Well, I finally got the charter schedule for Columbus for the National Championship game between The Ohio State University and the University of Florida in Glendale/Phoenix. Quite frankly, the schedule this year is disappointing. The last time the Buckeyes went to the National Championship in 2003, there were several widebody charters, including several ATA L-1011s, 2 Northwest 742s, and a United 744. This year, there will be only one heavy making the trek between CMH and PHX. Here's the complete schedule to date:

Airline / Aircraft / Dept Time from CMH / Classification

01/06/07 CMH-PHX

Miami Air / 738 / 05:30 / Charter

indeed very dissapointing. Thank you very much for posting. I was really hoping to see some heavies here in PHX again. With all the bowls I thought there would be a lot more, but it has been very dissapointing.

In 2003 when there were some 742 and 744's at CMH for Fiesta Bowl charters, were any of the gates at CMH widebody capable? Or were the aircraft parted at remote stands? Thanks.

I believe that means that you can book a seat on that plane through the airline, with the others being charters for alumni groups and the like.



Is it bad that I get excited to see even a CRJ overfly? Man, what this place does to you

Correct - you can book these flights direct with Delta or Southwest (the extra sections mentioned).


Likewise disappointed... Probably won't even make the drive to sky harbor if the best that can be done is an Omni DC-10. 737s/757s/MD80s are a dime a dozen these days... I'm relatively young, but I'm sad that they days when NW/TW/DL flew heavies into PHX as a regular part of the schedule are gone...

Thats quite dissapointing. I was hoping at least that someone would charter in a 777, I think UA brought one in a year or 2 ago.

a DC-10 will be interesting to see.

But are any of the gates at CMH able to handle it?

United was not able to release an aircraft this year for the bowl games, especially with one being out of service due to the unfortunate incident at IAD during a water canon salute where foam was released instead of water, severely damaging the engines.

Most gates at CMH are widebody capable, except those that have been reconfigured for RJ use or that have had the safety circle redrawn for just narrowbody use. United's gate B29 was used for both the 744 and 772 when they flew in for bowl charters. Northwest's gates are also capable of handling widebodies.

Using this map for reference, the following gates have the ability to handle widebody jets:

Gates A2, B21*, B29-B36, C46, C48-C49, C55-C56.

*The jetway at B21 has been removed for Skybus operations.

One of the reasons for the lack of widebodies is the fact that the Buckeyes are flying commercially or driving to AZ individually from their home towns. I would imagine, however, that they will fly home as a team - hopefully as the new national champions.

On the 6th, the 0600 and 0700 Miami Air departures from LCK are the OSU Marching Band's charters, I'm quite sure.

The team charter was not printed in the schedule I received. Though in past years, they have left earlier in the week than most of the public/private charters.

There are published reports that the team is not traveling as a group as many of the players are at home:

"Travel plans:

Ohio State players are leaving on their own to get to Arizona by Saturday. Their air travel is paid for since the Buckeyes won't be traveling as a team.

Players, who were released for the holidays on Dec. 23, have to be at the bowl site by Saturday for an initial team meeting to be followed by a practice. The Buckeyes will practice for three days before their required bowl report date on Jan. 2, which is when Florida's team will gather in the Phoenix area."

There are guys that I went to high school with that are on a team charter of sorts. Its possible that the entire team isn't together, but some of them are.

If we are going to dig from Ohio news sources: "When the Ohio State Buckeyes board their charter flight for Arizona on Saturday, the airplane ought to know where to go on its own."

Wish they'd have listed this before. But I guess I should have just gone to the airport and waited anyway. Oh well...

went down to PHX and saw the arrival of the L1011, and the Omni DC-10. There where many diffenerent charters parked all around the field. 3 Champion 727s, an ATA 757-300 and L1011, Omni DC-10, 757, Pan Am 727, and many others. On a side note an Air Atlanta Icelandic 747-400F landed too. I have no idea what for, maybe the Barret Jackson auctions later on. That was cool to see also.

It sure was cool seeing the Tristar.

I thought about driving up to PHX today but decided against it and to watch on FlightAware instead.
