I got CC hits on about 30 scanners today so I thought I'd check it out.

There's a Navy E6B orbiting the area.
Shown on SDR# and Virtual Radar below.

You can also find those E6 aircraft using Plane Finder.
Just search for ' GOTO FMS '.
Plane Finder – Live Flight Status Tracker
I always listen to planes but just started to get into sites like LiveATC, Flightaware etc. Can you explain more what Goto FMS is? I typed it into planefinder and it hit on a plane over Kentucky. I'm baffled. Gonna read help thing. Tnx.

Whenever I hear a strong EAM on 311.00, one of those GOTO FMS (E-6B) planes is always off my coast on planefinder.net.

Thanks, so Goto FMS is the callsign? I hear Reach at night, usually on 125.320. Can I type in Goto Reach then to track them?

I was tracking GOTO FMS a couple of days ago over SoCal and found this interesting article about it.

All/most E6 use the callsign GOTO FMS as the FlightID.

You can use this link to find the first active E6 flying.
http://planefinder.net/flight/GOTO FMS

You can also use the 'Filter' option on Planefinder to only show the E6's flying on the map.
Some unknown reason the E-6B listed under this airline name " Walter | Linkoping ".

Set the Planefinder App to send alerts for the E6 aircraft using the call sign " GOTO FMS ".

GOTO FMS means GOTO Fleet Maintenance Symposium.
