UA Flight to LCK

Fri Sep 15, 2017 8:11 pm

Anyone know what this could have been? There was an ERJ145 on the same route.

Plane came in from SWF. Army is playing Ohio State tomorrow. Could have been a charter from West Point.

Remember,college football season, so lots of odd ball charters. Just check the local college and see who they are playing, usually answers the question.

The choice of LCK is a tad interesting

Lincoln is where the University of Nebraska is. It's also college soccer and possibly volleyball season. A university would charter a mainline-sized aircraft for the football team, which is a lot more people than one would think.

You're thinking of LNK. LCK is Rickenbacker in Columbus, OH.

LCK, not LNK. As mentioned above it is most likely a plane returning in UA's system after chartering the Army football team to Columbus.
As we celebrate mediocrity, all the boys upstairs want to see, how much you'll pay for what you used to get for free.
