Noticed on Flightaware that an IL-76 was in MKE today. Anyone know why? Even more strange is the routing this A/C took tonight on its flight between MKE-ANC...

CYNDI GRB J101 SSM N528A YXZ J525 YSP J525 YXL J513 KAIIN J513 YVC YMM J513 YOJ NCA13 YXY J511 DB NCA20 ELLAM

Why didn't they enter Canadian airspace where ORD-ANC flights typically would, somewhere around the MN/Canada border? It just doesn't seem to make sense to back track all the way around Lake Superior in the manner they apparently did.

They loaded a piece of machinery in it with a dawes crane. Couldnt tell you what the piece was but it came in early on a lowboy.
