Why Was LCF At Rockford?

Atlas Air took over from Evergreen International the flying of Boeing's Large Cargo Freighters last week. One of the first flights was from KPAE to KRFD on Friday, July 30, and the LCF remained at KRFD all weekend.

Does anyone know why? Is KRFD a maintenance base for Atlas?

I know Atlas has been promoting KRFD as a better place than KORD for their normal freight operations (http://www.rrstar.com/businessrockford/x1332181998/Cargo-airline-pleased-with-RFD-after-2nd-test-run), but an LCF is not a normal freighter, and does not usually stop at KRFD.

I thank you in advance for any info you have on this subject.

KRFD had an airshow/open house this weekend, and that aircraft was on static display.

And for anyone in the region, the show at RFD is outstanding. Lots of flying, and lots of static displays that you can get up-close and personal with.

I was, however, quite surprised to see the LCF.
