Phoenix Aviation Thread Part 4

Sat Dec 15, 2012 3:27 am

Wow! Part four already!

Welcome to our fourth thread, and presumably, the last one of 2012!

We have had a nice discussion since the first thread was made in July.

Some talking points:

BA Starting daily flights last week
Now that this merger is presumably in full swing, what's going to happen?
G4 and AZA

Here is the list we have been working on since the last thread. I have updated it since you guys posted your replies. In regards to AS, I have included both the 9ER and 900 as part of its service to PHX.

AM EMB-145
AC Airbus A319, A320, E-190
AS Boeing 734, 73G, 738, 739, 739ER
AA MD-82, MD-83, Boeing 738, CRJ-200, EMB-145
BA Boeing 744
B6 Airbus A320
DL Airbus A319, A320, Boeing 738, 752, 753 (seasonal), 763 (seasonal), MD-90, CRJ-700, CRJ-900
F9 Airbus 319, E-190
HA Boeing 763ER
SY Boeing 73G, 738 (all seasonal)
UA Airbus A319, A320, Boeing 735, 739, 752, CRJ-200, CRJ-700
US Airbus A319, A320, A321, Boeing 752, CRJ-200, CRJ-900
WN Boeing 733, 735 (seasonal), 737, 738
WS Boeing 737, 738
ZK Beech 1900D

CARGO:

A8 Metroliner, EMB-120, Beech 1900, Beech C99, Piper PA-31-350 Chieftain
EM Cessna 208B
FX Boeing 722F (seasonal) Airbus A300F, A310F, MD-10F, MD-11F
GB Boeing 762F, 763F
OJ (I'm not sure which they operate here)
5X Airbus A300F, Boeing 752F, 763F, MD-11F (seasonal)

How does the list look so far?

Enjoy the weather, and Happy Holidays

Are we still seeing FedEx 722s at all? They have been pulling them from the fleet and don't know where they are still going.

There are plenty of open gates that VX could use already, I suspect the biggest reason they haven't started flying here is the amount of competition on both LAX-PHX and SFO-PHX that's in place.
Allons-y!

What's the whole attraction with VX? Last I checked that airline was in hot water...what kind of routes could they operate out of here?

I don't think we get any 727s here at PHX anymore, FX typically is all MD-10s A300s or MD-11s.

With about 9 days left until Christmas anyone know when the heavy metal will start flying into PHX again for the last minute holiday cargo rush? Last year we had 2 to 3 747s per day leading up to Dec 25th. Evergreen N482EV and National Airlines N919CA along with the daily BA flight.

Quoting PHX787 (Thread starter):

I'm assuming the list is what flies out of PHX, but I am unfortunately too lazy to look at the last thread to know for sure. Anyway. UAL uses B73G and B738 (not mentioned), but I haven't seen any -500s in a while aside from the occasional IAH run since there are fewer than a dozen left in the fleet these days. Having said that, I could be full of crap. Although I can vouch for the -800 because one took me to IAD on Saturday. They ran a few B753s a week a few months back if I recall correctly.

I haven't seen a FDX B722 in a long time so you can probably scratch that off. They're only going to have a handful over the next couple of years as they get replaced.

Also, I'm pretty sure SWA uses B735 year round. They only have 15 or 20 floating around so they aren't as prevalent as in the past, but they're still around. SWA generally doesn't seasonally do much of anything with their fleet, but that may start changing with the -800. I don't fly them so I don't really care.

Happily the theme of my post until now appears to be about dying airplanes, so I'll move on..


When I got to T2 around 8am Saturday, I found a nice surprise (considering PHX typically boasts remarkably unsurprising traffic). The fairly routine bit was that UAL had a chartered B764 (the Lions, I assume) parked just west of T2 where UA always parks, so neat-o. The noteworthy bit is that at 6A and 6B (or however the hell that PMCO charlie fox of a gate area is numbered) was the UA retro A320 parked next to the CO 75th B739. I'm guessing those two aren't parked side-by-side too often, so it did provide a brief distraction before returning to my search for coffee.

The operating pattern has been a little sketchy, but we've had a 727 here about 12 times in the last month. Haven't seen it in about a week though. Usually comes up from TUS and goes out to AFW.

It should pick up soon with the Amazon center in the west valley.

On Saturday UPS had a MD-11 and A-300, FX had MD-11 and MD-10 in the mix.

Agree, the only way I can see VX surviving is for them to be acquired by someone else. That being said, I do not see a long life for VX.

Again, they still continue to show up every year around this time.

They've been running up to 5 daily MD-11s since right after Thanksgiving, in addition to their other flights. Last Thursday they had 12 total movements and FDX had I think about 10 or 11. Very busy down there.

Apparently the part of my post saying that I'm full of crap proved correct (nothing new there). I always notice the Coyotes 727 so maybe that distracts me from the ones from FDX. Unfortunately it sounds like they may only be around for another year or two before they're all retired...sad, but they've gotta be expensive as hell to run.

It would be cool to start a heavy tracking page into PHX for the next few days so that we can all keep track of what's coming and when they are leaving. It's pretty cool to watch the 747s and even the MD11s departing from PHX to the East from Chandler. They look like they are barely moving and it seems to take a long time for them to climb out. When they depart to the West sometime they get routed right over Chandler and circle back to the North.

OK, This got me wondering what the frequencies of cargo aircraft was at PHX, so I complied a list of arrivals from 00:00 today until now using Flightaware.

Flight # ----- Type---Dept Time

UPS 9723 - B757 - 00:30
UPS 834 - B767 - 03:26
UPS 9833 - MD-11 - 03:31
FDX 1863 - DC-10 - 05:04
EIA - 850 - B742 - 05:28
UPS - 856 - B752 - 05:35
FDX - 1748 - MD-11 - 05:59
FDX - 1192 - DC-10 - 06:37
FDX - 1403 - MD-11 - 06:42
ABE - 815 - B763 - 07:12
FDX - 1411 - DC-10 - 07:41
GTI - 9731 - B744 - 08:26
UPS - 858 - MD-11 - 08:45
FDX - 1778 - DC-10 - 09:58
GTI - 2865 - B744 - 11:07
FDX - 3632 - A-306 - 19:20
UPS - 853 - MD-11 - 22:38

There seems to be a lot of DC-10's and not MD-10's on the list, but I also know Flightaware can be wrong.

Also who uses the callsign, "Company"? I have heard it in the past, but have been unable to find who uses it.

When ATC uses the word "Company" they are telling the flight crew they are fallowing another one of their company's aircraft, like a US plane fallowing another US plane.

When ATC uses the word "Company" they are telling the flight crew they are fallowing another one of their company's aircraft, like a US plane fallowing another US plane.

Thanks, I was trying to deduce this for the longest time.

Also who uses the callsign, "Company"? I have heard it in the past, but have been unable to find who uses it.

When ATC refers to "Company," it simply means that they are also speaking to another aircraft of the same airline. For example; "UPS834 follow behind company MD-11." Meaning that the said MD-11 is also UPS. Does this make sense?

5X MD-11s are relatively common here in PHX.

Depending on the time of year, sure. Between January and mid-November, there was a grand total of one that came through here in March.

Looks like a BA268 747-400 has been diverted to PHX after departure from LAX on its way to LHR. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/B...8/history/20121219/0440Z/KLAX/EGLL
Sounds like a medical emergency - 2 yr old female having seizures. Listen live on Live ATC

Ignore the self-plug again, and the excessive wind noise.....rather, enjoy it because I doubt I'll ever do anything like this in this pathetic weather again!  Wink

I just needed a break from dealing with my crazy ex girlfriend

Another one for today...

And a repeat of yesterday's B744 from Houston http://flightaware.com/live/flight/GTI9731

If I stand outside here in Chandler over the next hour or so, I see 2 FedEx DC/MD10s and that 744 upstream that will fly over!

Edit: Oh! They're coming in from the east! DC10 #1 just seen floating in over Gilbert and another to follow shortly.

Well, it looks as if there is a PA-31 that went missing in the Matazal Mountains.

Apparently the part of my post saying that I'm full of crap proved correct (nothing new there). I always notice the Coyotes 727 so maybe that distracts me from the ones from FDX. Unfortunately it sounds like they may only be around for another year or two before they're all retired...sad, but they've gotta be expensive as hell to run.

A few days back there was talk about 727s flying into PHX. A Capital Cargo ( Cappy) 727 came in last night at 12:07am from BFI. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/CCI969
