Alaska Airlines In OKC Today

Sat May 20, 2006 1:34 am

Anyone know anything about this? I thought I saw this 734 flying around yesterday evening about 530pm but it was from far enough away I couldn't tell who it was.

I think AAR does maintenance work for AS, and between that and the oddball 9301 flight number, I'd say what you saw was either a ferry in/out, or a testhop...

Quoting OPNLguy (Reply 1):
oddball 9301 flight number

The 9300 series of flight numbers are functional check flights.
Once the aircraft passes, then it will ferry to SEA as a 9000 something
flight number.
AAR does checks on both the MD80s and Boeing aircraft at OKC.
In addition, some check work is done at Abbotsford (YXX) in B.C.

I saw it as I drove in and taxied out around 1630. It had a big Disney world logo on it and was blue. I think it said 50th anny. on the tail but wasn't sure.
