Special Visitor @ KBIV


Hello! Today at West Michigan Regional Airport in Holland, Michigan (KBIV) we had a Kalitta Air Charter Cargo B734 (N730CK) fly in today for some cargo! This is the largest aircraft the airport has seen in many years so there were quite a few people from the area watching to see this beast. With our runway being 6,000ft long, the 734 took up most of the runway on landing and take-off. Just thought I’d share some pictures! Thanks for viewing!

The pilots said it came from British Airways! Always a fun sight to see.

Those classic 734 cockpits are really awesome to see, nice shots!

Really got lucky, it was either going to the 734 or a 727. Both I would’ve been happy with.

These 737 Classics are becoming increasingly rare to find, I must say you were very lucky to get up close with one.

I’m also guessing they used either Flaps 15 or 25 for departure.

Yes they were, had to wing walk them while they were taxiing out and it looked to be at a higher setting. Crazy!
