct. She is a Viking UV-18C Twin Otter with reg 08-00263.

    The 10-00262 entry was incorrect at jetphotos, as was the type.

    As it was unclear because we had also incorrect info I added your picture with the correct info.

        Requesting a correction to the correction: the registrations should be:

        08-00262 (https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/keyword/08-80262)

        and

        08-00263 (https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10185493)

        Thanks
