Spotter alert: Any of you who can get out to FLL this afternoon, the heavy metal band Iron Maiden will be flying in their "Ed Force One", a 747-400. It is painted up for their Book of Souls tour. Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson, who is a certified First Officer, is supposed to be flying it in. Not very often that a 744 calls on FLL, especially one attached to the world's greatest heavy metal band (IMO)  

Alas, I won't be able to see it land, as I will be stuck at work in west Miami-Dade County     
Ironically, if it was coming into MIA, I could probably see it from the parking lot of my job, as it would probably use Runway 9 at MIA.

Oh yeah, it's due in around 3:41 PM EST. Registration is TF-AAK if you wish ti track it.

I wonder how long it's staying, maybe I'll get to see it departing from FLL if it is tomorrow or Sunday.

I have an office in downtown now, with great views of Port of Miami. So high up the VFR traffic going below the Class Bravo is lower than my office. Anyway, Watson Island Seaplane Base is pretty busy. I see at least 5-7 landings and takeoffs a day, mostly Caravans but also some smaller 182 and 206 airplanes on floats also. Pretty cool. Their approaches into government cut are great.

I really think there is an opportunity for a more substantive operation at Watson Island when they build a larger terminal facility.

Lower E looks really nice once they finished the remodeling, it looks like if it was D. And I know the satellite is going to look really nice too. What a difference a paint job, new floors and new ceiling roof does. Anyways, the plan is to demolish G within the next 10 years, so I don't see them remodeling it.

Well, except there is. With American and Interjet flying Miami-Cancun multiple times a day, American flying Miami-Monterrey daily, American flying Miami-Cozumel daily and AeroMexico with multiple flights a week to Merida. Plus Volaris to Guadalajara from Fort Lauderdale.

But if we ignore all the other service from Miami to five airports in Mexico, then, yes, you are right.

MIA Bursting At Seams, Will Need To Begin Busing Passengers Soon

Quote:
Officials at MIA say that they have run out of gate capacity and are “on the brink” of busing passengers to terminals from hardstands.

Miami-Dade Aviation Department’s Ken Pyatt told a Dade committee last week that during peak times, the airport has no remaining spare gates. The airport is coming very close to implementing a busing solution, he said, with airlines such as Qatar Airways now looking to expand further.
