Antonov At DFW?

Sat May 17, 2003 7:54 am

I was flying in on a Delta CRJ in from AUS to DFW on 9 May 2003 when to my surprise I looked out and saw an Antonov 124-100 (I believe) parked around cargo as I landed. Does anyone know who operates this flight, what the heck it carries, and where it goes? Any info is much appreciated as I am both clueless and curious.

Cheers,

Must be one of the numerous charters performed by Antonov, Volga Dnepr and Polet throughout the world. Cargo can be anything from a whole bunch of crates or pallets to a 150 tonne turbine.  Smile
