747 At CLT?

Mon Oct 03, 2005 10:59 am

I flew into CLT today and noticed an all white 747 off RW 36R...(i am no runway expert just trying to recall by looking at google-maps)...Any ideas who's it is and why/what its doing there? I fly into CLT often and this is the first time I have seen it.?
thanks,

Off 36R sounds like over by cargo... was it a cargo bird?

Looks like Atlas Air, and likely military charter. Been a couple in past week or so. Came in from Europe via Gander, and departed to bases like Dover, Charleston AFB.
