Sun Mar 09, 2003 1:49 pm

How come Northwest flew from Springfield, MO (SGF) to Atlanta (ATL) today on a Boeing 757-300? Is this for sport charter flight? I don't know about Springfield have sports there or just a charter flight.

Isn't Springfield a college town?

Its March Madness college basketball season, maybe they were going to Atlanta to take on a Georgia team for the tournament before the Final 4.

Springfield is the third largest city in Missouri and home to Southwest Missouri State University, the 2nd largest public university in Missouri. SMSU is a member of the Missouri Valley Confrence, that means the Bears are currently in St. Louis for the MVC playoffs. So I am not sure why there would be a charter 753 and 727 in SGF today.

But, one clue is that Branson is about an hour away from SGF

I saw the NW 753 in ATL this morning. It was parked at the north GA ramp just east of Delta Maintenance North.
