Korean Air Charter to Beirut

Tue Apr 04, 2017 7:05 pm

Can someone tell me why a KE 777 was spotted at BEY today (Apr 4)?

I see two flights, KE9973 and KE9974.

Interesting find...

Likely a charter flight considering the flight number. DWC had charter flights in the 99XX flight numbers not to long.

I think it has been there before. I recall seeing on Instagram somewhere a KE aircraft parked in BEY and bringing some peacekeepers or military to BEY.

It was not the first time, they flew these in the past as well, one was spotted in August 2016, there must have been more that went un-noticed.
