What Plane Does The 49ers Use?

Tue Sep 30, 2003 4:31 am

I saw the UAL plane but all I saw was the tale. Do they use a 777 or 762/3?

Depends...they use United for their flights; but it can be either a 747 or 767-300.
In the Alaska bush I'd rather have a two hour bladder and three hours of gas than vice versa.

I miss the DC-10's. They used the same plane and crew threw thier Super Bowl run. Its was good luck. Funny now with the 763 or 744 they are not as good. Then this year the Raiders went from HA DC-10 to I assume a 763. They are not as good......Maybe the DC-10 is good lick. Buffalo uses a MD-11 and they are better....things that make you go hhmmmmm?

I don't think you need a 3-holer to be good. The Chiefs use a DL 767-300 and they are 4-0. GO CHIEFS!!!

No i think the 3-holers have a touch to them....the 3 years the Dallas Cowboys won the super bowl in the 90's (27,28,30) they used a 727 durring the regular season and the DC-10 for the playoffs/super bowls. Now i think they use a 757/767 and look at them now. Hmmm no thinking required, whatever team uses the ole 3-holers are gonna go places....

I guess Buffalo will win the Super Bowl then this year, since they are using a World Airways MD-11...

Last year the 49ers came into STL on a UAL 744, this year it was a 767. Arizona came in on an America West 757.

Guys, I think the fact that both Dallas and San Francisco aren't spending as much on players (in the 49er's case, they're still paying off salary cap from six years ago) has more to do with losing than does whether they're flying a 3-holer or a 2-holer...

It does seem rather suspcious, however... ;D
