Anyone from Houston here? I heard IAH has a scheduled service to Luanda in Angola (for the oil industry) courtesy of World Airways' MD11.
At Heathrow (my own home port) there is so much interesting stuff that nothing short of a Pan Am 707-120 materialising straight out of a timewarp onto the glideslope would provoke actual surprise. Last time I was there (Sunday before last), I saw a private 747SP, a pair of Cathay 747s parked, something from the Czech AF, a private Swiss 757, a Biman DC10 in interim ex-Canadi>n livery (looking gorgeous), an obscure Algerian A310 (Khalifa Airlines), half a dozen parked Concordes...
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

In Brussels, we already had a visit of the 'Beluga', carrying new parts of a A340-tail.
I once saw two F-16 taking of here.
Sometimes there are also heavy military airplanes like C-5's,... I even saw a Starlifter once...
You see, Brussels is also an interesting airport!

Miami get's the occasional Saudia Arabian jet, usually a private jet (757 I think). Part of the Saudi Arabian Royal Family live on Miami's Fisher Island, a private island neighbourhood and country club of about 400 in downtown Miami accesible only by car ferry. We've also gotten some Royal Jordanian. Finnair flies on the occasion to FLL, via Bangor, Maine. And the occasional Concorde charter comes too. Air Force One is a common visitor to MIA as well.
