What's Up At MCO Today? 8/19

Fri Aug 20, 2004 8:08 am

I haven't been to work in several days and we rarely hear anything about the goings on, on the cargo side of the field. But driving down Tradeport today I saw 2 ea AN-124's and a B747 in Kalitta Air colors, N702CK to be exact.

Any idea on what they are in town for?

My guess would be hurricane relief stuff.
Here in Tampa we are getting alot of odd cargo jets too.
They said on the news that although the staging area is over at Lakeland Linder Airport the airplanes that need to fly in to bring supplies are too big to use Linder so they are arriving in TPA and being trucked over to Lakeland for dispersal (the supplies that is  Big grin )

I heard that the AN-124s are relief supplies, but I am not sure about the rest.
