And what is US Transportation Command?
Charter for the US Military:
6500’ is certainly a bit squeezy for a 747, it could get in (lots of reverse thrust), but getting out with a load would be fun. 8000’ and no problem.
I’d imagine they might have gotten it in with a 40 lb. payload and 100 lbs. of fuel! I wish I would have seen this earlier, as the airport is only a few miles away from me. I know for years there was an old DC-10 there, though I think it was dismantled as opposed to having to take off.
