WWE Wrestling Flying Into EMA?

Sun Jun 01, 2003 6:28 am

Just heard that the up coming WWE Insurrextion tour visiting Nottingham will have some flights into EMA? Anybody know any truth behind this statement?

I would believe that the WWE would be operating the Challenger jet. I do not know what the RWY lengths are there but I would imagine that there would not be a chartered widebody in there. Usually WWE flies commercial aircraft except for Vince McMahon, Linda McMahon or the other executives within the company.

Am not sure of lengths either, but EMA does take 747's...

Actually, on flights to the UK, they usually charter a plane.

Look for it to be the 757 that flys for Sport Jet, The white one with purple trim.

In fact, here is a shot of what I am trying to say, WWF flying into the UK;

For the recent bout at Sheffield they used B727 N211DB which used EMA as its gateway.
I guess it could be the same machine again for the Nottingham bout - hopefully they use something different though  Wink/being sarcastic

Some interesting finds there. If anybody could get some confirmed information, that would be great. The closest to Nottingham Ice Arena would be EMA, so it would make sense? Would love to get that photo, as I will be in attendence on Friday night.

They will be in Newcastle for Insurrextion and one other city for another event.

Cheers,

WWE Wrestling Leaving EMA NOW!

Sat Jun 07, 2003 7:25 pm

Just to let you know, the WWE superstars have now left EMA and should be on-route to Newcastle! I got photos and a shirt multi signed yesterday, and it was great - so was the live show at Nottingham!

Newcastle, you'll love it!
