A DL 763 was doing some training in LAN yesterday. Buddy of mine who is a police officer there called me wondering about it, said they and the airport were getting a ton of calls about the plane from concerned citizens. Found an article about it online, the comments from the readers was the best part.

All I can say is that paranoia is alive and well in Lansing, Michigan.


I believe there was another thread on here that said they were shooting touch and goes with a 767 at GRR.

LOL, like this one from "Tinpan":

Low flying around the STATE CAPITAL with a huge airliner that can't even land in lansing. Calling it a training exercise. Yea right. HOGWASH.

Apparently they aren't aware of the fact that 5X has flown and does fly both the 763 and A300 into LAN.

I wondered what DL was doing with a 763 in GRR. I saw it fly over the other day and couldn't figure it out.

Apparently, they aren't much aware of anything.  Wink

You can't fix stupid.

I feel dumber just reading those comments. Even funnier how they think they are "rookie" pilots.

Do terrorists even know where Lansing is? Will it really be on their target shortlist??  Smile

NW was going to fly DC-10 into LAN a few years ago when MSU's football team was playing at Hawaii.

Due to runway length, they couldn't do LAN-HNL, so the team bussed down to DTW, to fly DTW-HNL. The return was supposed to fly HNL-LAN, however a day or two prior a NW DC-9 overran the runway on landing due to poor braking action due to snow.
After that, they decided to just land in DTW instead.

I can't help but laugh at the paranoia in those comments. People need to learn how to lighten up and actually believe what people tell them instead of thinking they know better.

I hate the general public at times! Its seems in this country, when it comes to airports and aviation, people literally drop a 100 IQ points. The people I see at airports, it amazes me they are allowed out in public by themselves. Ohh well...I can only  banghead

That's funny. I like LAN...a teeny tiny little airport scared by big airplanes.

This is all the underwear bomber's fault. Who the hell bombs a flight to Detroit? Now Michiganers think they're target #1. Note: You're not even in the top 50.

Think this is due to the NWA/Delta merger. The 757 and 767 share a common type rating but NWA never flew the 767 so the 757 pilots at NWA now have to do 3 takeoffs and 3 landings in the 767 to finish their 767 "differences training".

No. The only one thinking that is you. But thats ok, you New Yorkers can keep wearing the Bullseye, we here in Michigan have no problem with that.

They cant do that with a couple of sim sessions and an IOE in the airplane????

The f-DL guys did their first flights in a 767 with pax in the back on IOE, so why not the f-NW guys when they transition? I guess its an approved program, but it seems like its a lot more expensive than sims and an IOE. Is sim availability a problem?

As a Michigander myself who lives in the rural part of the state where no large aircraft are normally seen it would be a big deal and a part of panic if one was not expected to be in the area and it was without notice. Sure we are a bit jumpy up here. It would be like seeing the a-380 trying to land on a aircraft carrier that would cause panic on deck would it not.
If you airlines want to use our airspace for training just give us notice and we will not be alarmed by it. Furthermore a 767 landing at LAN I would highly doubt it the DC-9 and B-727's strain to stop before the end of the runway upon landing a 767 well you will find it in MSU football stadium finally stopped if it lands to the east to the west it will be in GRR.
Heck here at PLN we are lucky to see a DC-9 or 727 once a year or if the United Auto Workers have their retreat at Black Lake in Cheboygan/Onaway they use a NWA 757 which I almost ran into a 18 wheeler semi and almost crashed thru the airport fence seeing it land here at PLN. Thank you NWA for cleaning off the runway of sand left over from the winter.

Big deal, sure... but "panic?" What is there to "panic" about about a 767 doing touch and goes?
