Perhaps it was in Quebec for maintenance? Otherwise it could have either been a charter flight or a repositioning flight due to hurricane activity. Was this a one way trip or a roundtrip?

It's just a fuel and Customs stop. There is a second flight# 903 listed to run RDU-MYNN. My guess is Bahamasair is just getting some new planes. It's not strange at all.

It's easy... 902 was the first leg, so I took a guess and typed in 903 for the 2nd leg and was right. #903.... Raleigh-Durham to Nassau, Bahamas.

It could be that UP got some new aircraft or It could have came from YQB from maintainence. BTW does anybody know when they are due to replace their 732 with more modern equipment??? they are getting pretty old now

That route is flown for maintenance, its not an uncommon route for UP.
