Garuda A330 In BWI?

Fri Sep 28, 2012 11:52 am

Hi everyone, on my way to the terminal at BWI today, I noticed an A330-300 in Garuda's livery parked at the cargo ramp. My guess is that it's a charter of some kind, but does anyone have more info on why it's here? Thanks!

UN Assembly in NYC. Parked at BWI due to lack of ramp space at JFK.

Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

Airplanes flying Presidents and PM's to the UN are parked all over the northeast. Iran Air 747SP was(is) parked at Andrews AFB, if that isn't strange what is.

Ahh, thanks for the info, guys! My trip took me through Kennedy last night, and I was fortunate enough to catch an IL-96 in Rossiya's colors taxiing to park.

Quoting jfk777 (Reply 2):

Probably the most secure location for an aircraft in the region.
