English term or phrase: North Romeo
Guys, anyone have any idea what this means in Arabic? I would greatly appreciate specific Arabic aviation expressions in addition to an explanation, if possible.

This is from an article on the plane that crashed. It is the last transmission the co-pilot gave before air traffic control stopped getting responses from the plane. Here is what he said to the air traffic controller:

Buffalo approach 3407 12 or 11,000 North Romeo.

I tried Googling North Romeo but all I could find was that Romeo stands for the letter R, but I'm not sure what to make of the rest of the transmission.

Thanks a million guys!
