Today at Victorville

Aero Pacific Flightlines Seattle staffer Joe G. Walker has been in town the past couple days for a short visit, so this morning (Wednesday March 16) we took a drive up to Victorville (VCV/KVCV) to see what might be out and below are some of the results........enjoy!

Omega Tanker DC-10-40 (46974/274) N974VV which was originally delivered to Japan Airlines as JA8538 on April 4, 1979 basks in the morning sun in the Mojave Desert.

Fresh out of the paint shop UA/CO 777-222/ER (26934/96) N792UA.

Boeing 747-446 (26344/929) N344NA, tbr N459MC, was delivered to Japan Airlines as JA8902 on August 19, 1992.

"Ladies and Gentlemen this is your captain speaking, there will be a slight delay in our scheduled departure as we are experiencing some technical diffulculties, thank you for your patience."

I think it is going to be a long wait as United Airlines 737-322 (24251/1646) N347UA seems to be missing just a few important parts. The aircraft was delivered to United Airlines on December 12, 1988.
