The New England Patriots became the first NFL team to buy their own jet.  Some teams in other leagues do own their own planes but the Patriots become the first NFL team to buy their own plane.  Not only did they buy a 767 but they bought two of them.  The planes have all first class seating.  On the tail of the plane is a reminder of their 5 Lombardi trophies.

"The rising cost of chartering flights for NFL teams makes the decision to buy a plane somewhat easier. Sources with knowledge of the deals teams have done with charter companies say the 10 round-trip flights per season can cost up to $4 million.--"Darren Rovell.

"It is expected that team-owned planes will help give athletes a leg up on the recovery process, which is one of the areas that interested the Patriots."---Darren Rovell

The Chiefs charter all their flights with United Airlines.  Maybe Clark will buy them one?  The Chiefs will face the Patriots on the opening night of the NFL season September 7th.
