Re: Hurricane Florence & Boeing Plant in CHS?

If the forecast has Charleston getting hit hard enough by the hurricane, Boeing would most likely ferry the flyable frames to other locations throughout the country. However, if the storm does not pose a big enough threat, I do not see Boeing doing this.

N301DN registration change

Hello all,

I was spotting at ATL this weekend at saw N301DV, Delta A321. I looked up the regestration and found out that this plane was orginally regestered N301DN, the first Delta A321. Why did the regestration change? Any insight would be helpful!

Thanks in Advance

UA now flying EWR-ANC?

Hello A.net,

Over the past few weeks I have noticed that every Saturday there is a EWR-ANC flight (#1747) and a return (#1748)ANC-EWR both operated by a 757-200.

EWR- ANC 1545- 1941 All times local

ANC-EWR 2045- 753(next day) all times local

Can someone provide insight??

Thanks
