    Iridium 98 (27451, 2002-031B), which has been in the process of migrating
    from Orbital Plane 4 since late June 2005, has now arrived in Orbital
    Plane 6, which has been without a spare satellite since Iridium 77 (25471,
    1998-051E) replaced Iridium 17 (24870, 1997-034B) in August 2005.
    
    Orbital Plane 5 has been without a spare satellite since Iridium 86
    (25528, 1998-066B) replaced Iridium 16 (24841, 1997-030F) in April 2005,
    but Iridium 90 (27373, 2002-005B) appears to be in the process of
    migrating from Orbital Plane 3.
    
    I wil shortly update my Iridium Constellation Status page at
    http://www.rod.sladen.org.uk/iridium.htm to take account of the change.
