NW DC-10 Parked In ANC

Tue Jun 18, 2002 3:06 pm


Just ran a quick search on this, didn't see anything...

Just got all moved to Anchorage this week, have been driving around the field every night. Have noticed a NW DC-10 parked on the North Side near the Cargo Ramps. Does anyone know why this bird has been here for a few days? All the cabin doors are open. Also the other night a NW 757 was parked with it. I thought perhaps they just put the RON birds down there, but the DC10 has yet to move.....Any information?

You can take the pup out of Alaska, but you can't take the Alaska out of the pup.

Flew out of ANC last week and saw an NWA DC-10 parked over at the cargo ramp. Don't know if it was the same one however.

NW has a daily DC10 from MSP-ANC. Perhaps there was a mechanical with this airplane and the flights were canceled.

Flight 843 (I think) A DC-10 comes to ANC everyday. After the plane is de-loaded, the plane is taxied to a remote tarmac (On the Cargo ramp). The plane sits there while other flights come in, and then leave. And early in the morning the plane is taxied back to the gate for an early flight to Detroit or MSP.

This is what a Northwest DC-10 pilot told me. When I visited the cockpit after landing in ANC on June 11.
