Anyone know what this bird was doing in Indy? Since it's not a major hub for NWA and the Indianapolis Colts are done playing football, the only thing I can think of is a military charter. Any ideas??

I didn't think they had any 747-200's parked at Victorville. I have only heard about them going to Marana, in Arizonia, to be retired.....

This is probably just a military charter.....
