N700TS L-1011 On Recent Flight - FlightAware

Tue Jan 24, 2012 12:42 am

N700TS is the L-1011 that went to Kansas last Feb. It's N number is still registered to the museum, yet on FlightAware, it shows a flight in August from Sanford to Palm Beach. AFAIK, the engines were removed and she was not to fly any more. How could this flight show up? I can see it showing as filed, hell, I could file one for it myself, but it shows that somebody flew that flight. Speed and altitude wise, it's a slam dunk for what I would expect a decrepit airliner to make a short hop at. Did they just use the N number or what?

N700TS

The FAA still shows N700TS to be registered to the museum; it expires next year, so it's not some other plane.

Likely an error in FlightAware's system.

Whatever it was, it was likely a jet. 161nm in 32 minutes topping out a little over 20,000 feet.

That's why I was confused.

But somebody still flew it. I wonder if they used the wrong callsign or something.

They never reached FL180 actually, but the speed is indicative of a jet.

It flew to Kansas City, Missouri. Not Kansas.
