DL 744 Departing MSP Tonight - Question

Fri Feb 24, 2012 11:39 pm

Just watched a DL 744 leave MSP (about 5:30pm local), didn't use the usual runway and looked a bit light on takeoff. Upon check, it's headed to KNTD, a naval air station. Is this some sort of military charter?

Yes this is a charter of some sort, probably military as you noted it went to a naval base.

Looking at the flight history it came from HHN (Frankfurt-Hahn) (i.e. HHN-MSP-NTD) so I'm almost positive it's a military charter. Lots of these flights stop in Germany.

I wonder how they sort out who sits in the business elite seats, I am guessing by rank. n
