Mon Apr 24, 2017 3:21 am

Landed on UA 2 from SIN this morning and saw a The Antonov An-124 parked near the large hangers to the right of 28R

Arrived from KEF via Edmonton on Apr 22 and left today for Charlotte and then onto Kingston

I flew out from SFO on Sunday April 30 and saw TWO Antonov AN-124s! One parked in front of the big hanger, and one in a line just North of the big hanger.

They've been around for the past couple weeks. I stopped by SFO on Sunday April 23 for some plane spotting and watched one depart Runway 1R.

I saw one of the two depart last Friday (April 28).

If both were there again on the 30th, that means the one that left came back again.
The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word.
There is no 787-800, nor 787-900 or 747-800. It's 787-8, 787-9, and 747-8.
A321neoLR is also unnecessary. It's simply A321LR.
Airplanes don't have isles, they have aisles.

They are picking up Teslas, I am told. Tuesday's departure was bound (initially, at least) for a place called Kinston, NC.

It was an interesting week for Cargo aircraft. Besides the An-124, there was a visit by a Iceland Air Cargo and Emirates Cargo.
