It sounds like a code or something pilots could relay to a control tower, but "Bravo Charlie Tango" is a message of urgency.

In the NATO phonetic alphabet it stands for BCT, shorthand for 'Biker Coming Through'. On more than 3,000 occasions over the past few weeks, that biker coming through has been carrying vital emergency supplies to hospitals, nursing homes and care settings across the country.

Bravo Charlie Tango [BCT] is made up of 1,000 like-minded bikers.
