A Lot Of Charters Into PHL The Last 2 Days?

Fri Oct 25, 2002 4:33 am

I the past 2 days, a NWA 747-200 arrived in PHL from MSP yesterday, and as of 2 this morning it hadn't departed yet, then today ATA has chartered 3 L-1011's from IND(one at 5:00am, 5:21am, and 11:40am) and an AN-124 from Houston that arrived this afternoon. Anyone know what the reason is for these charters we rarely get these kinds of planes in PHL. Will they be there tomorrow, i'd like to get some pictures.

The NWA B747 N613US flew to MIA today for a cruise charter.
It had 438pax onboard!!!!! It will return from MIA to PHL on
Monday Oct 28th. I was just going to create a topic for the NWA 747
at MIA. That is a pretty rare sight down here...
