Air Horizons In PIT?

Mon Mar 06, 2006 10:51 am

Hello,
Being a yank and all, im not too familiar w/ european chearter outfits. The other day while workin on delta (Im a ramp rat) I saw a 757 land that ive never seen before. I couldnt catch the Reg. but it was an Air Horizons 757. After a little research I saw that they are now kaput. Anyone know who their 757 is flying for? again, sorry I didnt get the Reg #. Thanks for the help!

Correct me if im wrong. Npw it's coming into PIT, its one of the 3 new 752 US Airways purchased from ATA/Air Horizons. And PIT is a maintenaince hub for A319/320/321 and CFM-56 engines for US.  Smile  wave

Gotcha,
I didnt hear that US bought any 75's. We dont see many here anymore. Heck we dont see much mainline at all anymore. Maybe 10 mainlines (including ERJ-170's if you call em mainline) at a time at the B gates. Plus maybe 15 commuters. Nothing like the good ole days.

Yea I knew we were a MX base, just didnt know what for. I work for Delta so I really dont pay attention to US :P Frankly, I hope they go under lol.
