Emergency Transponder Squawk Codes
by Jason Schappert
One of the biggest falters in emergencies is the pilots failure to properly communicate the emergency. Knowing the emergency transponder squawk codes can help ATC evaluate your situation and notify help sooner or aid in getting you to the nearest airport.
Below are the 3 squawk codes every pilot should commit to memory:
7500 – Hijack
7600 – Lost Comm (radio failure)
7700 – Emergency
of course you have no clue that dialing in 7500 doesn't require keying a mic or screaming anything, it's SOP

On September 11, 2001, Homer was flying with Captain Jason M. Dahl on United Airlines Flight 93 from Newark, New Jersey, to San Francisco. The plane was hijacked by four al-Qaeda terrorists as part of the September 11 attacks. While struggling for control of the plane, Dahl and Homer managed to transmit to the ground twice, screaming "Mayday! Mayday! Mayday! Get out of here!". After learning of the earlier crashes at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, some of the crew and passengers tried to foil the hijacking and reclaim the aircraft. During this struggle, it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
