The last two weeks have brought some unusual visitors to what is normally a very boring airport. Here in West Palm Beach the airport is usually scattered with 737s and MD-80s. Maybe the summer heat is getting to me and I'm seeing things that are not actually here, but in the past two weeks the airport has been visited by an IL-76 an AN-124 and currently a North American 757 is in the house.
I heard the AN-124 is used by the Saudi Arabian government to buy Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopters (built in South Florida) to ship them overseas, but I haven't been able to confirm. And I have no idea why the IL-76 or the North American 757 were in town. Any clues....or is it just the heat getting to me.
