The question is self explanatory, because I was just listening to the scanner right now and I noticed this DC-10 climbing out. It's night, but I could recognise the DC-10 because of the engine sound and the landing lights on the fuse. However, the biggest issue for me is that once I managed to recognise the airline and I noticed the circular Gemini Air Cargo logo on the tail. But just now I noticed that these DC-10s are flying as FWL124 under the Florida West callsign. I tried to search the database for pictures but found nothing.

So again the question: does RF operate DC-10 freighters and are those just wetleases from GR or also from other airlines such as Arrow Air or Cielos?

Florida West leases a host of aircraft. For instance 747 flights are regularly operated by Atlas Air with FWL callsigns.

Quoting Laxintl (Reply 1):
Florida West leases a host of aircraft.

So they're basically an airline without a fleet of their own (in terms of dry leases or aircraft they purchased)?

Florida West has a couple maybe a few B767-316Fs. The company is partially owned by LAN as I understand. They lease a number of aircraft on ocassion. I have seen Gemini DC10-30-Fs, Tradewinds B747Fs and others flying for them (i.e., with their callsign).
