All times and dates on this page are in Zulu time.

Non-tasked Air Force missions, other than winter storm tracks, usually have a 15 digit number for an identifier. (and sometimes 11 digits) Sometimes they might drop a single sonde or two and have a few non-tropical RECCO messages. Long term, this data is likely less important than other data. Missions with an 11 or 15 digit identifier are automatically deleted after 21 days.
