I Saw Pan Am 727 From ORD

Sat Feb 17, 2001 10:47 am

Hi to all-

Is anyone who saw some planes at Chicago O'Hare Thursday early morning just before 730AM? I saw the Pan Am 727-200 with winglets climbing out of O'Hare whilst I was driving to work at 7:30AM. Why did Pan Am 727 in ORD for? They do not have service schedule in Chicago. Only Gary, IN service. I think maybe it is a charter or maintenance at AA or UA for check up 727 or oil change engines so Pan Am paid to AA or UA. Is Anyone know about it?

TWA902 fly is correct. Bear in mind that PAN AM has AA or UAL to help with maintinance checks on their 7 727-200s and also PAN AM does have alot of charter operations in and out of ORD as every now and then my friends see a PA 727 or two on the tarmac at ORD.

I've seen a Pan Am 727 doing charters out of DTW. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Isn't Pan Am run by a maintenance company? I believe that all maintenance is done in Portsmouth, NH. It was probably a charter.
