124's you get at MDT but I'm sure not a great amount so maybe of interest to someone.

Actually there is another AN124 on the ground at MDT right now. POT2097 will make two. The first 124 arrived around 1130L on 3 May. The aircraft is parked on the old terminal ramp.

Good question. I had heard from one of the pilots I work with that the aircraft are taking some type of heavy equipment/pumps overseas.

The last time we had AN124 at MDT was in 2003. Now there are two here at the same time.

The tail you could cleary see over the old terminal going down the exit ramp to the airport. That thing is huge. Anyone know when it's departing?

Hmm, that would be worth a trip to see. I remember a decade back a 124 came into MDT and I went down to see it (well, I was a young sprout at the time so my aunt had to drive me to the airport), sat there all day hoping it would depart but it didn't leave until after dark.

There used to be a swell place to spot planes @ KMDT; my uncle and I used to park near the AMP hangar (not sure who owns that now), the employees didn't care and actually invited me in to tour their Beech and Saab one time, and we'd stand down in the field by the fence. I wouldn't think that'd be a good idea these days; the last time I went down there was well before 9/11/2001 and I can imagine there'd be suspicion about some bearded mid-twenties dude out there with a camera...

Not to mention the AMP hangar belongs to someone else now, and I'd just assume that means my welcome ticket to use their parking lot is expired!

The AMP hanger is now the FBO for MDT...AvFlight Harrisburg.

I'll be headed to the airport for work in about an hour. I'm assuming both are still there. It should be a pretty cool site.
