If it had been clear out (it wasn't), and if I would have remembered (I didn't), I would have seen the Stars as they came into MSP on Wednesday. The flyways in either direction are only about 30 miles away from me. I would have seen them fairly easily as they started to descend towards MSP.
My telescope and I love to watch airplanes in the sky. I'll have to catch N757SS someday.
Dallas, Detroit, Columbus, and New Jersey(Why?) are the only teams I know of that have dedicated aircraft. (Columbus' DC-9-32 is just a former Champion air with their name painted over the tail and the Champion Air title removed from the fuselage.)
