A United 787-9 is coming into BED today, perhaps a military charter. Shoot I wish I hadn’t missed this! A widebody at BED is a rare treat! Any photos? I'm pretty impressed they were able to get a 789 off the 7000 ft runway to go to BIF (Ft. Bliss in El Paso). An Atlas 744 flew from BED to PHX as a ...Jump to post
I enjoyed your enthusiasm and recently had a similar experience. Last week I did BDL to ATL to MCO to fly on a 717 and 764 (first time). A domestic WB is always fun. I had gone about the same amount of time since my last flights, so it felt really good to get out again. Had a three hour layover in A...Jump to post
It's a United 757 in the battleship gray livery. Engine pylon is painted blue (Delta is gray, only engine cowlings are blue). The illustration is of a man reading a gray United safety card in the safety card-its a little detail in many of their safety cards. Also, the top of the wing has a long row...Jump to post
Before I got into planes, I happened to take the following pictures on a trip from somewhere in New England to Florida. This is from February 2010. https://imgur.com/a/OBfdWVF Normally we'd fly out of Boston but this is obviously not BOS. Hope the wing and engine provide some clues! There's a video ...Jump to post
At noon today (EST) I noticed nine KC135s, KC10s, C17s and C5s in the states surrounding DC and in southern New England (on ADSB). I'd imagine the tankers were supporting fighters but what about the C17s and C5s? Anything else worth noting? Looks like Trump arrived in PBI on a VC-25A. Will he now re...Jump to post
There's an Atlas 744 at Hanscom right now! Showed up on Friday, probably leaving tomorrow.Jump to post
Where do you find out about special training exercises, delivery flights, etc. for US Air Force or AFR bases? I live in the Northeast and I missed two KC-46 deliveries by five minutes at PSM/Pease, but some other spotters were there and they knew what was coming. Anything mobile friendly? I'm aware ...Jump to post
I think there are only a couple of wingletless flying in the Delta fleet. That doesn't include the NBA 752 fleet which I think had the winglets removed. The stage length of their typical flights make them uneconomical to operate. Those that don't have winglets have structural issues that prevented ...Jump to post
Do the Delta 752s without winglets belong to a distinctly different category within the 752 fleet at Delta or is it somewhat random? Are they generally older? From a different original airline? Different cabin configuration? And, are they utilized on different routes than the 752s that do have wingl...Jump to post
If a crew is operating a stretched variant (739, 753, 764, A333, etc.), how much higher of a power setting do they need to set if they want to rotate at the same distance down a runway as if they were in the shorter variant? Let's assume weather is equal, there are correspondingly more passengers an...Jump to post
157th ANG at Pease got two new ones tonight (6th). I was there all day and must have left just before they arrived. Anyone know the arrival time?

Not me, but shortly after the Dr. David Dao incident in 2017, I was on a United flight from Denver to Vancouver. This poor guy had a direct ticket from Denver to SFO, but he was on our flight for whatever reason. He was basically told to shut up and sit down (we hadn't left the gate yet). So he came...Jump to post
As a passenger, how much do you bend your plans or open your wallet to be on board a unique aircraft? Maybe you could fly home at 6 pm but you find something to do and depart at 11 pm instead to get on a domestic 777 instead of a 737. Maybe there's a direct flight that's also cheaper and faster but ...Jump to post

Folks - hope everyone is well. I wanted to check with this group how UA BOS/EWR flights are operating? My in-laws need to travel back to BOM and are Indian citizens. UA currently still flies the EWR/BOM route but the flight does not depart until 8:30 pm. Their intended plan to fly is to return back...Jump to post
Any opinions as to the likelihood that Delta and United will retain these unique planes post COVID-19? I know that the 753s and 764s are not old, so hopefully they can stick around.
I had some travel booked on 753s for this summer and I'm not sure I'll be on 753s or even 752s.
IMG-3994.JPG Someone asked about wing clearance if multiple A330s were next to each other. Here is a 763 next to an A333 and my ride to ATL between them at Boston. Try using imgur. https://imgur.com/upload Thanks, good idea. I'm a millennial and can't figure this stuff out! https://imgur.com/a/CZjy...Jump to post
I'm a Canadian aviation fan who's never flown on MD metal, so what better to do on my midterm break next month than pop down and fly on a bunch of MD88s/MD90s while that's still possible. Fortunately I am able to fly standby on DL. I don't know much about DL's network so I was hoping people could s...Jump to post
Can anyone comment on the likelihood that the direct summer Delta 767 service between BOS and SLC will resume? I haven't seen it in the schedule. I think SLC-HNL would be a better candidate for the 767 this summer. I don’t know why they downgraded it to a 757 for last summer over SLC-BOS. The 767-3...Jump to post
