In case yunz missed it yesterday, the Steelers apparently got an upgrade from a 752 to a 762 for winning the Superbowl. They flew back to PIT on N646US, painted in new colors, around 3:45pm.

Go Stillers!

A Stiller is a member of a team that doesn't get eliminated in the first round.

Thanks for the picture, now I can be sure that it was indeed the Steelers' flight.

A friend and myself were waiting at DTW for our flight back home yesterday afternoon, suddenly I saw the US Airways plane in new colors and I was already thinking that it was either the Steelers' flight or a fan charter flight. Why else should a US Airways widebody be in DTW?

I was walking up to A60-ish to get a Rio Wrap when I just happened to look up and saw that plane taking off. Commented to my FO "I wonder if that was some special thing for the super bowl.." I guess it was, haha.


There was a DC-10-30 that left around 830 in the morning yesterday also- anybody know if that was something special?

I sure hope there was alot of cheese on that flight back to Seattle, because Lord knows they've provided enough whine in the past 48 hours.  sarcastic 

Nice to see dem Stillers gettin one of them fancy widebody planes n'at. As for the original poster... the Steelers almost always flew in a Boeing this year, although the occassional A321 did sneak in this season. US seemed to do a good job of getting the new color scheme on many of these Steelers post season flights, and especially this flight when thousands were expected to be at the airport to see them.

Is it me, or does it seem to be a pretty steep flare in that pic? Maybe I'm just too used to RJ's lately.

When "the Bus" does fly "home," my guess is it'll be on a DC9 or CRJ... because his home actually is DTW, as soon as he's done cleaning up his loose ends in the city of Champions.

Pretty awsome to win the Superbowl in your home-city, isn't it?

Yep, good for him too, he's been one of the few good guys who kept his nose clean and carried himself with class for a long time now.

Pretty awesome for your team to win the Super Bowl the first time in your life time too... I wasn't around quite yet in 1979.

I never claimed that the Steelers are "my team". Yes, I cheered for them when I had the unique chance to attend a Superbowl show. I have very few knowledge of American football but I spontaneously liked the Steelers because they come from an area in the USA which you can compare to the area in Germany I am from (steel industry), and I had a seat surrounded by Steelers fans which made me cheer automatically when they also did.

PHL-LGW was already rumored in that 753 Transatlantic thread last week, lol. Besides, they already run the pointless CRJ-440 to IND from PHL, so why not this too? Makes about as much sense.
