Delta Heavy At AUS Today

Sun Sep 09, 2001 1:31 pm

Today at AUS there was a Delta 767, although it may have been a 757, but I am almost positive it was a 767. The reason I hesitate to say with certainty is that due to the way it was parked my view of it from the spotters area was somewhat limited, I was looking at half of the body and a wing from the back. But driving off I got somewhat of a better look. Anyway, I was wondering if this is a new scheduled aircraft or a replacement. My first thought was that it was a replacement aircraft but while it was there, there was a Delta md-80, as well as 1 or 2 Delta 737s, which are more Delta aircraft than I have ever seen there at any one time. Also if it was a replacement it seems rather large considering the largest aircraft they usually send there is a 727, although in the off chance that it was a 757 mabye its not so much of a stretch. Any info or guesses would be appreciated.

Must have been flight 9689, a 757 in from ATL. No idea why it was there though, the 9000 series flight numbers mean it was being ferried for some reason.

Thanks for the responses, I'm curious as to whether any of the austin spotters saw this. Also did anyone see the 747s from IAH that I heard were diverted there once during this summer when houston was flooding? If so, where were they parked and how long were they there?
