Thanks for the info. I saw that a/c at the gate Sunday around 12:30pm when I came in from ATL. Thought maybe it was a charter at the international gate. Quite an unusual site.

On Saturday (the 20th) DL had a 757 come into LIT on an emergency landing due to the windshield broke at cruising altitude. It was going from ATL-ONT. I am not sure what the flight number was or reg. was (I did not have my cammera with me).

Sure have been several 757 incidents lately.
