Mystery Aircraft @ SFO

Sun Aug 27, 2006 6:31 am

At 1345 today, an Xtra Airways B737 touched down at SFO and parked at Int'l Gate A10. Its callsign was "ruby Mountain 212". Anyone know why it dropped by?

Usually Xtra Airways (formerly Casino Express) flies gambling charters to/from Wendover, Utah. (ENV)

Ahh yes. I saw that same plane at Wendover yesterday. Nice looking plane. ENV is really getting quite a bit of traffic off of the gaming charter business. They fly from a plethora of Western and Midwestern cities into Wendover for weekend gambling excursions.

We (UA) work these charters up here in PDX. They are pretty easy to work.

Looks like that's what this was, it came from Redding and went to Wendover:
