Sqwak in avation terms refers to a transponder ident number.

However I dont believe that 7700 means anything.
I believe 777 is hijacking.

Basically, to identify planes on the towers radar screen, the tower will ask a pilot to "sqwak" a number. The pilot enters the number in thier transponder and that transponder echos that number back to the tower in the next radar ping.

7700 is a general emergency

They circle to burn off fuel. Too heavy to land or landing gear problem and want to lessen fuel to lower the risk explosions (example).

7500 is HiJack
7700 is general emergency

The 7700 is often abused by aircrew to give priority landing (declare an emergency fuel shortage, ill passenger etc)

IMHO those that abuse it should be prosecuted
