Heathrow, Salt Lake City & Los Angeles – Thursday 12th March 2020 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

In December last year when Boeing announced that they were finally halting production of the troubled and grounded 737 MAX, a group of us decided that early 2020 was the the optimum time for a bash of the Boeing sites around Seattle and Moses Lake. All these sites are now well known to have many stored 737 MAX sitting around.

Also known at that time was that there would be three US Military air shows within one March week of each other at NAF El Centro, MCAS Yuma and USAFB Luke, and so a plan was hatched to do all these shows with a Seattle getaway in between. Of course back then, the news of what was happening in China was not known……

So having just missed the soon to be implemented Trump travel ban, we departed Heathrow on Delta Air Lines A330 N852NW as DAL17 towards Salt Lake City…….

Salt Lake City

I was treated to beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains and the Great Salt Lake as we descended towards Salt Lake City.

A worryingly short transit time to catch our connecting flight to Los Angeles, as we also had to clear US Immigration but this was accomplished in very quick time. These few noted in the short time here before we boarded Delta Air Lines A321 N382DN as DAL2273 towards LAX.
