How about a passenger 747 at DFW. Sadly, the world's best airport has no 747 service, except for cargo.


"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

Definitely a 737 in PHX! Sorry, I couldn't resist. But seriously...hmmm...an A321 in ONT.

The past 3 times Ive been at DFW I have seen at least 2 747s (cargo) Maybe an L1011 at DFW, I've only seen one there since DL retired them.

How about an A330 at LAX? I think the only airline that flies them into LAX is EI for the LAX-DUB-SNN run.

Just wait another year. NW will have the A330-200 flying out of LAX to NRT. Deliveries start in summer 04

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

A 747 in Tampa - They only come around when the moon is aligned with the stars. And an Antonov just about anywhere.

Any narrowbody at NRT

DC-10 Cargo at FTW (I saw that once)

L-1011 at DAL (again...)

AA DC-10 at NRR in 1995 when weather was too bad at SJU and they were low on fuel (one more time...)

Ssides is right, DFW doesn't see many 747 unless they're the KE cargo or similar. Back in the summer of 2001 I saw a KE 747 lift off using less than 1/2 of 18R at DFW (they were lengthening 18L at the time) and then turn towards the EAST! I thought it might be going to ATL, MIA, or JFK or something. Any ideas?

The only time an aircraft has too much fuel is when it is on fire.

L-1011s are hard to find anywhere.

No so. Services from Champion were halted in early December. They will, however, pick up in February.
FedEx has been flying a few 727s into JFK lately as well, though.

"How about a passenger 747 at DFW. Sadly, the world's best airport has no 747 service, except for cargo."


What are you talking about? JFK gets LOTS of 747s!  Big grin

Re: L1011s at DAL, the last few times I was there I saw one that didn't look like it was going anywhere anytime soon. I heard it belonged to Yasser Arafat. Did it finally leave?

Anything bigger than an ATR-72 at TRI.

Hey Garnetpalmetto,

A little off subject but I saw several ACA Dornier Jets parked outside a hangar (Eagle Aviation?) at CAE, along with a CRJ painted in United Express colors and I think a J41 or 2...do they perform mx there?

No 773s at US airports? KE, on occaision, flies their 773s to HNL. It may not be very often, but they are not hard to miss.
