  • JAL 747

    The last thing one might expect to see while driving down a two-lane highway in the middle of rural Washington state is a JAL 747 flying low overhead, circling, landing and then taking off again. But it turns out that for 38 years, JAL has maintained a pilot's training center at the Grant County International Airport, as has FedEx.

  • FedEx landing

    At the Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake, Wash., on June 27, a pilot training on a FedEx 727 lands before immediately taking off again.

    As part of the pilot's training, the trainee flying this FedEx 727 takes off, circles around, lands and then takes off again without even stopping.
