Actually, I don’t know. I would be interested as I am a huge fan of The Boss (as well as a huge fan of the pictured airline). I thought it would be appropriate if Southwest used that song in an ad campaign when they started Philly, for one to overcome the sensation that they only serve secondary airports

Coincidently, you snapped that pic at your home airport in The City of Brotherly Love.

funny thing, I am a huge fan of Bruce myself. Though I dont know the type of plane he flies on, I would assume that Sony provides, to his disposal, plane and pilot. Probably something small and fast!

Well, I guess I'll find out tomorrow. He plays here in Philly (Upper Darby actually) . I have heard it's a DC9. Just like to know if he has titles on the thing. U2's Vertigo tour plane visited this weekend. A nice repaint of an AC Jetz A319.

Well in didn't show up at PHL or PNE. So I guess he bussed it from NY.
BTW, it's RUNWAY27RIGHT. I don't know what a RUNWAT is.
