Varig Aircraft In Zurich Today (May 22)?

Tue May 23, 2006 4:49 am

The Brasilien football national team prepares for the World Cup in Weggis, Switzerland, at the Lake of Lucerne. Today I read in the free evening newspaper "Heute" that most team members arrived today in ZRH from Rio on RG flight 8772, short after 1400 hours. Does anybody know what kind of flight this was? Charter? What kind of aircraft?

and went on to MUC:

On the sports news (May 22, 2220) of Swiss TV SF2 the showed this beautiful Varig MD 11 landing in ZRH. I wished we could see this aircraft regularly here and I wished I were at the airport to take a pic. If anybody is interested I think you will find this broadcast online later on www.sf.tv (Sendungen A-Z).
