Go Inside Patriots’ New ‘AirKraft’ Team Plane Before Maiden Voyage

At long last, the New England Patriots are set to board their “AirKraft.”

The Patriots made headlines in August when they became the first NFL franchise to purchase their own planes to fly to games.

Here’s a shot of the plane at T.F. Green Airport in Providence, R.I., where the wide-body jet will provide service to and from the Patriots’ destinations throughout the season:

Say what you will about the Patriots, but those five Lombardi Trophies on the tail are pretty awesome.
