Thanks for the info. But both these planes are registered in Wilmington DE and both seem to be investment advisory firms, not sight-seeing.
I realize the FAA doesn’t file flight plans (but perhaps they should?); however, I thought a IFR flight plan with the same destination & origin would sort of set some sort of flag as a possible glich.
Being an investment company may just be the name of the company the aircraft is registered under. Take, for instance, N86RL. It is registered in Wilmington, DE to a Saunders Aviation. I happen to know for a fact that this plane is privately owned, and that owner actually has a construction company in the Tampa area. From what I have been told, Wilmington, DE is a VERY popular place to register aircraft for tax reasons.
As far as filing IFR for the same origin/destination, it happens all the time at RVS for IFR training flights.
I seem to remember quite a few a/c discussed in these forums that have been registered in DE. I know Travolta’s 707 is regisetered out of there, and I know there were more. I’ll have to investigate…when I get around to it.
