Ex- Vanguard 737 Touch And Go At RFD

Sat Mar 01, 2003 6:21 am

Does anyone know why an ex-Vanguard aircraft was doing touch and goes at KRFD for about 2 hours this morning? It was an all white B737-200 having an N# ending in "NJ." It was cleared to Moline after it left here.

Rockford Airport in Rockford IL. It's near Chicago and it is used by UPS and is a divert airport for ORD for bad weather.

Since we're talking about Vanguard 732's ...
N128NJ filed a flight plan from Keflavik to Stavanger earlier this week .. it had to divert to Oslo due to the weather, but since then I do not know what happened to it. Anyone???
