The Odd Flight of FedEx Flt. 9000


#1

Hello! I’m new and was wondering if anybody could tell me what’s going on here?

flightaware.com/live/flight/FDX9000

Reading other posts, it seems that a flight at a 9000 level flight number is a charter, but, chartering fedex, and doing big loops? Doesn’t make sense to me.

I looked for new reports on it in Greensboro, and MEM, but nothing. Anything could help. Thanks!

9000 series flight often are for maintenence flights, more likely for a FDX plane.

Piedmont Triad (KGSO) has a rather large maintenance activity, TIMCO (Triad International Maintenance Company). Im sure you can see quite a few maintenance flights out of there.
