I live in RI, USA and my local airport is KPVD, “Providence, RI”. The largest planes that land here are maybe a 757, although Air Force One did land here last October (first 747 i knew of that could land here).
Well, i’m checking flightaware and there seems to be an A340-300 with Iberia - Lineas Aereas de Espana “Iberia” on its way here from Barajas Int’l.
It’s about 50 minutes out and the frequency for KPVD is down on LiveATC so i can’t even listen. Could this be a mistake??? I have NO idea how an A340-300 could land here at KPVD even with no fuel, as the longest runway is 7,166ft. And why would this plane be landing HERE?? I’ve never heard of an international flight landing here in KPVD.
It’s flight IBE2940 date is 6/1/11
Any input is appreciated!
