Noticing an A330 on a route from Alexandria LA to HNL. A charter I presume? North of San Angelo TX at the moment

Likely troop movements from Fort Polk or Camp Beauregard. Pretty cool. Once I was driving along I-49 in the pine covered hills of Central Louisiana and a 747 dropped right in front my view on approach to AEX. I detoured to the airport to check it out... super cool for such a 'hell hole'. Nice airport though.
