Patriots reportedly bought two 767 Boeing jets for team travel

Patriots reportedly bought two 767 Boeing jets for team travel

The New England Patriots have become the first National Football League team to buy their own plane to fly to games.

In fact, New England bought two planes - with the team purchasing a pair of 767 Boeing wide-body jets in the offseason and upgrading them with all first-class seats. The outside of the plane is coated in team colors and logos and, of course, the five Lombardi trophies. A photo of the repainted plane was posted on the network's social media accounts.

It's worth noting that these planes generally cost somewhere between $5 million and $65 million, according to Rovell. Owner Robert Kraft has assured his football team will fly in style. Rising charter costs flights means that teams can spend up to $4 million a year on flights.

ESPN wrote that a Patriots spokesman declined to comment on the purchase.

The "Police Brutality" Speech In Reality
Trump's speech was about curbing the MS-13 gang in LI. "Violations of those rules are treated extremely seriously", the department wrote .


One of the planes will be the Patriots' main form of travel for the season, while the other will be a "backup" plane.

ESPN said the team's flight operations will be run out of Providence. A source said the planes the Patriots bought are extended range, which allows the planes to fly nonstop for about 12 hours.

National Football League teams haven't thought much about buying their own planes in the past, with only 10 games on the road. But what makes the planes special is the outside.

The team can also cover some of the cost by renting out the planes when not in use.
