Usually when these planes come in (747 was the last one I saw) park out next to the Mesaba MX hanger. I believe they come here for people to go shopping at the Mall of America. Sounds like they want to experience hell to me!!!!! Shopping the day after thanksgiving! Now that takes a pair!!!!!
Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

Haha! Saudis flying 8,000 miles to go shopping in Minneapolis. Yes, I know Mall Of America is very big an' all, but they have shops in the Middle East. If I lived in Saudi, I'd go to Beirut or Dubai, or to get the full experience, London (an Arab capital). And if I was an American, I wouldn't be too excited about Saudis coming in and out of my country! Didn't they attack y'all just recently? Oh right, Iraq was responsible. Sorry.
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

I hear that it is scheduled to depart on Sunday night at around 9pm. The charter is for the Mayo Clinic, although I dont know much more. I would guess that the L1011 dropped off the VIPs at MSP and RST back on the 7th and that its now back to pick them up.

Never tell your girlfriend about all the 'action' you're getting at the airport - only photogs understand that.
