Just for you local spotter. A Transaero 777 arrived this morning from Moscow (DME) and taxied straight to the UAL MOC. The view from the tower was difficult due to the dark hangar, but it appeared the right engine was coming off.
Anyone have any information on the aircraft? UA SOC had no information on when the a/c would be leaving.
Given that there's a significant Russian community in San Francisco, I'm a bit surprised that no one's doing a direct flight from SFO-Moscow...really, the only way to get to Moscow from SFO is by flying to LAX, IAD, JFK, or a European hub. IIRC SU used to fly to SFO, but I guess they couldn't make it work...I wonder why...
