Do all flights to/from Cuzco still have to arrive and leave before 10am?
|Quoting Commavia (Reply 1):|
While I could be wrong, and perhaps Aero Continente once flew 767s or DC10s in there, but to my knowledge, the largest regularly scheduled aircraft ever to fly into Cusco was the AA 757s that were flying MIA/JFK-LIM-CUZ during a period back around 1997-1998 when the Peruvian government asked AA to fill the domestic capacity gap and boost CUZ tourism. Those flights only lasted, IINM, a few months, though.
|Quoting AlitaliaMD11 (Reply 4):|
The last scheduled flight out of CUZ is a LAN flight LIM which leaves around 15:10.
|Quoting LAXspotter (Reply 5):|
Why is that? something relating to fog or weather realated?
|Quoting Alessandro (Reply 9):|
Is it a former Interflug plane?
|Quoting Airevents (Reply 8):|
Does anybody know what the German Air Force A310 was doing there? After all, I am paying for it with my taxes
|Quoting RFields5421 (Reply 7):|
Just like Lukla, which is 1,700 feet lower in elevation, no one in their right mind wants to be flying an airplane into/ out of this airport unless they have excellent daytime visibility.
|Quoting AlitaliaMD11 (Reply 6):|
The airport has no VFR nor runway approach lights, runway lights, or taxiway lights. When there is bad weather aircraft are not allowed to land either, like today.
|Quoting RJ_Delta (Reply 16):|
Maybe it was a DC-8.
|Quoting OB1504 (Reply 18):|
I seem to remember something about Faucett having flown the DC-8 to CUZ. It also makes sense since I don't think CF ever flew the 707.
