Any ideas on why this routing today?

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

that's sweet

I think they have gotten L-1011s before, and I swear once I saw/heard a DC-10/L-1011 (only saw underneath) climbing out from ALB


Anyone know if they are ever going to get their runways extended? I think they were trying to go from 7,200 to 9,000 or so............

It's probably charter flight for Delta vacation package to Bermuda. Yes, it looks strange route with unusual flight direct.

Any passenger jumbo flight routings to Rochester NY? I'd love to see a passenger jumbo at the hometown airport. I saw a US A321 at the gate when I was home in early June, but our only regular jumbo is FedEx's daily A310 to MEM.

It's interesting to look at the unusual routes, because it means something unusual is going on such as a divert, aircraft delivery or ferry flight, football team charter, or something. Also, it's pretty rare for some airports to see widebodies. That which is rare draws more attention.  Smile

This is not the first time a widebody jet has landed at ALB. Don't forget several years ago Bill Clinton came into town to campaign for then Gov. Mario Cuomo with the Air Force One 747. ATA sometimes has special charter flights out of ALB using it's L-1011s.
