Delta DC3 In New Orleans

Tue May 11, 2004 5:29 am

Does anyone know the plans and/or the intinerary for the Delta DC3 at MSY on Tues 5/11 and Wed 5/12? The Delta Museum site shows it scheduled for that date.

Is this a public event or just DAL folks?

DL's DC-3 was here a year or so ago, and that time it was more for airport employees only. It was parked at one of DL's gates (D-6, if I recall) and was there just part of one day. I remember that when it left here, it flew to DL's original hometown of Monroe, LA (MLU).

It should be visible from the parking garage and the upper ramp, as well as from DL's gates.

Just talked a friend at DL, it's scheduled for late afternoon tomorrow, but it depends on the weather (we've got t-storms going currently). They'll make a decision in the AM.

Thanks Tom.


Please update here if you can. Maybe the weather will hold out. Or maybe I'll get lucky and be able to see it fly over the Gulf Coast. I'll keep an eye out in FlightExplorer tomorrow.

Jack,
I'll recheck with DL in the morning and see what the scoop is.

Despite the nasty weather in the New Orleans area today, the DC-3 is scheduled to arrive MSY around 2:00 this afternoon (about 40 minutes from now). Of course, this is subject to change.....and probably will.

Blew in, and blew right out again.....kind of like today's t-storms. He's overnighting at N.O.-Lakefront Airport.

Thanks Tom for the update. Of course all this happened during the power outage on the Gulf Coast due to the heavy T-storms. Couldn't track it or get the info in time.

Oh well. another day.

Missed it again today. Better luck to those down the road.

Not too often you see this on the screen.

That's Delta Flight 3 NEW-HOU.
