A friend of mine reported that there was an IL-76 at KCI. I went back to Monday but saw nothing in flightaware.com so I am assuming it was a military charter since it seems like four days is a long time to keep a cargo a/c on the ground in the middle of the US.
Does anyone have an info on this?
Also, what specifically are the rules regarding whether forgien military charter have to file a normal IFR flightplan?

Quoting Foxecho (Reply 1): Where'd your friend see it parked, because I know there's a rare Aircraft parked there but its nowhere near a IL76, there's a Royal Air Force VC10 on the pad next to one of the terminals.....
...and it's a good lookin' beauty

Quoting AJO (Reply 8): Excuse me, but where is KCI? The system doesn't recognize it, and the Great Circle Mapper says it's a non-existing code...
I assume Kansas City International .... one of the annoying airports that the locals have initials for, that have nothing to do with IATA or ICAO codes ... like PTI for GSO, and TIA for Tampa. That's a whole 'nother thread in itself ... and has been!
A quick Google search on "KCI airport" will find it.
I'd rather be on the ground wishing I was in the air, than in the air wishing I was on the ground!
