DL 767 In Gdansk, Poland?

Fri Sep 30, 2011 7:22 am

Yesterday evening (Sept. 29) I noticed a DL 767, nose number 1613, in both WAW and GDN. Would anyone know what it was doing flying between those airports? Approx 2245 departure from WAW, 2325 landing in GDN. Flew the same route on a LOT flight, and when I first saw the 767 taxiing in WAW I assumed it was some sort of diversion. But then I saw the same plane land and taxi behind my LOT flight in GDN. Some sort of charter? There's a big European conference in Gdansk, and a large EU meeting in Warsaw this weekend, but none of these events involve large U.S. participation. Maybe it was flown up to GDN for parking, as there are a lot of VIP aircraft for heads of state and government delegations at WAW. But what would it be doing in WAW in the first place? A curious mind would like to know!
Hoya Saxa!!

On the flight you saw, it was repositioning between military charter flights. I'd rather not give additional details.

The Delta is still standing at GDN airport (I'm looking at the plane right now). It will leave for Afghanistan with military troupes later this evening.

The troops will go to Afghanistan, but the aircraft will not.
