Well guessing DAB will be getting ready for hell compared to a regular day at DAB (Riddle planes all over taxiway november ?  Smile ). I recall when I was down there at riddle the huge lines for takeoff after the race and the wonderful a/c that would show up. Anyways a couple of questions insiders may know

1) Will Delta be using the trraditional 767 during the week of the race?
2) What wil Continental be using?
3) When I was down there 99-03 these were the only airlines think FL flies there now is that true? If so will they up the freq?
4) Anyone got pics of the waiting line at takeoff after the race?

Cheers

DL is not using any 767 to accomadate race fans this year. The largest a/c I found for this weekend was the 757. I don't know what CO is doing. I've only seen 1 mainline and 1 COEX to Newark for Monday. No non-stop to IAH or CLE. I don't know what the other airlines are planning, if anything.

Continental is using a 757-300 on their Tuesday mainline flight.

DL has 3 757, 4 MD-88 and 2 CRJ-700s to ATL on Monday. The 757s are the extra additions as DAB normally gets the 4x M80 and 2x CR7 daily. CVG and LGA each have a CRJ-700 on Monday.

DL is sending in a 757 today on the 1130a departure from ATL - that's the only real change for today.

IIRC, they're flying DAB-CLT on Monday morning... I want to say it's a 738, but it might be an M88.

They axed that after US announced service.

I believe US's monday schedule is 6x 737 (300/400 mix) and 1x E175

Not too shabby for an airline that started there 2 weeks ago...

I believe FL is also running an extra ATL for a total of 4x (plus their LGA) on monday.

CO did add i think 1-2 ERJs for monday like a 3pm and a 6pm i think (just like their sat sched)

Actually they changed it, there are NO direct non-stop flights to CLT from DAB, nor the other way around. There is a direct (with a stop in ATL) flight on Sunday (DL9700), but that's it. I think they figured since US has all their flights to CLT, they'd let them handle it.

I'm working on getting my DAB schedule up on a server. I wanted to have it before the race, but have been really busy. It's a handy little tool that is very dynamic and can show just about anything you want to know about flights related to DAB. I'm trying to get it up on a temp server as I type this and will post a link once it's ready.

No wonder I couldn't find the southbound flight when I looked this morning... With the way FL chases the money, I'm a little surprised FL didn't offer a DAB-CLT flight for the weekend. The demand is certainly there, and flights from CLT to anywhere in Central/North Florida are not cheap this time of year.

Alright guys, I've managed to get it running on a temporary server. If you go here: http://ervadb.org/demo/ you can find just about any information about a scheduled aircraft going in or out of DAB. It still needs more touchups to make it more user friendly, but it works just fine. You can choose four different types of displays, or ways to view the flight information, on the left side of the option menu at the top. The displays are: Columns, Timeline, Table (simple), Stats. You can narrow the display by airline (includes DL, FL, CO, US, and VQ*). You can also narrow the display by aircraft type and destination/arriving from airport. And of course you can limit the date range. Best viewed one week at a time, as larger date ranges take longer to load. You easy change dates by clicking the Prev Week and Next Week buttons. There is no submit button, as anytime you change the options at the top it should reload the display. If for some reason it doesn't there is also a refresh button in the top left. If anyone has any questions, please send me a private message.

If you want to see bizjets, take a trip down to West Palm Beach PBI. Coincidentally, due to the boat show down there, PBI is showing around 200 biz arrivals in the past 24hrs!

There is 4 F-15's, a C-21 (Air Force Learjet), a C-12 (Air Force King Air) and a Navy T-45 Goshawk on the south west part of the airport, just west of Yelvington FBO. On the airliner ramp there is all 6 of the Air Force Thunderbirds, which will open the Daytona 500 today.

7 actually. And as I type they are adding external tanks on a few of them (I don't think it's all). Canopys are open and there's a good amount of activity over there. They should be ready to go within the next hour.

For any spotters, they are currently using the 25s but winds are almost directly out of the south so it is subject to change at any time.

CO operated 3 EWR flights this past saturday and 1 to CLE. Tomorrow there is the daily 733 at 1100 and an extra EWR section at 1415 with an ERJ. On Tuesday, there is only one flight at 1100 with a 753. Then it's back to the once daly to EWR. They have also have begun extra seasonal Saturday sections. There is an 1815 to EWR with an ERJ and another ERJ to CLE at 1400. These Saturday flights will stay until sometime in June.

You know, I can't seem to understand why DAB doesn't have more yearly service as an eastern feeder into MCO. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the extent of their service-
US: CLT (soon)
FL: ATL, LGA (soon gone)
DL: ATL, LGA (soon gone)
CO: EWR (1x daily)

I know UAex used to run a CRJ to IAD, but they pulled out awhile ago. I dunno, DAB just seems like a diamond in the rough.

It's been hell all week, or since at least Friday. I was supposed to go flying to JAX on Friday evening to catch my commercial flight. A friend of mine was going to fly me up there and we couldn't get out of DAB. We sat at the hold short line for about 20 minutes as number 4 or 5 for takeoff and ATC wasnt clearing anyone for takeoff. We decided we weren't getting out and ended up taxiing back and driving to JAX to catch my flight home.

I'll look forward to seeing the CO 757-300 on Tuesday. DL sending in the 757s is for more than just this weekend. They're going be sending those in through at least March, as I'm flying back in a 757 ATL-DAB coming home from Spring Break at the end of the month (March). Looking forward to that as well.

Probably because MCO is only an hour drive to get to and is generally significantly cheaper for airfares then DAB. DAB doesn't have the constant demand year round that MCO does. DAB has a few busy periods- this being one of them, and that's only a couple weeks a year. Otherwise the town is pretty quiet.

Sad to say, but this is so true.

And let's not forget SFB, which is even closer, especially with Allegiant who files from there to a variety of strange places, but on the cheap.

DAB and MLB remain under MCO's "giant shadow" for the foreseeable future.

Close.

US started CLT on 2/1 with 3x daily E175 (and a whole bunch of 737s for Race Week)
FL ops ATL (3x), LGA (1x), and BWI (weekends only)
DL ops ATL (6x), CVG (weekends for Spring Break traffic) and LGA (1x)
CO ops EWR (1x) and CLE (Sat only)

UA shouldn't have had a sh*t fit when FL received subsidies from DAB, and should've stayed. If I remember correctly, they actually did fairly well here with 2 or 3 daily IAD and a Saturday to ORD. For selfish reasons, I wish they'd come back. DAB needs a steady link that isn't ATL or EWR, and ORD would fit the bill. Chicago supposedly has high O&D to DAB, and a daily non-stop CR7 would do well with both O&D and connections.
DL should bring back daily CVG service like we had a few years ago.
AA could probably get away with 2x daily ATR service to MIA, and maybe even an ERJ to DFW or ORD. Wishful thinking, most likely.

Anyone else think DAB is capable of more service?

Actually it was C-130. Then two of them on Sunday. And another stuck around till at least this morning. They were helping out the Thunderbirds. #6 bird took in some real birds while doing some test flying late last week. The entire engine needed to be replaced. It was not able to be fixed by the time of the race and they flew with 6 out of 7 planes. When I left late last night, #6 was sitting in one of NASCAR's hangers (at the airport) still being worked on. I'm not sure if they were able to get it out today or not.


25 MIAMIx707 : Are the old Trans Florida convairs still there? are they shootable?
26 DeltaRules : No, it was a C-17. Four engine jet with winglets. Saw it Friday morning & saw it leave again while at the track that day. The 130s were there as well
27 FlyDeltaJets87 : The formation is always 6 planes anyway. 1 lead, 2 behind the lead, and 3 in the rear = 6 planes. They may have had another aircraft fill in for #6,
28 Pilotboi : You know what, I thought I saw some turbofans on that military plane. I had only caught a glimpse of it from Clyde Morris while driving. But I asked
29 Cubsrule : I suspect the recent increase in ORD-JAX to 3x Airbus won't help DAB's case any, unfortunately. It would be nice to see UA pick up another Florida ro
