Hey guys. I know this is kind of a longshot but I figured I'd try.
I was listening to my scanner when I heard a heavy landing at CLE. The flight number was 31. Only problem is the callsign was so short it blended with the number. It sounded almost like "Varig 31 Heavy" but the pilot was American and Varig has never been here. It was right about 5:20 Eastern Time. Any help is appriciated. Thanks!

Here are the only flights that I see to Cleveland with a "31" in them for the day...
American Eagle 831 from New York
American Eagle 31 from Chicago
Continental Express 2231 from Columbus
" " " 2131 from Syracuse
Continental 1831 from Boston
" " 1431 "" ""
Fed Ex 1731 from Indianapolis
When you say 5:20 Eastern time do you mean am or pm? Because the Fed Ex flight came in around 5:40 am and it is an A300 which makes it a heavy

I had a two day trip that started yesterday at 10:00 am and there was a Qatar Airways A-340-200 at terminal A. It left around 12:00, im sure that was the heavy that came in on the 12th. It was covered with snow, you could tell it was a long way from home!

Another rich world leader in for a check up at the Cleveland Clinic I presume. It was great when the leader of the UAE was in. He brought his fleet of I believe 4 747SP's in to transport himself and his entourage.
