Quoting Tiger119 (Reply 5): As often as I pass IND on I70 I have only seen an FX 757 one time. Can not wait to see more of them at the hub!
What time of day do you drive past the hub? I work the night sort and I have seen 3 757's parked on the norh ramp. Usually at Gates 48 and 50. When I'm leaving around 3:30 a.m, there is usually 1, but this week, 2 757's parked way down around Gates 68 or 70 (in Plainfield). I don't know where they go. One of them I see early on in the evening, which I believe goes to MEM after the Heartland Sort.

Quoting Stratosphere (Reply 2): I am not at work now but I believe we have 15 in service right now.
Wow! It seems like only yesterday the 1st was delivered! I thought the 757F was to replace the 727's? Is that the case? For what I'm hearing the 757F is being used to down-gauge A310 routes? Or have I read to much into a few posts? When was the entry into service?
Quoting Flaps (Reply 10): They do bulk load. Mail and document bags usually in forward holds and the same plus late bulk and inaccessible haz in the aft.
Thank you. Very interesting.

Quoting Wrenchon727 (Reply 6): The MD10 services LAS on the morning side from MEM and turns and goes back to MEM. The MEM evening turn flight is a A300. December the MD10 will turn the morning side and the night side from MEM.
I've never heard of anyone use that term before. That end of the airport is usually referred to as part of Plainfield. I know it isn't, but its' more of a joking manner of how far it was from the old terminal days.
