Quick Question for those who know more than I-
I had the oddest traffic call today- taxing to 27L for takeoff, I was advised to hold well short of Taxiway Bravo for traffic, and proceeded to watch a as a Northwest Trijet (either a DC-10 or MD
-11) taxied immediately in front of me on Taxiway Bravo.
Tri-Jet's are no stranger to OAK
(Fedex), but anything larger than a 727 is a definite rarity on the north field... furthermore, NWA? I didn't even know they flew tri-jets, and they definitely don't service OAK
The DC-10 parked over between Kaiser and the new T hangars, it was sitting there when I taxied back to the old T's after my round of touch and go's.
Any idea what she was doing there? It was kinda cool to see such a bird up on our modest north field.
