Air Horse One [Boeing 727] Visits Rochester | March 8th, 2021

Hello Community!

Our Kalitta service experienced another hiccup this week when N730CK had an issue after landing. It was supposed to leave right after 5 AM, but by 9 AM a replacement was being sent. This replacement happened to be a 727-200 N725CK, commonly known as Air Horse One. Sadly, it probably flew in empty and did not have horses onboard. As far as I know, this is the first 727 to visit here after Kalitta’s other ones moved from their CVG base to their MIA one back in August.

Had to start my free trial of Topaz Sharpen AI as I accidentally left the camera in AF-S after doing some testing.
