[CLOSED] Delta VA Queen of the Skies Sendoff @ RKSI - 170200ZDEC17


Join Delta VA as we host the real time send off of the Boeing B747 from American Mainline Airlines Fleets. We will be departing RKSI at the same time the actual final Boeing 747-400 flight is departing out of the airport. We will be doing an ultra long haul flight to KDTW where we will be retiring the B744 from not just Delta Air Lines’ fleet but the Delta VA fleet as well. All are welcomed to join this momentous occasion. Expect this to be a long flight but the departure and arrival time should work perfectly for all in the continental US.

Important to note that this flight would leave on the 16th of December for all living in the US
