Airtran now flies three flights a day from ATL using either DC-9's or B717's. They also will be adding, or have already added a Saturday flight from PHL.
The 727's sitting at the end of the runway belong to General Mediteranian Holdings. (I think!) Those aircraft used to be parked in Hagerstown Md. and origanally served for Pan Am with the tail numbers of N391PA, N392PA, N393PA. There should also be an old Eastern Airlines A/C there with the tail number N8867E. This is also owned by the same company, assuming that they still are under that name. I used to work with those A/C in HGR with JJ&W Aircraft Services. They couldnt handle there finances and filed for bankruptcy eventually being bought out by the owner of GMH and renamed Aircraft Repair Services. They at once thought they could move to Myrtle Beach and start a new life but seem to have run out of both money and steem. Those A/C were ferried into MYR about four years ago from HGR, where they will all need very extensive work including stage III hush kits before they fly again. There are still two 727's remaining in HGR N390PA, and N88869E, both of which have been raped for parts and most likely will leave on the back of a flat bed truck. Whatever the case it seems as though the company would be content to let them all sit and rot rather than spend a nickle on them to fix them and put them back on the market.
