Yes, Eric, there is a regularly scheduled widebody into ROC for the first time since 1973! But it's an A310, not an A300. FedEx will probably make substitutions from time to time as airlines do; so you might have actually seen an A300. But the A310 is the regularly scheduled aircraft. It replaced two daily 722's to MEM.
The aircraft started flying into ROC in late August, shortly before the airshow. I saw some of them when I was home in September...what a beautiful sight!
