I thought that Swissair was grounded. At about 11 AM today (9-4-01) as I was working at Hawthorne Airport, a Swissair MD-11 flew by on final to 25L at LAX. When I drove by LAX on my way back to VNY(about 1 PM), that MD-11 was sitting at remote parking at LAX.
Was this a scheduled flight, or a pre-position in preparation for a new start for SR. I didn't have my scanner with me, so I wasn't able to get a flight number. Could not make out the reg either.
Just letting you guys know what I saw.
