Anyone Familiar With Chicago O'Hare

Wed Jan 14, 2004 1:03 am

This morning at around 9:00, an A340 was climbing out of ORD's runway 9R through about 8-10K feet with its nose landing gear was still deployed. Anyone know what this airplanes situation was? I could not decipher the airline from where I was standing. Does anyone familiar with ORD know the airline it could have been?

It would almost have to be an international carrier. Not too many domestics are going to be flying an A340 out of ORD.

My best guess is that it probably was Royal Jordanian or Kuwait. They might have been delayed from their normal night time departure times.

I dont see any flight plans (or actual departures) of A340s yet today (Jan 13th) at ORD. Royal Jordanian tookoff at 7:25pm last night while Kuwait Airlines tookoff at 8:18pm last night. Nothing else since then.
