Jack Wade veiled reference to LTK in GoldenEye

Does Jack Wade make a reference to Licence To Kill by using the Cessna 172 with an almost identical red stripe marking as Franz Sanchez's one? It's possible that the registration number was changed maybe after it was held by the DEA after Bond did his heroics during the LTK mission...

I had a look at the John Gardner GoldenEye novelisation but it doesn't add any more relevant dialogue to the scene. I doubt that it's meant to be the same plane as Sanchez's but I think it could still be an oblique reference to Leiter in the same fashion as this line of dialogue in Moonraker that I wrote about:
