Is there anyone else out there that was on or is familiar with the hijacked Patriots charter flight in January, 1986? No I am not making this stuff up. This took place on the Monday after Super Bowl XX in New Orleans. Crimson Travel had a charter flight leaving that evening which was delayed because of a hijacking threat. S.W.A.T. teams surrounded the plane and a Patriots fan was arrested for making threatening comments. I'm really curious to find other Pats fans who were on that flight or knew of someone who was. It was most certainly an unforgettable event, after hours of an exhaustive bomb search the plane departed the following morning, only to experience a free-fall on take off. I was on that flight. If anyone is familar with this incident, please direct them to our fan website, www.MurphysPatriots.com to contact me, or respond to this thread. I'm interested in getting other accounts of the day.
