Pan Am Back To MSY Today!

Sun Oct 10, 2004 10:28 pm

Another blast from the past for all you MSY spotters out there (and for me personally, as I'm what you would call a Pan Am fanatic). This Clipper is wihout question bringing in a bunch of Tampa Bay Bucs fans to watch their 0-4 team go 0-5 against the Saints. The plane should be here until at least 4:00pm I would imagine. Anyway, here are the details.

Missed it too. Wonder why they used them? I guess they are doing so badly this year that the owners decided to downgrade them to fake PanAm.

SWA TPA, hey, I have to do what I can to TRY to show support for the Saints. Trust me after all these years, it's not easy. They are pathetic.  Smile

The PA 727 was parked on the west ramp area next to the Bucs' chartered 757 (753 it looked like) and a UPS Airbus. You could see that blue globe from two miles away...quite a sight!

It just takes Steve a little longer to admit what the rest of us already know, and have been saying all along: the Saints suck Big grin.

Glad you got to see one of your favorites, Steve!
