I am not 100% certain but I swear I saw this arriving around 1715 or so from across the valley. Highly unusual visitor. Anybody got any details origin ect? Have not seen anything on the tracker. Would love to get some shots if the temperature permits. Forgive me if this has already been discussed.

Could you have seen VA and thought it was Pullmantur? I believe there is a 744 for departs for London around 1700.

tarantulalv...No, you saw correctly! It was a charter from Madrid and did arrive at 1715. It was blocked out on both F/E and F/A. Not sure about the reason for the charter though. McCarranmgr. WHERE ARE YOU????

hum, wonder where it is parked and how long it will be around... I wouldnt mind snapping a picture of that. If it is at Terminal 2 you should be able to get a decent shot from the top of the MGM Grand garage

The aircraft is scheduled to sit on the holding pad in front of T-2 until May 2. It has a 1200 departure time on May 2. If you come out today at around 1500 you will have the rare opportunity to get some great shots as both Virgin 74's will be on the gates as well as Pullmantur’s 74 on the pad directly behind them. It’s rare to have 3 744s on the ground at LAS.

If you guys are still taking off on the 1's like the last two days then it will make for some really good shots! Very interesting seeing that airplane there. I will admit that as we taxied by both my F/O and I were wondering who it was and where it came from.


Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Unfortunately at noon in May you are better off with a 25 departure. Hope Dave or Randall got it!

Agreed! Much to warm and poor lighting conditions to attempt a 01 departure in my opinion at this time of day and year but thanks for the flight details as it did not seem to be published. Saw it leaving from across the valley around 1300 or so

Here she is on the ramp:

There was also a KE A333 here as well over the weekend from Narita. Left a few hours later to ANC. Interesting weekend for sure.

I have a picture I took with a point and shoot from the top of the MGM Garage. Unfortunately its a bit fuzzy and small.... but I had to sell off my good camera for now until I have steady income again.
