I saw it today in Ocala (must have just come in from JAX). Not the first time I've seen it there either. OCF isn't far from Greystone. Anyone know why he sends it to OCF?
IIRC there is an ongoing court case or dispute, or something along those lines whereby he's not allowed to fly the 707 into Greystone, hence why it's frequently in OCF
. I'm sure a local will be able to tell us more, but when I was flying in and out of OCF
frequently in March it was there and someone in the airport restaurant told me that was why it was based there. OCF
is a strange, but great airport to land at as there's JT
's 707, as well as 727 freighters along with the GA
crowd, all at an airport with no tower !! It's weird self announcing turning a 2 mile final only to hear there's a 727 catching you up rather fast
Only link I could find anything about the dispute is http://ocala.com/apps/pbcs.dll/artic...25/NEWS/205250405/-1/community0104
which has some info.
