When I lived in MN, they used to have many VIPs from the Mid East fly to the Mayo Clinic for treatment with huge entourages. Since 9/11 that has apparently changed as its more difficult to get visas for just anybody in the VIP party except the immediate family and security detail. This has had a major impact in Rochester on the hotels and even the food shelves. Food shelves you ask?? Apparently many of these VIPs used to bring along a lot of their favorite fresh foods too.(MN not being known for its Mideast cuisine!) The food shelves often would get literally a ton of dates at the end of the trip as they usually brought far more than was needed.

Is the 7200ft runway at ALB long enough for a A340 to start and make it at least over the atlantic? I don't think so ...

DAMN....of course I'm in FL right now and missed that going on back home!!!!! I would have totally checked that out yesterday. Oh well. better luck next time.
Where did they keep the planes? I can imagine they would be over by the cargo stand or by the ANG helicopters.

That's the last thing I could've ever expected... a QR A330/A340 in ALB... I wanna see those pics! The last time I went there (April), the most interesting plane I shot there was a DL 737-800...

It was definitely a 340-200. The reg was A7-HHK (from memory, I'll correct if I screwed it up)
