Today (7/4/00) at 4:30 p.m. (at LAX) I saw an AOM DC-10 take off from runway 24L. This seemed odd to me because AOM only operates night flights from LAX. LAX-ORY departing at 9:40, and LAX-PPT departing around midnight. Does anyone know why this DC-10 took off at 4:30 and where it was heading? I can never snap a shot of an AOM bird because they always take off at night. I finally had the opportunity and my camera battery died 10 minutes before I spotted the DC-10. What a shame!

It could have been there for maintenance as United and FedEx have large facilities there. It could also be doing a charter for another company or a private charter. I know they do a lot of charter work and even do some cuban flight but I doubt this flight went there!
