RE: ATA 757 @ MDT?

It's too bad they are building the Starbucks inside of security. I'll have to wait till October to experience it!!

RE: AA Eagle DFW-MDT

The Tri-Motor was a great ride...especially in the right seat. I just wish it had been longer.

The majority of the B gates are unused during the day. The busiest time of the day for MDT is the morning rush...6am - 9am. Most aircraft are gone by 7am.

RE: AA Eagle DFW-MDT

I took a ride on the EAA Ford Tri-Motor when it was at CXY a couple of weeks ago. I rode in the right seat seat which cost $100 for the 20 minute right...and it was worth every penny!!

If they come back next year...I'll do it again.

RE: ATA 757 @ MDT?

West service is one of the areas the airport is working on. I believe daily service to <acronym title="Orlando - International (McCoy) (MCO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO</acronym> is #1 on the priority list. The Saturday only run by US is nice but they want something everyday. The addition of the Eagl...

I'll check on the dates for the airshow at LNS on Tuesday. I want to say it is the last weekend of August. From what I hear it is usually pretty good down there...even though it is a small airport.

Our other J models have communication equipment in the back end and several extra antennas on the wings and tail. If you go Google and search on 'Commando Solo' you should see the difference in the airplanes.

There is still no firm word on what will happen with the old passenger terminal. All but two of the jetways have been removed. They left two to build a US Customs facility and those jetways are on the southeast side closest to the new terminal. The new facility is fantastic...but it is depressing fl...

RE: ATA 757 @ MDT?

Parking near the cargo facility or building 208 will probably give you the best place to spot. You'll get a good view of the cargo ramp, part of the B and all of the C concourse of the terminal and the Air National Guard ramp. The C-5's have been coming to MDT a lot more...but then we (ANG side) get...
