Rare Visitors to MEM


#1

Anyone here have a clue to why this AA 757 and CO 738 came to visit MEM? Some weird routings, PBI-MEM-STL and MCO-MEM-MDW. Thanks in advance for any help.

Your welcome.

NCAA charters??

Those are (were) the charter flights for the Cleveland Indians and the St. Louis Cardinals, who played in the first ever “Civil Rights Game” on Saturday in Memphis, before the Cards headed home and the Indians headed to Chicago to open their season. The flights originated in FL because the teams had been in spring training.
BTW: This discussion would fit PERFECTLY in a forum about “Notable Activity.” If only there were such a forum… :smiley:

You’re welcome. :wink:
