OAI 772 & Kalitta 727 At DFW (10/16)

Wed Oct 17, 2012 2:55 am

I was spotting at DFW today as my normal after-work stress-reliever and was pleased to see two rarities pop up:

1. N918AX, Omni Air International 777-200, coming out of the cargo & maintenance area of the airport (near AA maintenance).

I was able to get the track of this flight on FlightAware:

Does anyone know the purpose of these aircraft being at DFW today? Does Omni get some maintenance done by AA?

Omni has a MX station of their own opposite the AA narrowbody hangars. The 777s are here occasionally, more than enough to not be rare. Wish I had seen the Kalitta 727 though, which I assume was just doing a cargo charter.
I didn't get a 'Harumph' outta that guy!
