It's based there. Not sure why it came to be GSO where they store it but that's where it's kept:

Not an interesting plane, just an AA 737 but the fun part is... I was on it. My bf was sitting out on the porch and I happened to be flying in. He looked at Flight Aware out of curiosity and it was my plane. Didn't have the big zoom out and though we are in the flight path, we are a bit away from the airport. If you fly into CLT, go south and turn north, we likely see you.
