Several sources at the Rockford Airport have reported that an Antonov An-124 is about to land at the Rockford Airport.
Sources said the Antonov An-124 departed Germany and is headed for the Rockford Airport.
It is scheduled to land around 11 pm.
Sources said it is going to land on runway 7/25.
Sources said it will probably use the ILS on runway 7 to land.
The best place to view that, is on Beltline rd at Kishwaukee.
If it does happen to land on 25, then the best place would be on Falcon rd.
Both places are marked on the map.
If you do go out and watch it land, be very careful and send us your video/photos!
