Who Operates N698SS B727?

Tue Apr 29, 2003 11:10 pm

Can anyone help me find this tail number?

It's a B727-200 with the REG# N698SS. It has the Texas Rangers logo on the tail. Just took a pic of it and would like to upload it.

Please also advise the type/series of this 27 as well.

Thanks in advance.

A check of the N-registration database at http://www.landings.com shows no record of N698SS...

Drip,

I also just checked the FAA's Aircraft Registration database, updated as of 08-Apr-03, and it shows no N698SS (it does show a 698SP and the next registration is 698SW), so it must have been registered after 8-Apr. Their next update to the database is 10-May.

Southwest Sports is the holding company for Tom Hick's two sports teams in Dallas. He owns the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Stars, but he is trying to sell the Stars right now. I don't know why, they are a much more successful team than the Rangers, that is for sure!!

I also have to wonder why he didn't get a 737 or a MD-80 with a two-man crew instead of a 3 man crew. This plane sits at Dallas Love Field a lot when the Rangers are in town. There is not a good place to try and photograph it though.

The Stars as far as I am aware of, do not have their own plane. Just the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Mavericks.

Here is a link to their site.

Go Mavs !!

They take away our North Stars and now they want to get rid of them years later! Serves them right!
