B747SP @ IWA Now

Tue Jun 21, 2005 2:03 am

Just came back from IWA doing some touch and go's and noticed what looked like a 747SP parked there. Didn't see what was on it unfortunately. Refueller told us the captain was heading to asia for tsunami relief out of LAX and got cancelled and was so angry he flew the plane to IWA where he lives and sent the rest of the crew to the golf course...  Cool Don't know if the story is true, but it's nice anyhow. Take your advantage!

Tsunami relief flight? Sounds like Global Peace Ambassadors to me. Did the SP carry a double blue cheatline? At least that you should remember.
