I was tracking flights in the vicinity of South Bend Regional (KSBN) a while back, and I noticed a Cessna Citation flying out of South Bend with the tail number N42ND. Im a student at the University Of Notre Dame, and the university is only about five miles from the airport, so the ND in the tail number caught my eye. (Its actually pretty cool, because the campus is right under the extended centerline of 9R/27L, and so, all the traffic on final for 27L flies right over the campus. Once, I was lucky enough to get a nice picture of Air Force One over the Golden Dome when President Bush was in town. But, those are all stories for another time.) Anyway, I noticed that N42ND belonged to the university. I did some FAA registration searches and determined that it is the only aircraft owned by the university. Its a Cessna 560 Citation 5, and from what I understand, it is used primarily by the football staff for recruiting and the president of the university for whatever else. Anyway, seems to be a glitch in the system.
Anybody know if N42ND made it back to KSBN last night?
Also, does anybody else know or have been surprised by aircraft owned by a particular school or corporation?
