Where Did All The ATA J-31's Go?

Tue Aug 01, 2000 5:37 am

I saw about 5 Chicago Express Jetstream 31's on 3 different ramps at KGRR (Kent Co. Intl.) Were they all bought? In storage? Why so many at one airport?

Cause of the new Saabs
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

Yea, everyone knows that, but why are so many J-31's in Grand Rapids? Someone has to know.

Isn't GRR where Chicago Express has its maint/hangar operation? I know that it is moving to Gary, but I think that it's there now. All the Junkstreams are being replaced with Saabs. Presumably, they are on the carrier's ramp as they are for sale or are being readied to return to their lessors.
