I came across the flight tracker site. Does Japn Airlines cargo serve to IND or a charter flight to IND?

Can you find out why JL 744 to IND today? It will arrive soon to IND. Anybody who lives IND go to spotter and take pix if you like to. Enjoy watch JL 744 tonite or tomorrow morning I don't know what time it will leave IND. Good luck.

Here it is:

Airline Japan Airlines
Flight Number 8806
Departure City (Airport) Tokyo, Japan (RJTT)
Departure Time 08/07/2005 04:47 AM
Arrival City (Airport) Indianapolis, IN (IND)
Arrival Time 08/06/2005 11:21 PM
Remaining Flight Time 05:30
Aircraft Type Boeing 747-400
Current Altitude 37,000 feet
Current Groundspeed 540 mph
Flight Status In Flight


Thanks,

Stuart

Stu,

That must be a charter flight, the flight number (8806) looks strange, usually have all JL flights to the USA three digit flight numbers (a LAX flight has 062, a HNL flight has 072, etc.).

A codesharing flight is also unlikely, which airline would fly NRT-IND?

must be a charter, as JAL and JAL SuperLogistics do not serve IND.

Must be for the namby-pamby Indianapolis Colts who got spanked by Atlanta in the America Bowl in Tokyo. Grossly overpaid, overweight 'sports' stars who are too unfit/lazy/greedy to give the paying public a worthwhile season.

I wish I got paid that much for 4 months work.

According to the JAL Cargo website, it is indeed a cargo flight Haneda to IND. Just put IND in the Airport Code box on lower left and choose Arrival from the drop down box.

Somebody's cranky. They lost a preseason game by under a touchdown. And they've been one of top teams for the last five years. Other cities should be so lucky.

American Football is the hardest pro sport on the body there is, with average careers under 3 years. I would not call any of those guys unfit or lazy, at least to their faces.

Try getting paid that much for devoting a lifetime to training, risking severe injury, etc. on the off chance you might become a superstar to earn that kind of money. Most players don't get paid millions, even in the NFL.

Now baseball...

This could be, I just saw that RJTT is the ICAO code for Haneda.

Could also be.

Well, it takes a LOT of stuff to run a football training program in a foreign country, especially because it is preseason and rosters are big. It might have been that the COLTS filled a bunch of containers with cargo (practice and game equipment, video equipment, etc.) and it was enough for JAL cargo to offer this flight, and book other revenue cargo as well.

Was there a similar flight last week to get them there?

There aren't any JAL cargo flights to IND, from anywhere. IND is only served by the FedEx hub.

Yes, there was and I was unable to get a shot of the 744 Sad

We are that lucky, in Pittsburgh, and we've been consistently good (with exceptions) for the past 30 or so years  Wink

9 replies and no mention of the Brickyard 400?

No NASCAR weekends ever have 747's from Japan coming in... so why would this one? The "NASCAR Airforce" is well documented on A.net, look it up, nobody ever gets a 747 from Japan.

I would've said CART and IRL seeing as so many teams are based in Indy, but then again neither of them are racing overseas soon . . .

Could it be a huge team of Toyota execs from Japan wanting to see whether they can break into the NASCAR field?  rotfl

No, 4 cylinder engines, and cheap plastic hubcaps, for a really high pricetag, won't cut it in NASCAR.

It has to be the Colts coming back from the game. There was a JAL 744 here I think on Wednesday or Thursday.

That's Japanese custom: you lose the football game and get shipped back as cargo!

Bet their inflight service would still be better than some other airlines!  Wink

Thought about the Colts, but since flight number came up on their cargo website, assumed it was equipment, etc., (although that would be a heck of a lot of equipment) and not the team transport.

Why is that funny? They are already in the truck series and are trying to get into the stock cars.

Toyota still up in the air, but could run in 2006: Chevrolet and Ford are seeking approval for new models to race in the 2006 Nextel Cup Series, while Toyota has satisfied all requirements to submit a car to compete in Nextel Cup or the Busch Series next season.
