Well we just returned from our final regular season flying away game trip this season. I managed to take quite a few pictures this trip also as I’m taking them for another project with the AA as well (more on that later). Click on any Image for a Larger One.

The Plane Ride

We arrived at the stadium at 10am this past Friday to load the busses with the luggage, equipment and team. Under police escort we headed to the Airport to catch our private chartered jet to North Carolina. This week was a stray from the norm as instead of the usual Cheeseburgers served when you walk through the plane door we were given Chick-Fil-A sandwhiches as well as our usual bag of “goodies” consiting of: Mojo Bar, Snickers bar, Apple, Sandwich, Crackers, Cheese, Powerade, Water, Chips and Peanuts. The flight took about an hour from take off to touch down so there wasn’t enough time for a movie. I fell asleep half way through the flight and woke up expecting to eat my snickers bar… only to find out the Flight Attendents had mistaken my bag for trash while I was sleeping! We landed in North Carolina and I along with the rest of the support staff got off the plane to help unload luggage. I also managed to snap some pics of the team coming off the plane. Here are a few of them:

As usual for an away game we headed to the visiting team stadium to let the players get a feel of the field. This gives the players a chance to show of their “skills”.

And of course I had to do the tradiational panorama shot. This time I decided to take another at the Walk Through like at the Virginia Tech Game.

    You did a great job, Blake! But, I think when you all loaded the plane the guys left something in Atlanta.
    Tough loss! Go Jackets!
