In previous years philly has flown the DC10 quite a few times a year but now they just fly a NWA 752 to their games. All the NFL teams who charter with NWA are allowed an upgrade each year from their normal equipment to a 742. This plane is typically used to charter friends and family to the game. Hence why they chose MIA. Last year they chose SFO.

Here? I saw you last night at Rigobertos Scotty, though you did not recognize me.

When did you leave Arizona?
