DL A350 Lansing-Riverside?

Sun Jun 27, 2021 9:40 pm

Noticed this flight (heard it overhead first while sitting outside) today. No major college sports are being played this time of year, anyone know what this flight is for?

It’s military. The A350 came in from Alexandria this morning, an A321 came into LAN from the same location

Judging by the destination, military charter.

Flightradar24 marks RIV as Riverside, but it's March Field - the oldest military airfield in California, opened in 1918. Riverside's civilian airport is significantly smaller, and uses a different code - RAL. Delta or United flights into RIV are Department of Defense charters. However, RIV is no longer military-only, as there's an Amazon cargo terminal as well as a (relatively) new civilian FBO at the southeast corner of the airport.

If you ever see airline jets flying into Riverside, it’s military. Every time.

Amazon's operation has actually grown a little bit recently with the addition of Southern Air 737-800 freighters three times daily. The last two Christmas seasons have also seen some limited UPS flying - both their own metal (a 757) and a hired 727 from IFL.

Is anybody recalling that the first Covid vaccines shipped from Pfizer Portage flew out of LAN and not AZO or GRR?

I'd guess a Michigan ARNG unit is going to the NTC.
