Kitty Hawk Flight 9710--a 747-200--flew from Bangor, Maine to Grand Rapids, Michigan today. FlightAware shows the details.

Any idea what that's all about?

Kitty Hawk's 3 letter ICAO code is KHA.

What was that thing doing going to Oscoda?! Talk about off the beaten trail.

I mean...I would've loved to see a 742 come into the North woods, but ....why?

OK...upon further review, apparently it comes about once a week. Anyone know what it's for?

What is a '3-engine ferry?' Is it simply a 747 with three 747 engines packed inside the cargo hold?

Quoting ChrisNH (Reply 7):

It is a ferry flight (no cargo or passengers) conducted using only 3 of the 4 engines, usually since one of the powerplants is inop.

Oh, OK. I thought it was ferrying three replacement engines. Is this why the Bangor stop was needed, because fuel burn is higher in a case like this...meaning that the plane could not have made the journey without that stop?

Never made it here (GRR.) I noticed the flight on Flightaware, and about an hour before it was supposed to arrive, I headed to GRR with camera in hand. Waited, and waited, no show. Called my wife from my cell and talked her through checking flight status on Flightaware and Flytecomm. She discovered CKS9710 went into OSC (Oscoda) instead.

Don't know why GRR ever showed in the first place, even for nearly an hour after the A/C departed BGR.... wondering if GRR was the alternate, but was entered as the intended destination in error.????

Even the flight history shows GRR on Saturday, but then DIVERTED

Man, was I BUMMED..........  crying 



Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.
