There have been multiple threads on here that mention it, for one thing.

Claiming "Need to Know" is rather precious - especially from the topic starter!
All the pompous "in jokes" aside it IS amusing if you ever get the opportunity to listen in to ATC over there, that they still never actually ackowledge the aircraft type to others, they simply refer to it as "local traffic" or something equally mundane! So it COULD be the flying club Ce.172, although the broad US accent and not very oblique RT callsign is a bit of a giveaway
