Northwest DC-10 Arriving In MKE

Sun Apr 23, 2006 2:44 am

Can anyone tell me why a NW DC-10 is landing at MKE... it just flew over my house. I checked and its arriving from MSP and its flight number is 9846!! Obviously its a charter flight with that flight number!!



Thanks Joey

The Milwaukee Bucks are playing Sunday night in Detroit in the NBA Playoffs...could it be picking them up for that?

Interesting I thought that the Milwaukee Bucks usually take a Midwest flight for there travels... could very well be it though!!!

The DC10 departed for Gulfport, MS. and then returned to MSP. Possible military charter?

We had a National Guard deployment on Sat. (God Bless Them)
It was a military charter.
Also the Bucks use YX for their charters.
They are the offical airline of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Both AA and NWA were military charters.

The only Wisconsin pro sports team that uses NWA are the Packers. Bucks and Brewers are YX customers.
