NW DC10 In SAT?

Sat Jan 24, 2004 2:43 am

Hi folks... driving on the freeway this morning on a somewhat drizzly day. Low hanging overcast skies and some fog trying to stick around, when I saw a DC-10 approaching far off in the distance. Tried to speed close enough to the runway but didn't make it in time. As I was on the turnaround, I caught a glimpse of the DC-10 turning on the taxiway and it sure looked like Northwest. It had a red tail and a darker colored body. Everything was coated in gray today because of the weather so I couldn't tell exactly.

Anybody have any info? Was it NW?

Just curious...

Thanks,
Cody in SAT

Yep, a NW D10 and a DC9 arrived as ferry flights from MSP to SAT friday.

NW jets routinely appear on the ramp of Singapore Aerospace at SAT...mostly DC9s.
