Polet IL96 Inbound To IAH 15FEB13

Fri Feb 15, 2013 7:53 am

Just a heads up that Flightaware is showing a Polet IL96 inbound to KIAH ETA 15Feb/0850Z

http://flightaware.com/live/flight/POT9905

Is this the first Polet IL96 to the USA?

Regards
Jetset

No idea, but do you have any idea why it's there? Seems a pretty odd flight, to say the least...
Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar

Almost certainly oil/gas industry related freight flight.

Maybe getting some supplies in preparation for the meteor that hit Russia today?

Very cool, a rather unusual IAH visitor, indeed I am curious as to why she was there.
