This message is in very unusual format,what was source?
Looks like ATSU(1TX1)/MCDU2(2CA2),HARD fault, fault code 46-21-34, flight phase 06, detected by AFS,FWS, date 160816, time 1633, unable identify A/C.
Most probably cause from my point of view is failure of ATSU.

Almost certainly from an A330.

this is from an ACARS receiver I'm running dunnunda. It is from an A330, didn't post the aircraft details.

Why do you want to know?
A snag like this would only be of interest to maintenance engineers and flight crew.
ATSU/ATIMS reset probably a quick fix.


Unless it's part of received data from a missing aircraft........
