Caribbean 767 To ILN

Mon Oct 21, 2013 2:38 am

Found something interesting on flightaware tonight.

9Y-LHR (BW 763) is operating POS-MIA-ILN (Wilmington, Ohio) tonight. On facebook, Miami Spotter got a really nice picture of it but says it's going to IND. Anybody know which it is actuay going to and why?

Thanks for any help!

I don't know why, but the flight is BW7400 KMIA-KILN. According to flightaware.com, this route was also flown by a BW B763 on Oct. 17.

Could it have something to do with ABX and their 767's that use to frequent ILN? Not sure if ABX still has any operations here or not.

There is a MRO there http://www.airbornemx.com/ and being that it's founded by ABX or what's left of it they would definatly be a good MRO if you needed work on your 767's

BW is sending their B763s to IND for C-checks.
It is what we think we know already that prevents us from learning.......

Interesting to note it flew POS-MIA at FL260. Surely it could've gone POS-ILN if it flew at normal FL's.
You are said to be a good pilot when your take-off's equal your landings.
