    Everything United Airlines flys. I’ve been wrenching on commercial airliners for over 40 years and have seen a lot. But nothing as strange as these current market conditions.

    Silver C4 on Old Orchard rd going East. Couldn’t get a pick since I’m overseeing my daughter’s driving.

    Just saw a very large jet heading inbound ORD all white, no markings or tail number.

    Several operators have put white 747F freighters into service including Atlas Air and Kalitta Air but they all have tail numbers, trust me. Dedicated cargo traffic into ORD is at an all time high(ever).

    Delta just flew one of their passenger 777-200's into ORD just for cargo with no passengers on a cargo only charter. Very strange times. All the other cargo companies are flying nonstop with no extra room even with the many added world cargo route flights into ORD.

    Yea I’m sure all have tail numbers but I did not see any in this one. I wish I knew what type of plane. It did have a slight bump over the nose.

    It does! Is that your newly acquired 458? Glad you're able to stretch her legs, how are you enjoying?!

    Good eye. I was trying to get the car some sunlight as it just came back from Getting PPF done.

    Great eyes guys. I recently picked up the 458 from the PPF installer. Was trying to get some sun in to help it cure...

    It's a Western Global MD11. It fits 38 pallet positions, mostly PMC'S. There is one due in tomorrow at 12:40.
    I send the trucks that provide it's export loads and the trucks that receive import it's loads. There are at least two of them coming and going twice a week. DB Schenker has one. Not sure who has the other one.

    Looks like someone needed a little Ferrari social distancing.
