NW DC10 At Phl?

Sat Jan 12, 2002 11:42 am

On my way home from work tonight I saw what looked like a NW DC10 parked by the former Overseas Terminal at PHL. It was around 2100 EST/0200 Zulu. Anyone have a clue as to what it was doing?

it could have possibly been a charter for the tampa bay bucs for tomorrow's game, but i doubt it because they would have came in earlier. i do remeber back when there was scheduled nwa dc-10 service and remeber seeing 2 dc-10's at the airport at 1 time. and 1 was at the old overseas terminal and one was at terminal E. hopefully it is still there tomorrow i am going sometime mid-mourning for a while.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Charter Jet was a NWA DC-10 according to flight arrivals.com. That was probably it! Hope Philly wins tommorow!

Thats nice to hear, I have been to PHL twice, on TWA MD-80 from a connection in STL. PHL is also the only airport were I got to fly on a 727! It was NWA. Guess we won't see them around for much longer.
