Tradewinds A300

Tue May 02, 2000 6:20 pm

I saw a Tradewinds(?) Airlines A300 tonight at LAX. I have never heard of this airline, but i'm assuming that it's a freight operation, since the A300 had no passenger windows. This plane taxied right in front of me before turning onto 25R to takeoff. Can anyone give me info on where this plane was headed and what kind of cargo it was carrying? Thanks,
