If they would have made the trip up to YWG in November 1954, they would have seen the pioneer trans-polar flight. SAS COP-LAX in a DC-6B.

They were smart not to go to YWG. Nobody should be North of Duluth at that time of year. Did they want their plane to die or something??? I think not.

At least most of the photographers here don't cut off the fourth engine of a 747 or a wing fence off an A319. Maybe we'll get one of those here someday. In the mean time, we can work on those little jumbos.

Anything larger than a DC-9 that is seen on a regular basis from NW. Although there have been some A319's diverted here due to wx in MSP. I would also like to see anything larger here than the 727 for FedEx.

Northwest 1283 will actually be a DC-9-40 tonight. Also, this little airport actually has info on a website where you can find out more when stuff that matters happens.

There was an SY B738 here the other night. It brought the UND Hockey team back from their crappy play in COS in the NCAA tourny.

Drive to Fargo,
They get some decent stuff. You might get a NW 747 Diversion.

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

Hey guys, thanks for reading and adding to our post count. Today the weather was really nice at GFK. Last week there was a 6 kt x-wind and an Arrow went off of 17L. Be sure to post when you get some good news regarding GFK!!!

Lived in Langdon, ND, for a couple of years, 1973-75. Flew out of GFK quite a bit going back and forth to MCO. A real bear getting on the aircraft (no jetways) at -35 and getting off the aircraft in MCO at +85. People would ask "Where did you come from - the North Pole?" I would tell them "No, but it wasn't far".

Flew mostly NW 727s to MSP and on to ATL, then DL 727 on to MCO. Sometimes went NW 727 to MSP and on to ORD, then DL L1011 to MCO.

So what you are saying is that there were two Northwest planes on the runway within minutes of each other???? That might have to go up on the website that GFK has. Maybe.....

25 Pilottim747 : I saw two NW DC-9s, one Saab, and one B727 today while out at GFK (all within 3 hours). Incredible!!! pilottim747
26 AviatorTJ : Hey Tim, What airline was the 727? I know the FX one comes here every couple of hours, but last spring I saw an MG one here while I was on A ramp. Wha

28 AviatorTJ : The website above (aviation photographers & enthusiasts) travels to places where there is actually some action. I leave my camera back in Minneapolis.
29 AviatorTJ : Rumor has it that there are other airlines besides NW looking into serving GFK beginning late in the fall or early 2005. It would be nice to accrue mi
30 Pilottim747 : The only thing exciting that ever happens at GFK are bird strikes. Gotta love 'em. Today there were many close misses with UND aircraft, I'm sure. Plu
31 Je89_w : Interesting thread, I must say, since I never really heard of GFK. Are there any aircraft that operate (or been) to GFK that are larger than a B737? Y
