Anyone out there in PIT land know why the Qatar Airways A340 is over at Atlantic Aviation?

I checked Flightaware and Flytecomm, but couldn't come up with anything for the past couple of days.

I don't know about the QR A340, but a lot of strange stuff this morning, looking on Flightaware.

Lot's of business/corporate jets, and all those PIT-AGC-PIT Bonanza flights. Is there something going on?

Not sure...although there's been a ton more biz-jet stuff at PIT since Atlantic Aviation took over from FBO Avcenter.

Could be a new airline...."West Mifflin Express"!!!  biggrin

The Queen of Qatar is in town. Apparently she's a big Pirates fan.  biggrin 

Naw, just kidding ... from what I heard she attended some kind of graduation. One of the kids in college over there maybe?

As for the biz-traffic, Allegheny Airport is closed for runway repairs, so thet's why PIT's been swamped with little critters.

I happened to be at Atlantic yesterday and snapped these pics:

The QR -500 hasn't had any new pictures for ages here on A.Net.

Some kind of military charter, no doubt.

The routing according to Flytecomm was San Salvador-DFW-ORD-PIT with very short stops in ORD and DFW.

Not sure where it departed PIT for, however.
Nice to see a L-10 here, though!!!

Ah..found it. It left PIT for IND at about 3:30PM on Sunday.
...probably the end of its military run.

Very nice. Shame I couldn't see it, but where I work is blocked off by the freight/cargo center. I can't see many landings/takeoffs from Stevenson Mill Road.

Speaking of cargo, they began construction over by the UPS cargo building, anyone know the reason for the new construction?


I saw the ATA tri star on approach while I was going into Olive Garden. I just figured it was operating a Military Charter as well!
