I was spotting from the parking garage today at PHL and saw an Evergreen International 747 classic (I'm not sure what exactly) depart the UPS ramp and depart. On my handheld I picked it up as "Evergreen 9611 heavy" (I may be off a bit on the callsign, but it did begin with "9") I'm not too frequent a spotter, but I didn't think that this was a usual occurrence. Being that it departed from the UPS ramp, which is all the way on the opposite side from "Cargo City", and that it had a 9- flight number, was this a charter for UPS? Or was it just an Evergreen Charter? Anyone know why it was in Philly?
On a side note, it took off like a rocket, using about the same length of runway as the USX ERJ that preceded it.
