FNT has an exciting announcement tomorrow, any ideas as to what it may be? https://www.facebook.com/BishopInternationalAirport/posts/10154746142500488:0 If I had to guess, I'd say it's some sort of added G4 flight- maybe LAS or AZA.

Many thanks for this thread! I must admit that I thought the venerable -8 had already completely disappeared from the skies. Must be at least 15 years since I last saw one. Good to see some of them are still flying, and that roughly 50% even still have their original P&W JT3D fuel-to-noise conv...Jump to post
I'm watching the Saint Jude Classic at TPC Memphis golf tournament on CBS. A FedEx 767 just did a couple low passes over the course during the tournament. Pretty awesome....the second one was spectacular! The cameras took a break to cover it. It looks like the pilots were having fun.Jump to post
I got this from Airnav.com. An average of 404 movements per day is no slouch of an airport: KOPF: Airport Operational Statistics Aircraft based on the field: 267 Single engine airplanes: 111 Multi engine airplanes: 72 Jet airplanes: 70 Helicopters: 9 Military aircraft: 5 Aircraft operations: avg 404...Jump to post
An update on the battery. It was not a laptop battery, rather what appears to be an AA size lithium battery in a charging unit: http://image.mlive.com/home/mlive-media/width620/img/grpress/news_impact/photo/22815446-mmmain.jpg . .

GYY has basically offered Norwegian Everything for free if they choose them for the Chicago location. For the typical Norwegian passenger GYY is a more ideal location than MKE or RDF. 25 miles to the South Loop of Chicago. Plus Chicago south shore Meta line has stop right at the airport.

B6 flight 915 from JFK to SFO diverted to GRR last evening (30-May) due to smoke emitting from a carry on bag containing an electronic device with lithium batteries. The fire was put out before the aircraft landed. The flight was delayed while the aircraft was inspected and refueled before departing...Jump to post

It appears N669US (per FlightRadar24) tried to operate flight 583 to PVG yesterday and returned back to Detroit. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL583/history/20170522/2037Z/KDTW/ZSPD Wow, that's twice in 2 days..... not good for N669US.

From viewing a satellite photo, it looks like there are more buildings that will need to be demolished for the new runway- a handful to the east, one of which is the Hartsfield-Jackson Technical Campus.Jump to post

My thoughts for what they're worth; -I tried to book a trip to Calgary/Banff/Vancouver this June. No rental cars available and all high end hotels booked solid.

Somewhere in addition to FLL would be helpful here. I enjoy flying SWA, but that would take 2 plane changes for me to get there. I'm sure others would be in a similar situation. Why not BWI or MDW also? Ditto here. 2 plane changes and taking most of a day to get there and back would be a real negat...Jump to post
Many of these Pan Am timetables have complete images of the schedules. PAA used symbols below the flight numbers for a/c types, with a key to those symbols noted below.
Have fun exploring:
Southwest doesn't surprise me, just seemed to be very friendly and helpful, clean aircraft on-time and reasonable legroom. As a tourist free bags are a plus as it's difficult to travel 9000miles without bags. Their fares are also good but I would choose them over AA/UA/DL even if the fare was more....Jump to post
So doomsday scenario for Yooper aviation... EAS $$$ disappear. Would any current EAS Michigan airports retain commercial service?

While refueling the C-5 behind the KC-10, the center engine would push the C-5 to a bit of skid off go one side. If you tried to stay perfectly centered on the lights you would pushed either way.

I would be interested to know how rest was handled in the Gen. 1 narrow body planes like the VC-10, 707-320 or the mighty DC-8 which I beleive had the longest lets of them all back in the day.

There were 6 Western Global MD-11's parked at RSW this past Sunday 16-April. Airfleets.net shows them operating 11 MD-11's and 2 744F for a total of 13 aircraft. It really makes me wonder how well they're doing as a company when almost half of their fleet is parked at their base in RSW.Jump to post

I was able to see her depart, taking up most of rwy 18C as we're used to with Kalitta. Leaving a nice smoke trail too. I'm very sad to see them go, I have fond memories of the K4 742 around AMS.

Not as far as the flights from PIT and MKE to CUN,
I'm still amazed that they used RWY 20 for takeoff. I would have never expected that. They used RWY 11 on Wednesday due to lighter south winds. The 787 is a beast! From the video rotation on RWY 11 appears to have occurred at, or just prior to reaching RWY 11/29. Well less than 6000' for sure-- imp...Jump to post
Mach 0.995 in flight testing with FTV1 after only 200 hours of flight. Impressive. Very impressive if you can get above every one else out there.

Could B6 land at APF with their 320s or 190s? The runway is so short. I flew ASA CRJ-100 back in the day. APF's longest runway is 6600 ft. More restrictive is the fact that APF has aircraft weight restrictions of 75,000 lbs maximum gross weight. B6 would never be able to fly there unless they were ...Jump to post
