For all of you spotters in the ROC area, a Northwest Airlines 757-200 will be arriving at 5:00PM EST from CLE. It is a charter for the Cleveland Browns who are scrimmaging the Buffalo Bills this weekend. I am not sure when the plane is leaving though.....

NW's gates are in a great shooting location from inside the landside terminal...if I were there I'd love to get pictures! Always good to hear about an unusual a/c at home in ROC. Has FedEx substituted any A300's or MD-10's in for the A310?

When NW (or other airlines, for that matter) operate sports charters do they usually use the gates in the regular terminal? Seems like they might not want the publicity and might want a bit of privacy instead of just walking through the terminal.

I always wondered why a plane gets designated a -200 when there never was a -100. The 727 and 737 and 747 all could rationalize that change in designations because there were differences between the variants.
Anyway, cool on getting the 757! Here in Manchester, NH we've thus far had 757s only from United on two out their four flights here (the others are A320s). Next month USAirways brings this type in for two out of their 5x nonstops to PHL.
As for FedEx, we get the A310 from Indianapolis each day. In one of the stranger routings, this plane heads back out one hour after it arrives, and flies--empty--to Boston! The other day, this aircraft took off from Manchester in about 3,000 feet of runway and never pulled up its gear!!! Before our long runway was shut down for lengthening, this flight was opeated by a DC-10. UPS, though, sticks with a mix of A300-600s and 757s here...despite only our 'short' runway @ 7,500 feet being available.
