Do you have ANY other information? a picture? anything?

If my memory serves me properly Midways longest runway is about 6500ft. This is MORE than enough runway for even a decently loaded 767.

Here at KPAE we see 767's on a regular basis and when they leave they use about half of the 9000' available runways.

Nothing is close by the WN hangars. It probably was 757.

Might be a bizjet, are there that many out there? Google has one of them, any others?

If a 67 is used as a bizjet, most runways should be long enough...

Wasn't there a rumor ATA was getting a used 767? and the WN hangar was formerly ATA's correct? Could that be possible?

This one is a Pace Airlines Boeing 757-200 (reg. N757BJ). The aircraft arrived in MDW at 11:17pm last night. It took the Minnesota Timberwolves to Chicago for their game against the Chicago Bulls tonight.

Obviously FII2993 is pretty confident. No offense to anyone in here... but a 757 and 767 are very difficult to confuse. The nose, fues, over all size, and height. You gotta be blind to confuse them...

I guess MAYBE from a very long distance away but to a trained eye its still very obvious.

A 767 could have easily been there. For what? Who knows... My guess is a charter or biz-jet though. There is always a good reason.  Wink

pilottim,

where do you get your information from?

The flight information is from Flightaware.com. I know its the Timberwolves because I the Timberwolves are travelling with Pace Airlines this year and they were in GRR for a game on Oct 18.

It does appear that FII2993 is very confident.

However, it is possible to confuse a B757 for a B767...depending on the angle and distance away from the aircraft you'd be amazed. I admit to wrongly spotting a B767 before.

When exaclty did you see this aircraft? Was it last week?

For what it's worth, I combed Flight Aware and found only 757s running in and out of MDW.
