I can see what looks to be a Southwest 737 near the customs ramp(ramp A). Is anyone able to confirm what this is and why it is here? Thank You.

I would guess a charter for the Daytona 500 NASCAR event. The actual race is Feb 14. Qualifying starts Feb 6 with several events between. http://www.daytonainternationalspeed...Tickets-Events/Event-Calendar.aspx

FlightAware doesn't show anything, unless I'm looking in the wrong spot.

Yeah, it came in a few days ago (Sunday I believe), from CHS, IIRC. Looks like a former Hooters Air 737, but I haven't been that close to it. If I can remember, I'll try to get a decent picture of it tomorrow, if it doesn't leave tonight.

The Space Shuttle Endeavour is scheduled to fly Feb 7. I guess DAB would be premium viewing. Many spectators arrive in Orlando MCO/SFB and drive down.

A military charter might explain the absence in Flightaware. I would think those would go into KCOF

Aircraft is not a WN bird. As said above, it's one of those "ex-Hooter" 737-200's in town for the races.

252TR is an ACY based aircraft for SkyKing... probably doing the Harrahs charter this weekend from DAB-ACY.


I have no association with Spirit Airlines

Their main runway is closed and what ever plane that uses KCOF that cant use the small runway will use KMLB. That is why we still have ATI and get the KC135's, C-5's, C-17's, C-130's and so on.
