DL 757 Mechanical In SAT?

Wed Oct 17, 2012 4:38 pm

I stumbled across this on Flightaware.com and am curious. Does DL have maintenance in SAT, I noticed previous post asking about maintenance in SAT? I was looking at flight history and saw that it has been done before, at other locations, and various a/c. See link below.


Conditions are perfect in CRP today, to catch a contrail, and watch it make that turn back to SAT.

ABQ ops, Cactus 202 requesting you order 5 Green Chile Chicken stew for us to p/u on arrival. ;)

ST Aerospace in San Antonio does heavy maintenance for several carriers including UPS and Delta. As a matter of fact, if you look at the Google Earth satellite image of the SAT airport and the ST Aerospace facilities there is a Delta 757-200 sitting outside the hangar and if you look at the street view of the facility there is a Northwest 757-200 outside the hangar.

Looks like a maintenance shakedown flight of some kind...
