A DL 744 has been on the ground in TPA since yesterday morning. Does anyone know why and perhaps when it will be departing. It is a rare sight in TPA and I would love to watch it gracefully take to the skies if possible.
Three years ago when Oregon and Auburn where in the Fiesta Bowl that was charter central for DL. Two A330s and a 744. World had a MD-11 in PHX as well as United chartering ASU and Oregon this year. Plus there was an A330 parked over the weekend down by west cargo for the rose bowl.
Worked/Planned Loads on: CRJ-2,CRJ-7,CRJ-9,737-4,737-7,737-8,757-2,757-3,767-3,A319,A320,A330,MD83,MD90
well there is a discussion about this in a couple other threads - one is NCAA charters.
Michigan football team came down Saturday before Christmas on an A330, the band/cheerleaders came down a few days back on an A330 I believe Sat afternoon.
The 747 ferried in empty New Years Eve from BWI after operating as a troop charter Rammstein - BWI. It sat at TPA for 2 days - took combined Michigan band and football team back today to DTW, saw it land at DTW around 12:30pm
