* RP-C1542 DC-9-31  ex N935VJ, departed MHV on delivery to Cebu Pacific on 01Mar-2003, routing eastward across the Atlantic. N935VJ arrived at MHV for storage on 25Jan-2001, ferried MHV-MZJ 24Jun-2002 for overhaul, returned MZJ-MHV on 26Nov-2002 for repaint and final delivery mods.
* N635AW A320  was noted on 04Mar-2003 as a fuselage hulk, sitting next to a low-loader. Still present on 07Mar-2003.
* N302FV B727-230(F)  was noted air-testing at Tucson 03Mar and 06Mar. I received a report of a Northern Air Cargo 727 on the ramp at Tucson, without additional info. Piecing the story together, I think the NAC 727 is N302FV, and is being air-tested prior to delivery. Highly unconfirmed at this point!
* N35084 DC-10  ex-Hawaiian, was noted at Goodyear 03Mar-2003 being scrapped. Registration was cancelled on 20Feb-2003 (Thanks to S. Cook).
* N222DZ B737-35B  Delta, ferried GYR-ATL 17Feb-2003 and returned to service (Thanks to S. Cook).
* N1868M BD700 Global Express  was photographed arriving at PHX on 02Mar-2003. Aircraft was registered on 18Feb-2003. The photo is posted here:
* N757AF B757-200  was noted at PHX 05Mar-2003 at the Cutter ramp. It was here for the NBA Portland Trailblazers, and departed late 06Mar-2003 after the game.
