Thanks a lot for the info! They've definitely earned a good flight home after beating the Bears. What an awesome game!!!
I was wondering, where did you find out that info? I'd love to be able to check on the flight status of the Pack, Brewers, Bucks, etc. Is there a website where you can find out the flight plans of your favorite sports teams? I checked on nwa.com but it wouldn't give me any info about this flight.
Thanks a lot--Go Pack!

Here is the website... http://www.fboweb.com


The basic flight tracker is ONLY $9.95 a month, UNLIMITED! The expanded is only $14.95 a month UNLIMITED!

Its an excellent site. I love it.

BTW, The packers USUALLY fly on 757's of NW. Baltimore Ravens flew on a DL 757.
It seems like more teams use NW.

Whats the status of the NW 727 sports charter a/c? Are they still flying? I last saw 2 of them here in State College about a month ago for a pre-season game between the 76'ers & Wizards.

NWA still flies alot of hockey and basketball teams on the 727's...they have contracts to like 12 football teams...when the 727's are gone, they are considering converting airbus A/C to fit the needs of the NBA and hockey...
