Thank you, yeah it is. However, I've heard that in other storage areas (such as MCI), the amount of Delta aircraft there has gone way down so I think overall it's a positive. I also think that the aircraft that were sent to VCV (instead of a hub location, for example United with IAD/IAH) signified that these aircraft were anticipated to be stored for a longer duration of time. Just my 2 cents there though.

In other news: It looks like a UPS 747 flight on the HNL-SBD leg may become common (although it could just be 2 and that's it, simply too early to tell). As a UPS 747-8F filed HNL-SBD 8:21PM - 4:34AM as 5X9687, the same flight number used last night by 744F N578UP. I believe this is the first ever visit of a UPS 747-8F to SBD, but correct me if I am wrong. Any additional info about these flights: what they are carrying, why they are happening, if they are a new service, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

I wonder if those UPS flights are really going to their hub in Ontario a short distance away.

Looking at the flight history of 5X9867. It is regularly scheduled flight 3 days a week that rotates between SBD and ONT. UPS has a significant presence at SBD.

The FR24 playback for last night would suggest otherwise.

If this becomes regular service these posts will stop, however it seems that for now there is no concrete evidence to support that.

Wow, that's news to me. Thanks for the tip :)
Any further idea of when that will happen (next few weeks, months, etc) or is that the only available info?

This is a standard flight, when I was still working at ONT Tower I had this flight arrive every week around the same time that FDX802 would come in from HNL. However, both flights were originally MD-11's and then FDX switched to a B77L. Looks like UPS decided to upgauge but again UPS9867 is not a special flight, it seems they just decided to send it to SBD. It could be a ramp space issue at ONT. This past December, before I left, we had 3 UPS B748 arrivals but had to hold 2 of them out of the ramp until space opened up.

Oh, ok. Makes sense that they would utilize SBD if ramp space is getting tight at ONT. Wow that's a crazy story :shock:

According to this Facebook post by SBD Airport (first link), it looks like UPS will now serve SBD 3x weekly with the 747-8F (yay!). 2nd link has a cool video with the 748F landing at 4AM.

VCVspotter: are you able to see this SpiceJet from a ground location? https://flic.kr/p/2iCyVcP

It didn't have a reg allocated initially but prior to leaving RNT for VCV it got one and the last 2 letters are on the nosewheel doors, but not yet painted on the main fuselage. Wondering if you can read them off from a ground location?

Firstly, this shot is not 'current,' the date displayed on the image (08-03-20) is March 8, 2020 (if it was August there would be MANY more 737MAXs), and so I am not sure if this aircraft was moved from this location or not, but one thing is for sure: a SpiceJet 737MAX is not in that location anymore. There is one a near that area, but not parked exactly as pictured. As for whether I can get it from a ground location, that entire 'group' of 737MAXs is basically surrounded by either a double fence (making photos meaningless even if you shot through the first fence), or surrounded by large buildings; meaning I wouldn't be able to get a shot even if it was parked exactly there (sorry for the long road to the final answer lol, wanted to give some background info). As for the possibility of being able to shoot that SpiceJet 737MAX that I said was 'near' this location, that also would not be possible due to the how closely they parked the MAXs together (it's in the middle of a group, so some other 737MAX will cover it up), along with the 2 previously mentioned reasons.

Northrop Grumman L1011 N140SC flew MHV-EDW yesterday (August 6) as FFL374....possibly a new role? But what's really strange is the ForeFlight callsign, ForeFlight is a Boeing Company software app...(see 2nd link). Furthermore, this is her 2nd visit to EDW in 1 month, and I've heard that she's parked where they park live ordnance jets...really curious as to what's going on :confused:

So it's not parked on the transient ramp or the ramp just west of the tower where K35R's park?

Oh ok, I worked there for 3 and a half years so I'm pretty familiar with it. I'd have to assume they are in either of those 2 spots, there are usually no aircraft with live ordinance parked there and the T38's are parked in between those two areas. Now if it is parked on the south ramp, over by the large hangar, that could be the case but usually it's just B52, B2 and B1's over there. That's also where YAL-1A used to be at.

Thanks for covering me, had a crazy morning getting out there for it lol. There were a handful of other spotters were out there, but not as many as the video I saw of the arrival yesterday. Looked like it had a full cargo load based off of zooming into the portholes on my pics...wonder what the cargo was....

Here's what she looked like on departure, not bad for a 49 year old!

Yup, pretty sure this is the end of the line for N309DE.....lol I'm pretty sure that the taxi out experience would be surreal...passing all of those retired jets. Though if I had a choice, I would definitely chose that Cavok AN-12B as my ride out of SBD. :lol:

Here's a quick overview of SBD today (August 9, 2020):
1. Global SuperTanker 944 (747-400F N744ST) is still parked near the fire fighting ramp, and has both upper deck doors open (probably for cooling the cabin), as well as stairs attached, ready to go if there's a flare up with the Apple Fire (although based on the amount of firetrucks I passed (at least 10) on the way home (which is west of SBD), I think that it won't be long before 944 leaves.
2. GECAS 777-300ER N557CC is in a hangar somewhere (likely AeroPro) getting worked on, you can't see it.
3. Ex Qantas 747-400ER VH-OEF (former OneWorld Livery) is now outside the hangar, without tiles or engines. It seems that the constant rumors that were swirling around this jet (GE testbed, freighter conversion, Middle Eastern Prince bought it, etc) can now finally be put to rest almost 6 months after her final flight there.
4. Besides that, not much to report. Much of the same jets I saw stored there today were still there back in February this year when I last visited. It doesn't look like there's too much activity going on, although I saw a row of Delta 757s that are probably going to fly out in a week or two from now.

Northrop Grumman L1011 N140SC flew MHV-EDW yesterday (August 6) as FFL374....possibly a new role? But what's really strange is the ForeFlight callsign, ForeFlight is a Boeing Company software app...(see 2nd link). Furthermore, this is her 2nd visit to EDW in 1 month, and I've heard that she's parked where they park live ordnance jets...really curious as to what's going on :confused:

https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N140SC
https://foreflight.com



So it's not parked on the transient ramp or the ramp just west of the tower where K35R's park?


I’m not really familiar with the layout of EDW/where jets park, but that’s what I was told.


Looks like she's parked on the ramp near the threshold of runway 04R according to the transponder on FR24.

Omni Air 767-200ER N207AX flying AFW-VCV as OY6645. Based off the flight number and given that another 762 flew to VCV earlier this summer, I'm guessing that this is repaint or paint touch-up.

Sierra Pacific 737-500 N708S filed LSF-VCV 2:45PM - 3:51PM and VCV-TUS 4:45PM - 5:45PM as SPA708. This is likely a troop charter.

UPS 747-400F N583UP filed SDF-SBD 3:53PM - 4:54PM as 5X2624. Looks like the 747 service won't be just a 4AM flight in and a 7AM flight out (big yay!)...hopefully this service sticks around, would love to see a 744 with some of the more unique features of SBD (the close proximity to the runway as well as the mountain backdrop make for some amazing photos if things work out just right).

Yes, it was mentioned a few posts up-thread. Can’t make it today, hoping it leaves at a reasonable time tomorrow. If anybody knows, please comment or PM me.


Filed to depart at 12:10PM local according to flightaware.


Thanks for covering me, had a crazy morning getting out there for it lol. There were a handful of other spotters were out there, but not as many as the video I saw of the arrival yesterday. Looked like it had a full cargo load based off of zooming into the portholes on my pics...wonder what the cargo was....

Here's what she looked like on departure, not bad for a 49 year old!

If you'd like to see it on arrival, it seems to be headed back in today:

Looks like they're running some cargo on the SBD-MGA leg. I would love to see it, but virtual my virtual senior year starts today and I already got arrival so I can't make it. I don't know if there'll be many spotters out there, as almost everybody got either the arrival or the departure.....

Yup. In order to not clutter the thread too much I no longer post Delta or Southwest movements until they are in the air as they can be unreliable.

Here's the link for N306DQ, which was delayed by 8 hours:
https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/n306dq

The registrations for the two 767-300ERs are N156DL and N154DL. N156DL filed LAX-SBD 7AM - 7:45AM as DL9965, and N154DL filed LAX-SBD 10AM - 10:45AM as DL9966.
