You beat me to it! I will definitely be there for the departure and will upload some pics if I can.

Any idea what it might cost to charter an A333 from SBN-DUB?

Please do, if you can. When I was a student at ND, Delta mainline still flew to CVG (using 732s) and SBN would get an occasional Rich International L-1011.

NICE! This is excellent. I am a Notre Dame alum presently on campus for a Recruiting Event. I'll be driving back to Chicago later tonight. I'll drive *out of my way* to see the bird in action at SBN!

Thanks for the post!!!

GO IRISH!

I MISSED IT!

The flight plan was filed for a 1910L departure, but just as I was exiting the highway at 1845, he was already climbing out!   

I guess I will have to flight follow the return.

I can't wait to watch the game! My oldest brother is an ND alum and I always loved going to football games. I'm flying over SBN in about 30 minutes so I'll look for it from above!

By cruiser, destroyer, or aircraft carrier?
