AA 757 Experimental

Mon Jan 01, 2007 2:44 pm

Im moveing this off the mainboard to here,,, can anyone answer what this is...

was looking at some of the a/c photos into Bna and found this.... can some one shed any light what this means....

N173AN (cn 32399/1005) Not a normal site at BNA - this rather dirty 752 replaced an MD-83 on a regularly scheduled DFW-BNA-DFW flight. According to the FAA, this aircraft was built in 2002 and holds an airworthiness certificate type of 'experimental' and is approved for 'research and development' operations. Interesting
i can see for 80 miles

To be honest, I think it's just a case of the FAA website being outdated. It couldn't be used to haul passengers/freight in an experimental category. If you look at the registry website http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinqu...t=173AN&cmndfind.x=20&cmndfind.y=8
You'll see it had a temp certificate that was valid from 3/2002-4/2002.
