From Sunday's Newsday:

'Big Papi' is no flight of fancy

No matter whether the Boston Red Sox reach the postseason or not,
David Ortiz is about to take off.

The Red Sox designated hitter, one of the leading candidates for the
American League MVP award, will have an airplane named after him
Tuesday by low-fare carrier Song. The plane, a Boeing 757, will be
named "Big Papi." It will be the first Song plane with a name.

The carrier, an affiliate of Delta Air Lines - the company that filed for
bankruptcy Wednesday - is christening the plane in Ortiz's honor as it
expands flights out of Logan Airport.

Ortiz, 29, a fan favorite on the defending World Series champions, has
delivered 18 game-winning hits, is batting .297 and leads the American
League with 46 home runs and 140 RBIs. - AP

Looks like a new spotting opportunity!
