Spotting Incident @ PVD/DL 738 Charter? 11/4

Sun Nov 06, 2005 8:07 am

I had an incident today with airport police. Never happened before. Kind of funny becuase someone posted in the Boston Airline Show thread about Warwick cops, not kind to spotters. I was parked along airport road, when one of the airport cops drove by me, and told me that you aren't allowed to park there. I've spotted there at least ten times before, and on at least two occasions, the airport police drove right by me, without saying a word. It kinda pissed me off.

Also while I was there (after getting yelled out, I went to the roof of Garage A), I saw a DL738. It seemed like it was waiting for an empty gate for about 10-15 minutes, and when the DH CRJ left, it started taxiing. But to my surprise, it went right past the terminal, and headed over to the north ramp. It was kinda dark so I couldn't make out who if anyone was leaving the plane. The reg. of the plane was N3752. If anyone knows anything about this, or where I can find out, I'd be greatful.

I'm sure it was just a charter or being moved over to remore parking. Nothing really to report.

Flight tracker shows it came in from Boston and is scheduled to fly back shortly....Maybe a weather issue in BOS..?

They don't remote park a/c on the northramp, so thats out. And I am curious what charter it was? Becuase I know DL usually handles the Pats out of PVD.

Remote parking.. It's DAL flight 1181...SLC to BOS. It diverted into PVD from BOS due to weather. It's scheduled to fly back to BOS shortly. I'm sure what you saw was Ops deciding if they wanted to put it at the gate, or remote park it until the weather cleared. They chose to remote park it..

Damn it EMBQA, you beat me to the punch. Damn you!!!

It was a fuel pit stop, plane finally arrived in BOS at 1937, almost 3 hrs behind schedule. It will RON and turn into DL1850 tomorrow morning at 0810.
