Re: Upstate New York Aviation Thread - 2020

Flew out of ROC yesterday (February 7th), and as we were taxing to runway 4, I noticed an allegiant airbus on the run-up area near the threshold of 4. It had engine covers on and based on the snow accumulation on it, had been there for a while. Anyone know the story with this bird?
