Attn: CLT Spotters - NW DC-9-10

Fri Dec 31, 2004 5:58 am

Currently on the ground in Charlotte is a NW DC-9-10 being used as a charter for some members of Green Bay Packers football team and staff attending (former NFL player) Reggie White's funeral today.

Operated as NWA9980 this morning, leaving shortly as NWA9981 back to GRB.

Just noticed on that it's suppose to arrive back in GRB about 5:30 p.m. I heard about 50 members of the Packer organization was attending - perfect plane for the size.

No, the perfect plane size-wise would be the CRJ-200...

Flight wise, the DC9-10 IS the perfect plane

CRE is correct. We are talking football know, large people.
The perfect plane is the model 10 with some F class seats. I'm sure they were occupied. The middle seat was unoccupied with armrests can bet on it.
The RJ would be kinda heavy with 40 or 50 football players, don't ja think?
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.
