It’s 84 miles in a straight line but the flight from MHT-PVD went almost twice that - 159 miles, according to FlightAware. I guess avoiding traffic into Boston forces these flights to take roundabout routes ?Jump to post
Looks like there was also a company called us helicopter that flew from Newark airport to Manhattan in the late 2000’s
This CV-580 Testbed just retired last year after 67 years in service

Just looking at FlightAware and seeing very few flights in that part of the South Pacific.
Off topic but, there’s a flight today from Austin to Auckland- I wonder why ?

Here’s a Frontier schedule from 1977 with quite a few flights to Farmington. Some connections included 6 stops !
According to flightaware, several planes did divert to PAE - here’s one:

Is this real ?
Looks like RIAC did not include Delta in their PVD market share pie chart ?Jump to post
I'm surprised the only connections they're showing through Denver are to SLC, PDX, and LAS. Are there really that many people going to those cities every day to fill a plane ? Maybe they'll add some other connection possibilities later ? Frontier as of late has been limiting connecting flights out ...Jump to post
One thing to note about the noise - the new Boeing widebodies that routinely fly out of Paine are very quiet - especially with their light loads. I'm guessing that the Alaska 737's and (possibly) Allegiant MD-80's that will be coming will be a bit noisier. Although the Dreamlifters and AN-124's that...Jump to post
It's a long time ago (1970's), but Piedmont used to fly to both Smith- Reynolds airport in Winston Salem and Greensboro airport. They're only about 20 miles away from each other. Even today, the metro area population is about 750k (must have been a lot less back then) http://www.departedflights.com/...Jump to post
PVD-BDL (66 miles) was a busy route in the 70's and 80's. This shows 10 flights - all jets.

Looks like 737's were still flying the route until at least 1982: <a href="http://www.departedflights.com/RNO81p1.html" target="_blank">http://www.departedflights.com/RNO81p1.html</a> <a href="http://www.departedflights.com/SLC81p1.html" target="_blank">http://www.departedflights.com/SLC81p1.html</a>Jump to post
Here are a couple other flights that diverted: <a href="http://flightaware.com/live/flight/SKW4677/history/20160313/2014Z/CYYC/KPDX" target="_blank">http://flightaware.com/live/flight/S...7/history/20160313/2014Z/CYYC/KPDX</a> <a href="http://flightaware.com/live/flight/SKW4476/history/20160313/1819...Jump to post
Other flights around the same time were holding for awhile, waiting for the wind to die down a bit : <a href="http://flightaware.com/live/flight/QXE2028/history/20160313/1952Z/KLWS/KSEA" target="_blank">http://flightaware.com/live/flight/Q...8/history/20160313/1952Z/KLWS/KSEA</a> <a href="http://fli...Jump to post
Well, google says 3 acres = 130680 square feet. 130680/3200 = 40'. So, the only way it could work is if the lot was 40' x 3200', which is highly unlikely - it would also leave little room for a house, or a vineyard <img src="http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/graphics/smilies/smile.g...Jump to post
Westbound flights were taking similar routes - so maybe they were just avoiding bumpy air, and not necessarily headwinds ? <a href="http://flightaware.com/live/flight/JBU687/history/20130710/2321Z/KBOS/KLAX" target="_blank">http://flightaware.com/live/flight/J...7/history/20130710/2321Z/KBOS/KLAX</a>Jump to post

I was wondering which direction they land because, if I remember right, there's a big red and white barrier at the south end of the runway. If they were landing to the north and landed short of the runway, they would have gone right through it. <a href="http://www.airliners.net/open.file/117179/M/" ...Jump to post
Yes, that was at Renton. I think it was the first time a 747 landed there.
I'm sure they did a lot of research before the flight, but I wonder why they flew to Renton in the first place? What could they have been doing there that they couldn't do in Everett or Seattle, just a few miles away?
