Quoting Warszawa (Reply 9): It was a Charter. New Orleans Hornets NBA sports team flew in from SAT. Engine caught fire upon arrival. Many believe its a bad, very bad, omen for tonights Game 7.
The Spurs are my team, but if the Hornets win is fine with me, more for the people in NO, God knows they need a some happy times after this past years.
May be the Hornets are so hot at home that the produced the spontaneous combustion of the engine.

Not to pile on, but the Hornets do not charter on an RJ. Secondly, they flew back to MSY after game 6 last Thursday night. Third, this incident occurred yesterday. Finally, the Hornets fly into/out of an airport a lot closer to New Orleans...namely MSY
Quoting MSYtristar (Reply 15): Not sure what happened to their 727-200...guess fuel costs got too high.
It's been sitting on the north GA ramp for a number of months now...as 71Zulu notes, it's up for sale.

LOF did hauled Richmond Spyeders basketball team to an from RIC to PIT and the same with Ducane (or however you spell it) from PIT to RIC and back. WIth regular pax. Yeah that was fun getting the service cart down the aisle of an EMB145. Seeing as how they are college teams, they were actually smart enough to move their legs out of the aisle for me to push the service cart.
As far as those engine fires, you'll have that sometimes.... Kind of funny how something like that has to happen at an outstation and never at home.
