I was on the Isles of Shoals (Islands off the coast of Maine and New Hampshire) on August 27th, and at about 1:30 PM, an AN-124 flew over heading south and then a about a minute later, banked west, descending toward the mainland. I saw that plane again later that evening at Sunset, so I was just wondering if anyone has any info on what this plane was doing. I tried the Boston PASSUR tracker, and only got its altitude (about 4700 feet), then it just disappeared off the tracker (it was listed as General Aviation, so I'm not sure if that was it or not). no pics, but I would appreciate it if anyone could help me in any way. Thanks!  Smile

I have no clue where it was going (maybe Portsmouth airport, but not sure how long the runway is there), but it was an awesome sight!  Smile

Probably going to PSM. The AN-124 needs special permission to land at BOS, and PSM's runway is long enough to accomodate the AN-124 (I think it is around 11000 ft.)

If I had known about this, I might have had to run up to NH to see it.

''The AN-124 needs special permission to land at BOS"
i have been in to BOS quite a few times on the AN124 and cant remember anything about needing special permission, just the usual FAA and Customs stuff

I dont think it needs special permission to land, but most airports will provide escort vehicles for the 124 just to make sure it stays on the taxiways.

Hmmm.. I must have missed it if it went into PSM. I was monitoring the scanner on Wednesday evening. You're positive that it wasn't a C5, correct? There are a couple of white/grey ones floating around.

yup, positive it wasn't a C-5. A few minutes after the AN-124 flew by in the evening, a KC-135 flew over (this was at around 7:30PM (not an exact time)). Thanks for all the insight everyone!  Smile

Did you know PSM is the only other place in the US that can handle the Space shuttles.


Who cares about status?

Other than what?

Cape Kennedy and Edwards are two right there.
