I saw it taxing to past terminal C last night at BOS around 1830. I had to do a double take a first. I originally thought it was a A340, but I did confirm that it was actually a A300. I couldn't tell exactly where it was going since it was at night. I thought it was heading to terminal E.

It's probably some outsized freight bound for some New England customer perhaps? I was originally thinking that FedEx was the new buyer for the plane, but then I realized that when they do that they buy the plane, then do the conversions overseas. Then they fly the planes (A310s, often) to the U.S. via Bangor, Maine under a FedEx flight number...destination Memphis, where they enter the fleet. But that's not the case here, apparently.

Well, I wonder if anyone can shed some light on the reason why the aircraft is being flown to SAT. Perhaps some LH mx contract? On a side note, I flew to PSM a few weeks ago and also saw that Antonov. I was flying my 172....we were as big as one of its wheels......
