SLC AN-124's

Sat May 06, 2006 3:24 pm

There is a massive assault of AN-124's into Salt Lake this evening. Three of these monsters arrive all inside of one hour late this evening. Does anyone know what is going on? Two are coming out of PKC and one is out of ANC.

Which airport is PKC, the scroll-over doesn't show the airport? Anyway, they probably delivered (or will pick up) some large machinery that requires multiple planes to be transported. Regardless of what it is, pics are required Big grin .

Just watched the last two takeoff from 16L. They headed east after a clockwise 270 over the lake. Anybody know where they're going?
