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

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).
