Delta 763s At ICN And HKG

Sat May 26, 2007 10:31 am

Now that DL is sending some of their 763s to HKG for HMVs, the widget is being seen outside of Japan again. I understand the routing for the flights is via ANC, ICN, and HKG (some are not ERs so can't do the Pacific in one flight) with layovers in ICN for crew rest.

Anyone in S. Korea or HKG have pictures.....

and how many US aircraft do you see in transit between the US and Asia for maintenance? DL isn't the only airline that ferries planes to Asia for maintenance. Delta and 763 stand out since neither are regularly seen in Asia.

I saw a Delta 763 parked near a hanger at ICN during our brief stop there this past Wednesday, while flying SQ 15 SFO-ICN-SIN. I was wondering what it was doing there... Now i know  Smile Thanks!

One at a time.

Continental B763s and B764s come here too.
