Delta Had A 767 In PVD Saturday Afternoon..

Sun Sep 07, 2003 1:46 pm

I took a quick trip to Rhode Island this weekend, and my mom lives just a mile from T.F. Green Airport. I always look up at the traffic flying in and out and much to my surprise I spotted a DL 767-200 (nc) yesterday afternoon on takeoff from runway 5. It was around 2:00p. Is this the regularly scheduled equipment or a ship swap? Also, when I flew in Friday night I saw an Air Luxor A330-200 parked at the gate! Interesting!

Passur.com says it was going to Buffalo - it also says it was a 767-300.

Had to be the Patriots.

Delta has the Patriots charter contract and uses PVD instead of BOS for the convenience (B767-300). This is a normal thing pretty much every weekend during the football season, as PVD is usually used by visiting teams as well (with other large airlines' aircraft). The Air Luxor A330-200 is a weekly summer charter to PDL (Azores) and operates every Friday night.
