I would guess something related to the Drake basketball team, but it looks like they flew Xtra (and were going to TPA).

I swore I saw a SWA 737 blast off this morning when I was loading my car at the Radisson Hotel Des Moines airport. I thought I was seeing things.  Wink

Well then, they have 38 minutes to get from DAL to TPA or they'll miss the game.

WN 7048 is a military charter. WN 7000 flight numbers are for military charters. The aircraft flew as a ferry flt 8600 DAL-DSM (0615-0800) then turned around as the military charter as flt 7048 DSM-DAL (0900-1050).
