The Yellow Tailed DHL 747-8F that went over Redding is flying over WA

I'm not sure where the original thread went, but the exact same plane (N853GT) on the exact same flight from NRT-LAX is going right over Washington State 30 miles north of Seattle - apparently "diverting" to CRG again- except that it was never going to LAX.

The poster had a concern about why this plane diverted... well, it was never ever on track to go to LAX today. flightradar24 says "NRT-LAX", but it was never on course for LAX... so the diversion last week apparently wasn't that strange.... because it wasn't a diversion, but perhaps a flightradar24 error (probably because the flight number used to be tied to a flight that went NRT-LAX?).

Remember that when it flew over Redding there were extremely strong winds up here in Washington... up here where it would normally be flying to CRG on a great circle route.
Like it is today.

Did you mean "CVG"?

"CRG" (IATA) is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacksonville_Executive_at_Craig_Airport

"CVG" (IATA) is this: http://www.cvgairport.com/

(I should add, for non-pilots...."IATA" is the "International Air Transport Association who are responsible for what we call the "3-digit" airport codes (the ones you see on your ticket, and on your checked baggage).

The ICAO, on the other hand, code ALL airports on this planet with a 4-digit moniker.

Sorry if this fosters any confusion. Those of us IN the airline industry tend to "bounce" back-and-forth.

As a "customer"? The obvious 'behind-the-scenes' isn't all that "OBVIOUS"!! (lol)

I expect the "fact" that it never goes to its purported destination will become proof of chemtrails once discovered by certain individuals.

:cool:

Yeah that is what I thought the observer in Redding was thinking...

Except that it wasn't even leaving persistent contrails, was it? (Ooops- I mean "chemtrails").
