Lauda Air 735 At Tinker AFB, OK

Wed Mar 29, 2006 6:54 am

Anyone know why it's here in Oklahoma? It's been around for about a year. I assume it's an ex-Lauda Air but I have no idea. It's in their paint scheme or one VERY close to it. I don't have a reg. # It runs patterns at Tinker often. It was today 3/28 around 1230pm.

I believe this aircraft (a 737-600) is leased by a contractor that provides training to U.S. military crews.

It is used by the Navy for E-6 TACAMO flight deck profeciency training, but it is parked on the E-3 AWACS ramp not on the Navy side.

I saw the same airplane low over CLL last year.

Seems to be for military training purposes as Lt-AWACS already said.
