What Just Landed At TPA With 4 Engines?

Sun Feb 19, 2006 5:53 am

Something just flew past my house with 4 engines and I only caught a fleeting glimpse of it. I do not see it on any of my flight trackers either. Could anybody please help?
I dont want to miss out on something really neat at the airport!

Thanks!

It was a Lowa's 707 (N88ZL) flying in from PIE. Information from FlightAware. Arrived at 1524hrs.

Lowas? Whats that?

If you're not busy, get your camera and get out to FLL.....if you're lucky, he will still be on the ground by the time you get there.

LOL! Well, it will take me about 4 hours to drive to FLL from TPA. Do you think he will still be in FLL by then?  Wink J/K
Thanks for the info though!

Where did ya'll find that info? I have about 4 different flight trackers and none of them showed a 707!!!!

Ahhhhh, I found it when I checked out the PIE departures but could not find it when looking at TPA arrivals. Wonder why he would fly from PIE to TPA?
Thanks!!!!!

Maybe there was yet ANOTHER accident on I-275 North near the Kennedy Blvd exit, and he wanted to avoid it.  Smile

Hahaha, sorry about that SWA! I had been tracking JT's 707 before I came across your post, so when I opened it, I assumed without thinking that you were talking about it arriving at FLL....not too often these days that one can talk about two airborne 707s. Obviously a more thorough study of the subject would have spared me the embarassement, but I did manage to change my post accordingly....whew!  rotfl

Nevermind. It was Bonjovi's. That's neat, not long ago I was looking at pictures of this 707 off the runway in Canada and today I see it (ever so briefly) flying over my house in Tampa!

Did I read flightaware correct? The flight was only 2 minutes. That must have been something to see. Might even be the record for the shortest flight by a 707.

A colleague just told me that there is a Togo Govt B707 sitting on the ramp at AUH right now. Apparently it is a rare -100 series, like Travolta's, so I'm gonna take a walk to the cafe from where I'll be able to catch a glimpse.

Pity it is forbidden to photograph airside here.... grrrr!

I think it's time for an intervention! You must find better music to listen to these days.  biggrin  Plus, Best of Both Worlds was a cheesy Van Haggar/Halen song. Enjoy the show though. He still puts on a great one despite the 80s wannabe hair metal.

Somehow I don't think it did a straight line 9 miles at 240mph!

The flight plan said 19 minutes.

It went to DAB to see the race perhaps ...due back to TPA later Sunday:

Same thing as GMT/Greenwich Mean Time. Since these are all in the eastern time subtract 5 hours (maybe 6 because of Daylight Savings Time?) from the time shown to get the local time.

Hey guys,

just to clarify, N88ZL is due into TPA from DAB at 1531 (Local Time). The Saudi 772 departed back to JED on Friday as SV7205. Will somebody please get out to the airport and get some shots of this beauty?!  yes

Wow, I just saw the B703 depart from DAB. Now that is definitly not something we see everyday. And we thought that Air Force One was a rare event.

Guys,

I happened to be in TPA on Level 9 of the main parking deck and shot these photos of N88ZL.. Enjoy!

I could see it coming from long away (black smoke). That brought back fond memories!

Bon Jovi played the opening of the Daytona 500 today, but they didn't stick around for the race.

I saw the 707-300 arrive at DAB this morning and there was no place for it to park by Sheltair so they made the 707 park on the end of Taxiway Papa. They departed DAB around 3pm today. I got a couple shots, although lousy due to the horrible cloud cover at DAB, of them taking off.

There was a Saudia 777 in TPA!? What was it doing here?
Where did it park? Gee's! I always miss out on the good stuff!
I was out at TPA yesterday snapping some pics over by Raytheon. I got some great shots of 36R departures but could only see the tail of the 707 sticking up. Its engines were running when we pulled up. I would say this was around 3 or 3:30. Had it just landed?
Great pictures Peach! About the time you took those I was feverishly trying to figure out what I had just seen fly over my house! LOL!!!!
