MSY Spotters!

Thu Dec 26, 2002 2:43 am

Keep an eye out for N801DM that will be bringing the Dallas Mavericks to town to face the Hornets. I can't wait till our NBA team returns to Charlotte so I can once again see these team's private jets. Also, Mark Cuban may bring his G-V to town as well, N718MC.

Thanks for the reminder! I've been tracking and taking photos of the NBA charter aircraft that have visited MSY this year. Working for the airport operator and having ID access onto the ramp helps a bunch.

We've seen an Air Canada Jetz 737-200, Utah Jazz's unmarked 757, and too many NW 727-200's to count. We've been looking forward to the Mav's visit.

IMHO, though, the Hornets 727 is still the best looking one out there.
