Both of these aircraft make frequent flights from Nellis into the ranges. N163EM is a Draken A-4N "aggressor". N155EC comes back as not currently registered. Probably a mis-code for another Draken A-4N. Aircraft are identified by the 6-digit hex code (known as ICAO or Mode-S code) assigned to their N-number. That code is set in the transponder with dip switches. Sometimes one of the switches does not get set properly, resulting in an incorrect code being transmitted by the aircraft.
