Incident at Gander Oceanic Airspace (ELT)
2016-08-16: The Rescue Coordination Centre (RCC) requested flights in the Gander Oceanic region to monitor for ELT signals in the vicinity of 5147N3539W. Several flights in the area reported it also. The RCC then informed Gander that they had identified the beacon as that of the abandoned ship Lyubov Orlova, and that flights within 200 nautical miles may be receiving the signal. Shanwick was advised some flights westbound may report the ELT signal approaching 30W depending on how far and fast the ship drifts.
