Saw this when I flew into Nantucket this morning... Anyone vacationing here? Can't be anyone recruiting.. I love overnighting here. Had to ask very rarely do I see Michigan planes.
No idea, but I heard that there was a man from Nantucket.
...and he went up a hill with a bucket.
Um, sounds much tamer than the version I heard… /s
Maybe state leasing one of ours for recruiting?
for the Friday night pre-game team meals.
This whole experience you had seems above my paygrade
That was just an excellent post. Well done.
This has to mean that Bill Belichick is going to be the next coach, right?
/posts from 2007 and 2011
My friend used to fly a private jet for a local guy out of Willow Run in a plane that looked like that. The owner had a place in Nantucket where my friend would occasionally need to stay (in a guest house) while the owner vacationed. The same friend is the guy that flew me over the Big House so I could get the pic in my avatar. My guess is this plane belongs to my friend's former employer and doesn't have anythign to do with the school.
i think i know who your talking about now thanks
I wish I had thought of painting the block M on my jet. I'll wait for the guy who comes around to paint address numbers on the curb for 5 bucks and see if he can do it for me.
Agreed. I think I'll have someone paint that M on one of my jets, and maybe a few of my yachts.
I've seen this plane in Monterey, CA a number of times. I wonder who it is every time. Seems to be registered out of Ann Arbor: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N868EM
The same friend mentioned in my post above, also flew the guy to Monterey for business. he even moved there for a month or two. it's got to be the same guy.
This is the creepiest board post ever.
Interesting, M plane in Nantucket ---> use of banned-M, probably not an official U of M plane ---> local guy has a similar plane, flys out of Willow Run ---> does business in California ---> flight tracker
I work at ACK in Airport administration, and live here year round. Let me know if you need any advice for handling the Island over the 4th. And if you flew in on that Global, I'd love a tour! Noah 508-901-1175.
As for the rest of the board, I saw this Citation land, but didn't get a chance to talk with the pilot or passenger(s). A lot of these corporate jets are also fractional ownership, so it could just be some random guy.
What was funny is that just two days, parked next to it on the ramp was a Falcon trijet with a Cleveland Browns logo.
Convince the FAA to get a CATIII ILS please thanks that airport needs it.
What's the point of exclusivity if we make it too easy for people to get here?
FWIW, I'm installing a PAPI on 06 this fall.
Gotta have special equipment to use CAT III so it would make it more exclusive. That will be nice to use. Someone said you guys were going to make the taxi ways wider?
We are moving and widening Delta for better access to the South GA ramp in the fall, and we are looking at plans for building a parallel taxiway to 15/33 with high speed exits (pipe dream). There's not much point in widening Echo/Fox Trot - wingtip clearance to parked aircraft on the South Ramp or incursion into the 6/24 safety area is the prohibition there.
What are you on? If you're overnighting, are you flying the Dash 8?
High speeds on that short of a runway wouldn't do much. Darn I was hoping echo or fox would get re done or blended into one taxiway. I won't say what company I work for as people would prolly send a letter to the FAA I took a picture while taxing or something dumb.
The Tail is N868EM, for anyone who wants to plane stalk.
For MGOSpeculation sake, The M jet, Browns jet, and Secretary of State's DC-9 were all on the tarmac at the same time that Bill Belichick and Ben Stiller were on island.
Now if only Delta could put the M logo on the back of my window seat
There once was a Wolverine from Nantucket...
using University plane for sailing trip.
