Team charter- the NFL's Tampa Bay plays the Carolina Panthers in London on Sunday.
Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

I think is the first time the Bucs aren’t flying lady Penelope. The last couple of times they’ve been they flew on her and I would sneak a tug out to photograph her between flights I was working
AVL my new Hometown airport! Farewell TPA

A bit off topic but also yesterday 10-Oct, BA flew a second 772 LGW-TPA and back, is was appx two hours ahead of the normally scheduled BA2167/2166. Anyone have info on why? I checked around and it did not appear to be a "rescue" flight or delayed from the day earlier as no issues over the past few days.

"British Airways Boeing 777-236ER G-VIIO positioned London Gatwick – Tampa as BA9159 this morning in order to operate a Tampa – London Gatwick charter as BA8610 in connection with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL game in London on 13th October."

The aircraft was in SF after bringing the Oakland Raiders back on Monday after beating the Chicago Bears in London.
