U2 360 Jet Sighting Newark

Hi,

 

I was on the New Jersey Turnpike on Friday, 15 October 2010, around 3PM traveling past Newark Airport when the U2 360 tour jet flew overhead.  I was just curious if anyone new why it was in town.  Was Bono in New York for the weekend?  Was the plane in for maintenance?  Could be a million different things and was just curious after being pleasantly surprised to see it fly right over the New Jersey Turnpike as it was getting ready to land.

 

Thanks,

Wayne

NHL Teams have been using the jet during non-tour times, its "day job" is an Air Canada charter jet, so it is used outside of U2, it's just still painted up. ;)
Oh . . . not quite as exciting then ohwell.gif

It would be good though if you were just taking a regular flight and that was your plane!

It's always fun having a plane land just in front of you while you are on the NJT.  The U2 jet added a bit of unexpected wowness.

 

The jet I saw was slightly smaller then the A320.  I suspect the A320 would be for the crew, etc.  The jet I saw looked more appropriate for the band and a few more to travel in luxury.  It didn't necessarily seem appropriate for a hockey team, however a little research does show that the Toronto Maple Leafs were playing the NY Rangers that night.  Would a 3 PM landing give them enough time to get to MSG and do everything they needed to do for a 7 PM start?
