Doesn't Maxton mean.....THE END ? Yes,the runway is too short to leave. The runway is 4200 feet long and 75 feet wide. It is a general aircraft airport owned by the city of Manila, Arkansa. Kiss that aircraft goodby. :old: Maxton is owned by the Town of Laurinburg & Maxton (NC). Runway 5/23 is ...Jump to post
So far, much of the response activity has been centered around the larger upstate airports. I've always been interested in what sort of terminal facilities are in the smaller airports such as Plattsburg, Ogdensburg, Elmira etc. If anyone has any photos of these airports it would be good to see. Tha...Jump to post
Speaking of AA Barbie jets...I'll be at ROC later today to fly back to DC. I'll try to get some pictures of the construction. They've installed some framework above the apron just outside the atrium window next to the west rotunda and A2. Southern Ontario really skews things at BUF. Canadians seem ...Jump to post
Must have been cheaper and easier to scrap it in this country . Instead of Saudi Arabia and then having to ship the parts to the USAJump to post

It looks like DL 9950 is the rescue flight. It appears that it is going DTW-ATL-LOS. I'm always interested in the crews, mechanics, and other staff that they arrange on short notice and dispatch for the recovery flight. Most airlines have a "go team" of engineers that are basically dispat...Jump to post
Best part were the rear air stairs on stretch '27 Yup. Just ask DB Cooper! By the way, I am sure that someone here can help me with a question I have been curious about. Which was the first US airline to retire all of their 727's (and when) and which was the last US airline to do so (and when). Tha...Jump to post
I wish they would come to ROC. We need some new blood,here . I don’t think they would come there anytime soon. If they did, they would likely do Rochester-Orlando, and the ROC-ORL market already has Southwest and Allegiant. I don’t think there’d be room for a third airline to do that, unless they t...Jump to post
QF's -SP's were more reliable for the flight being non-stop. Their RR's RB211's were more fuel efficient and QF kept the best ones one the -SP.Jump to post
I saw that one landing in FLL from MSY with a load of horses in March. Seems every west coast to FLL flight on Air Horse One stops for fuel or a horse break at MSY, must be good business at they happen fairly often. Last one was Jan 29, before that Jan 24.

They've been bringing it to ROC from BDL . Of course,it's winter and the weather is lousy. Maybe by late spring it will still come in?Jump to post
B6's got quite the operation at FLL nowadays - I checked the schedules for a Friday in late February and they are up to ~105 daily departures. WN adds another ~85, NK has ~65, and in total FLL has 400+ scheduled daily departures this winter! Some nice widebody action too - there are 8 763 departure...Jump to post

In the original series (CBS, 1968-80), United Airlines was an integral part of each show's intro, as well as in the plots of many episodes, but I do remember an appearance by Hawaiian Airlines. I that episode, Steve and Danny had to fly to Hilo, which they did aboard a Hawaiian Airlines DC-9. Back ...Jump to post
As should their DC-9-50 N675MC. I don't think the red would fare too well in the long term Atlanta sun. Seemed to do alright spending all those years getting beat on in the flight levels. Yes,but to repaint the 747 where it is now in the future isn't as easy as a plane in service is.It can't be rol...Jump to post

The Bills charter flight number is DL8865, you can set an alert on FR24 or flightaware to stay updated. Ship 6314 is scheduled to depart DTW at 9 am and arrive in BUF at 10. It is then scheduled to depart for FLL at 1 and arrive at 4 pm. From experience, the charters never arrive on time, so I woul...Jump to post

Isn't there a DL 744 at the Delta Museum? Yes there is a 747-451 at the Delta Museum. Registration N661US. It is the first 747-400 built and was delivered to Northwest Airlines. Delta probably kept it as it the first 747-400 built. :old: For anyone that has the chance, I definitely recommend paying...Jump to post
According to a twitter message by the Spartans, N669US may have flown its final flight. https://twitter.com/MSU_Football/status/944308908851716096 Judging by the first photo, they boarded from a gate at DTW? Since when did sports charters do that? It was unique as it was for Michigan State, or at l...Jump to post
Hi hkcanadaexpat, 669 ship 6309 is going to MJZ today from SAN, and that it for her. SAN should see 6314 on the 26th. LAX will see 6306 one more time before it goes to MJZ and 6314 two more times. Sorry I tried to add a picture, but can't figure it out :( I wonder what will happen to the plane's in...Jump to post
I went to the Flight Path Museum event with N666US yesterday. Great turnout and the crew participating in the event were all wonderful. Captain Allen spoke for hours, answered every question and provided interesting stories and anecdotes. Visitors got to visit every nook and cranny of that bird. Th...Jump to post
