Does Jeff L have experience flying as well? I’ve never heard you mention it before.

I detoured substantially on the way home to avoid that 1 mile of tar and chip again.
@ Jetlink « Wed 12:16:14 am »
Includes 2 miles of gravel and 1 mile of fresh chip-seal-coat.

Bikey complete: Wanted to go out for at least 2 hours since I couldn’t get my 100 in today.
@ Jetlink « Wed 12:12:41 am »
Yes. PC-12 is a great aircraft but fairly advanced for a trainer. Could be done though. Imagine it would be pricey. I learned and got my private ticket in a Cessna 150 to start. Then flew a PA 28 and a CE 172.

Good strategy. Glad you fixed it.

Unfortunately I haven’t gone up yet, it failed it’s annual because the guy that owns it has been more focused on trying to get a new paint job for the thing and not working it

@ Jetlink « Tue 8:18:57 pm »
could be anything. LOL
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:18:48 pm »
but 121 supplemental is a funny business.
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:18:31 pm »
I bet someone else is operating it or wet leasing it. It is just a co incidence that it is at PTK
@ David Collins « Tue 8:17:56 pm »
I bet it came back for recertification
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:17:55 pm »
I believe you. I was just surprised that IFL had it. Because I didn’t think they operated any 737’s anymore
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:17:25 pm »
They re registered it after IFL parked it last August.
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:17:10 pm »
registered as an Oklahoma City corporation. They specialize in fractional ownership of aircraft.
@ David Collins « Tue 8:16:57 pm »
Well it is here, I saw it

I couldn’t find anything on it when it flew here because it has a Sierra Transponder and is almost impossible to find… and maybe KPTK is IFL’s HQ and maybe they’re doing work on it?
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:10:33 pm »
I’ll see if I can find a flight plan for it in the system
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:10:15 pm »
OK. I buy that. That is the only 737 on their operating certificate. But it is listed as stored in Renton WA.

ok so I did some research, it is not a NG, it’s a 737-446F, if you want to see what it looks like it’s tail # is N129AC, don’t let the windows fool you, IFL is freight only

@ Jetlink « Tue 8:04:23 pm »
I don’t doubt what you saw. Just doesn’t jive with other info sources.
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:04:02 pm »
But anyway
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:03:50 pm »
IFL doesn’t operate any 737’s They have some -400s which are classics not NG but they are stored/scrapped.
@ Jetlink « Tue 8:03:14 pm »
HMMM
@ David Collins « Tue 7:54:27 pm »
I know the IFL has CRJ200F’s which I thought never existed

@ David Collins « Tue 7:46:25 pm »
@Jetlink, ok, it was being operated by the IFL Group out of KPTK (Oakland County INTL), it must have been a 737-700NG since it was kinda small for a 737 and IIRC had wingtips, I honestly couldn’t tell you how it was loaded since I only saw it landing. But I know for a fact it is cargo because IFL (the owner) is a cargo only airline
@ Jetlink « Tue 7:42:14 pm »
Did it have a cargo/Pallet door or was all being loaded loose or in small cans?
@ Jetlink « Tue 7:42:12 pm »
737's Don't make the best freighters IMHO
@ Jetlink « Tue 7:42:09 pm »
Who was operating? Sun Country? Mesa?
@ David Collins « Tue 7:35:29 pm »
@Jetlink, I just saw a 737NG Freighter land at KPTK
@ Jetlink « Tue 5:07:22 pm »
Havent seen those passing through before.
@ Jetlink « Tue 5:07:05 pm »
And a couple loaded bulkhead flats with some interesting tarped over lading on them

Random empty auto rack on it too

DaveO, when I post from my phone the colored font automatically appears. Anyone know how I can change it back to auto white font?
@ Jetlink « Tue 12:47:24 pm »
So I opted not to.

But it was in the tone of voice which actually means don’t do it or you will be emotionally tormented by me for an undetermined amount of time thus making your life miserable.
