747-200 and 747-400 are different raiting and are seperate, a 744 guy can't fly a 742 and vice versa.

I saw it here too.....pretty cool. I saw that the aircraft came in early am sunday then left around 9pm. i also heard some memo about that MSP is "re opening" as a 742 base for millitary and other charters. i bet we also see a few more rev pax flights on the 742 when the situation arises....such as fairly recently one was used on MSP-HNL.

MSP is a 744 pilot base as well.

One of my friend's father is a 744 pilot and he's based in MSP. Also, I met a 742 pilot years ago that was based here as well.
Northwest Airlines will re-open the MSP 747-200 base in May 2008. The base is being re-established primarily to support 747-200 charter service, the vast majority of which involves missions for the U.S. Military. Due to the nature of 747-200 charter service and the timeframe during which trips are finalized, the majority of the positions at the MSP base will be Reserves. A very small number of Blockholder positions will be available.
Although the majority of flying by the MSP 747-200 base will be charter operations, there will be a limited amount of scheduled freighter service flown by MSP-based pilots. The exact type of scheduled freighter trips has not yet been determined. The MSP 747-200 Reserve positions will be focused on charter operations; however, some Reserves could potentially be assigned to support
