Any word on when its departing?

The Rangers are in town to play the Yanks tonight through Sunday, so most likely sometime Sunday evening - it's a 12:05 pm start for Sunday's game, so figure a couple of hours after the game ends.

Thanks Moose...I'm gonna have to stay on top of this one for sure. Come Sunday, I guess I'll have to go out to LGA in the afternoon and just wait!

So it dropped the team off at Newark, and then ferried to La Guardia for parking? Or is it doing other work while the team is here?

The Friday nite game started at 1905, the 727 landed about 1600, seems like that's cutting it a little close, usally the visiting team arrive the day/nite before.

As far as Sunday usally a team charter departs 2 to 2 1/2 hours after the game ends.

And for anyone who does not know this bird here she is and notice how clean she is

and here she is a few days after I rode on her MIA-TPA-MIA for AA's last 727

Is the Sunday game a day game? If so, and if we assume that the Rangers would fly out of LGA, that'd put the ETD from LGA somewhere in the "ballpark" of 6:00-7:00pm, right? Any chance it will leave earlier to ferry back to EWR?

The Sunday game is a 1305 start so I would expect an approx 1800-1830 departure unless there are extra innings. Monday is a travel day for the Rangers, they play Tuesday in CLE so a short takeoff roll to CLE is likely.

I assume the team was dropped off at EWR as many visiting teams stay at Hotels in NJ, as LGA is a much shorter drive from Yankee Stadium than EWR I'm betting on a LGA departure. I will be at work 1300-2130 on Sunday and I will update this thread if there is any news on Sunday.

It's 1730 lcl and the game is in the 7th inning so so far I would guess about a 1930-2000 lcl departure.

Given the crappy weather, I'm gonna pass on shooting the departure. One of these days I'll get a nice 727 shot at LGA. :)

BTW, what is the active departure runway, Ron?

LGA is still departing 13, after the Thunderstorm passed some departures where making a hard left turn over Phil D's house right after departure. During the storm quite a few go-arounds on 22 due to wind sheer and microbursts on final, gusts to 60, scarey stuff !

Game ended about 1755 lcl Yankess won expect about a 2000 departure.

Well the 727 with the Texas Rangers onboard made a nice long and loud departure off Rwy 31 at 2335 Lcl, after a horrible weather/ATC night at LGA, she departed behind Frontier to DEN who was running about 6 hours late and behind the 727 was US 173 to PIT only 5 1/2 hours late. I think the weather magnified the sound effects, the 727 was so loud, I said to Matt C as she took off, "now that's the way an airplane is supposed to sound", she used about 6000 feet of runway to get airbourne for the long flight to CLE !
