Back in August, the Patriots confirmed they had purchased two 767 Boeing wide-body jets for team travel, complete with gaudy graphic wraps that included all five of their Lombardis on the tail wing. They've yet to deploy either of the airKrafts (their team owner name pun, not mine) -- until now.
The Patriots will make their inaugural flight on their team plane on Wednesday, according to a release from the Rhode Island Airport Corporation. The journey will include a pre-flight press conference to celebrate the inaugural flight, which will depart from T.F. Green Airport (listed as the official airport of the Patriots) with the destination set for Tampa Bay, Florida.
