Attention MSY spotters/enthusiasts...

Will do. Should be quite a sight parked at C-11. It'll be the first time that VS has been here since they brought in a 744 back in '04.

Apparently we are going to have more Euro charters than usual this year...this VS one, a couple in December, and some more in January and February.

Hmm, I don't know. Do you know any good escort services in Kenner?  Silly

The tow bar remark reminds me.....some years ago, a KLM 744 diverted in here (see the photo section for my photos of it), parked on concourse C, then broke the tow bar on pushback. The ground service people had to scam one off someone else to complete the pushback.....
