Forgot about the Sierra Pacific Flights (SPA flights same as tail numbers N703S and N712S) too. Add to my original set a B6 flight from VCV (returned to LGB, probably to resume normal ops).
The A333 returned to DTW, so the VCV explanation doesn't totally solve the mystery. Would an international charter to KUW or somewhere pass through DTW for fuel before dropping pax off at the COS, which seems to be the final destination for these flights? Would any military flights outprocess troops through VCV before heading to their actual base (like Fort Carson)?
At least one of the WN planes returned to PHX as SWA8601. Can anyone confirm if 8xxx numbers are military charters for WN? TZ used to use a system like that.
