Monday Daytona is gonna be getting 3 Delta 764s.

Arriving @ 10am, 11am and noon.

Departing @ noon, 1pm and 2pm.

The 1pm departure will be Delta Flight 9801, the standard flight # for the Patriots Charters. So, I'm guessing the superbowl champs will be on board.

Anyone interested in a little DAB picture making? .. anyone want a print of these rare traffic movements?  Big grin

I was out on Midway for about an hour and saw the first one leave... The 764 parked at the international terminal is DL9801 that you thought was the Patriot plane... I saw a bus cruise by on Midway with a sign saying "Patriot Family and Players" so I would definitely say its them...

BTW talk about Daytona-Hartsfield Jackson International.... There were 4 DL planes in town at once...

The real reason why they flew our of DAB is because Rick is a patriots fan who used to work Ops at DAB up till a few weeks ago and could have gone right up to the plane, but instead, Im in Atlanta now doing consulting and decided to rub it in my face!

Hey all,

I'm up working in the airport administrative offices as we speak.

Delta's N840MH is parked here at the International Terminal, I assume that is the aircraft the Patriots are flying out on.

I cannot see which aircraft is parked here at the gate, but it sure looks much nicer than the MD-88s and CRJs we normally see in Delta colors!

Hope you get some nice shots, Adam...

Still wondering why DAB vs. JAX. We're the Pats staying away from Jacksonville proper on purpose. That's the only reason I could understand.

They sure don't need the extra 500ft. of runway at DAB.

I was out in Orlando watching the Superbowl on TV yesterday and just got back around 1:45. I saw two 764s at DAB when I drove by, one was at the domestic terminal and the other at the International Terminal.

There was a thing on the Channel 13 News (Orlando) today showing the Patriots getting their equipment loaded up about the time I left Orlando. When I got to DAB, it was still there. I assume Patriots were parked at International Terminal to keep away from everyone else since it is rarely used other than those Vintage Kingair flights to Bahamas. I assume it was the Patriots plane that left at 2:30. Only one 764 took off over my place.

There is a Transmeridian 757 coming back this evening too.

The final 767-400er, N838MH, just departed. I'm mad, I had my camera ready out on the balcony here in the admin offices, and just as I hit the shutter, the battery died.... Oh well.

Nice to see DAB getting a lot of the JAX overflow. I know how busy we can get in the 24 hours after a Super Bowl, it can get some hectic. I imagine the JAX checkpoints are swamped today.

Someone had told me that the Pats were staying in St. Augustine and that it was somehow easier to fly out of DAB rather than JAX... I guess since there is less traffic (aviation and car-wise) they can keep a lower profile.

Pats were indeed staying in St. Augustine (it fits in perfectly with Belicheck's plan to keep players out of the spotlight and focused on the game). Why DAB over JAX I don't know, but I'm sure a 767-400 would be a sight at DAB (sure beats CRJs, ERJs, and MD-80s).

I am sure DAB will get a couple more 767's in the next few weeks. Daytona 500 right around the corner.

yeah... the party is over. Sure was cool to see the 764's in dab. Weather coulda been better, but I got one worth uploading. It's in the Q and should be screened in 3-4 days. (I deleted my older one out of the Q since this one is better.. the old shot can be seen at 'another' site)

I just wanted to second or third that the Pats were in St. Augestine....as for why DAB over JAX....well since JAX is actually north of town and St. Augestine is right in the middle, it would make DAB a little bit shorter of a ride. Also SGJ had three DL738's.....one of them going to LAX today. Couldn't imagine that takeoff if it was full plus fuel. and SGJ is only 75 feet wide.

These St. Augustine DL 738's made me a little curious about the airport so I did a little research. I found codes of both SGJ and UST for the same airport. and to correct LV Rwy 13-31 is actually 7996 feet long x 150 feet wide. I am sorry I cannot provide a link but if you go airnav.com and type in airport code UST you will get all the info including a good airport diagram and even a photo. I was actually surprised how large the airport is, even has an FAA Tower.

Yeah, SGJ just got the tower less than 2 years ago. When I first started flying there to go to the FlyBy cafe it was uncontrolled. Busy and interesting little airport. And Patty Wagstaff and Dale Snodgrass (airshow greats) have their planes based there, and you can see Grumman E-2 Hawkeyes, C-2's and F-5's there as well.

Brian:

The Patriots flew out on N840MH, which was the 2nd out of 3 767s to leave today. It was parked at the old International Terminal, where the Patriots boarded from there.
