Airborne Express DC-8 At JFK

Thu Aug 01, 2002 5:52 pm

Everytime I go to JFK, I always see this Airborne Express DC-8 sitting there in the same position.

Anyone know if it's actually used? And if so, when? I'd love to see it departing or coming in.

Back in the early spring, there used to be a JFK-MCO DC8 flight from them that came in around 2pm (but that stopped several months ago). My guess is they go out at night?

The same thing happens at SWF with Airborne and FedEX. They are there all day, leave around 10PM and are back by 6:00 AM the next day. Take a ride some night around 2:00 am and see if it's there then.

It leaves around 10:30 or 11pm for ILN, used to be flt 388, not sure if this is still the current flt number.
