I wish I was still living in Daytona to see it come in.

Does anyone else find this comment interesting?
|Quoting RL757PVD (Reply 2):|
Very interesting picture there, I wonder what it was, esp considering that JAX MCO and PBI each have AA staffing, while DAB does not.

What's the nearest airport, I want there now!
|Quoting B777ER (Reply 11):|
was doing some work just south of the runway at DAB when I heard an aircraft approaching. I turned around, looked up and much to my surprise, an AA A300 was landing on 25R at DAB. Nice to be in the right place at the right time for once.
What was really funny was two ERAU kids with tele-photo lens were taking pics off the end of 7R (the smaller of two runways). The way the airport is set up, they could not see the terminal or the main runway as they were standing along a road called Bellevue. Here they were snapping pics of the ERAU planes doing touch and goes off the tiny GA runway with no clue that an A300 just made an emergency landing on the main runway.

You are confusing me - first you say it landed on 25R, then you are talking about 7R, which are opposite ends of the airport. Were you around Clyde Morris when this happened? I am assuming maybe operations were happening on 7R and 7L, but since the plane needed a runway quick it was not going to head downwind and circle to land on 7L, but he just shot right to 25R.
Where did this jet park? Right on the apron near the terminal. Did it unload at all or anything else and take off and continue on to its destination?
|Quoting B777ER (Reply 13):|
Sorry for the confusion. It did land on 25R. When I went up the Bellvue extension that goes around the airports southern side, I saw the guys with the camera's standing off to the side of the road just off the end of 25L/7R (they were on the 7R end)
|Quoting B777ER (Reply 13):|
The jet parked on the gate that sticks out at the end of the main terminal. This gate is used for widebody aircraft. I am not talking about the one gate over at the international terminal either. The gate I am talking about juts out from the end of the main terminal. When they pull the jetway back from the plane, it allows the plane to simply turn to the right a little and taxi away without pushback services.
