RAF emergency: Alert as UK Hawk jet transmits urgent 7700 ‘Squawk’ code over Yorkshire


A British Aerospace Hawk T45 was flying over Bedale on Tuesday at around 10:30am, when it transmitted the signal near Burneston, Bedale. 

When a crew resets their transponder to the emergency code of 7700 (squawking 7700), it alerts all air traffic control facilities in the area. 

The code means that the aircraft has an emergency situation.

It has not yet been confirmed what the emergency is.
