- Total Time
Can anyone confirm or deny this my "facts" are very sketchy. I was told that at some time in the 70's a DC-9 accidentally landed at Iosco 6D9 on the way into Oscoda OSC.
Kallitta DC-8 landed at Tawas, MI about 8 miles south. 3500' strip, flew it in and flew it out.
it was tawas, it was a DC-8, it was going the place Kalitta now owns, so I missed on the lenght.It was a BAX Global DC-8 back in 2000 going to Timco at OSC. Tawas is 4800' long and can be mistaken as OSC if you aren't paying any attention.
There are some pics out there somewhere of it. I am sure PUNISHER will be along to set the facts straight kind of like the fact that Kalitta has 1 "L".
Well, technically, it wasn't a BAX Global DC-8...
Yes, the crew is still with us.
Unless I heard wrong the PFE on that flight is not still with us.(RIP) I heard through the grape vine and am hoping maybe I heard wrong. He is or was a hell of a nice guy and if true I was sorry to hear about it.
What is the name of that restaurant across the street?
