Hi:

Recently I saw a photo of a Varig MD-11 take off from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, what is the reason because Phoenix isn't a regular destination of Varig.

Here is the photo:

I have never heard of, nor seen any Varig terminal or gate in all of Sky Harbor International Airport. We do occasionally recieve cargo flights from diff. airlines and charters, but those are usually with unmarked a/c. I have no idea why Varig would be in AZ.

This is not a Cargo flight but could be a charter flight.

PP-VQK was receiving maintenance work at Dynair Tech at PHX in early January.

I had seen a Varig plane several years ago at Sky Harbor Terminal 4, wondering exactly the same thing. Turns out that a Brazilian soccer team was in town for an exhibition game.
