Went to CLT today to see the DL 763 that brought the Saints into town for tomorrow's NFL game and noticed a FedEx plane not in it's usual spot and then noticed it was a MD11. Anyone know why it's here? Anyone familiar with CLT, it's in front of the smaller hangar.


On another note, as I type right now, a US 757 is doing an engine test on taxiway echo where the fuel farm is. Is this a usual thing? He's running the engines up for about a minute or two then back to idle. Did that 3 times and now is heading back to the larger hangar.

Did you see McCain's 737 come in or leave today? I figured he would have went into CLT, but I guess there was a slight chance he could fly into Concord (JQF), since his appearance was in Concord, about 20 minutes from the airport.

With that flight number I'd say it was a charter.

No, but I did see what looked like 2 Northwest Airbus over around the Wilson Air center.

The FX MD-11F is N602FE. It is in CLT for a charter from CDG-JFK-CLT, FX 9617. It is departing Sunday afternoon empty around 1420 local if any of you want to try and get a pic of her.

I never knew FedEx did charters. You don't happen to know what it brought here do you? Thanks by the way!

It is a military charter and is currently gone tech with airframe vibration. Fdxco is right about the scheduled departure of Sunday. It is going to McGuire AFB after it leaves CLT then on to HHN then DXB where the cargo area floor locks will be converted back to commercial freight.

Brought in some kind of product for Michelin Tire. We did a similar one last week to YHZ. And yes, FX has been doing charters for years. 9617 is leaving from CLT empty to ferry up to WRI Sunday. Should see a pretty short take off roll for this one.

I saw it on Flightaware last night coming on from MKE. I was wondering what in the world it was coming to CLT for then found out today that it is for the Saints going to London like someone has already said. Just wish I could have seen a classic leave CLT!
