Re: 2020 MLB Charters

My most updated 2020 MLB list is as follows: Private N862RW (blocked on flight aware/flight radar 24) Detroit Tigers The Detroit Tigers fly on N682RW. Aircraft owned by the Ilitch family and is shared with the Detroit Red Wings. Mike Ilitch purchased the Detroit Red Wings in June of '82, hence 682RW.
