    According to FlightAware, they came in from Willow Run (KYIP) and departed about two hours later for Memphis. Right now, they are en-route from Memphis to El Paso. I noticed there are no side windows on the jet, and I see an "Active Aero Group" logo on the tail.

    I found this on-line about them - they are USA Jet's parent company...learn something new every day!
    Active Aero Group, through its Active Aero Charter unit, can help your airfreight and a carrier's cargo capacity find each other. The company's online CharterNet service lets shippers list freight for transport so carriers can bid for the business. Active Aero Charter works with some 170 carriers that collectively maintain some 2,000 aircraft of more than 100 types. About a third of the flights brokered through CharterNet are undertaken by Active Aero Group subsidiary USA Jet Airlines, which transports air cargo with a fleet of more than two dozen planes, mainly Dassault Falcon 20s and McDonnell Douglass DC-9s.

    I've seen their DC-9s here on hockey charters in the past, never knew they had Falcons too. Interesting visitor, to say the least!

    fred, that looks like one fun and powerful airplane! kinda reminds me of this one:

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    I caught the Kalitta bird, too...







    In a couple of shots I got of her climbing out (not really good enough to post) you can see on the starboard wing the remnants of her old registration - CN-RMP - from her days with Royal Air Maroc.

    Also saw the ExpressJet ERJ the same afternoon.

    Not sure, Matt. I've seen that same jet in to FRG a few times before on charter work, but I don't know who they were for.
