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..........
