Alaskan Patriots Fan Spots Team Plane on Mercy Mission
Not only do we have hardcore Patriots fans here in New England, but there is at least one all the way over in Alaska, too.
Norm Odsather of Anchorage, Alaska posted these pics on his Facebook page and says, "The Patriots team plane came in to Anchorage today on its way back from Asia with medical supplies. They were putting it to bed for the crew to get rest for the final leg back to Massachusetts tomorrow morning. At least I would assume Massachusetts as that is home for the Patriots. They had a Cold Buster (aircraft heater) hooked up to keep the correct temperature for the medical supplies and a large dial thermometer in each of the front windshields to be able to see from outside the plane that the temperature is being maintained inside to keep the precious supplies safe."
"I cheer and support the Patriots in doing a huge civic duty to help in a horrible time with so much bad scary news floating out there. And as a fan living in Alaska, I'm a little bit more proud than most."
Not only is Robert Kraft and his family helping in the fight with COVID-19 but they are also sending well wishes to all of our front line hospital workers.
There's a great article at Newsweek about how the New England Patriots official team plane is transporting much-needed medical supplies from China. The plane is en route to Boston and is expected to land at Logan Airport sometime today.
