I’m going to take a guess that athletes at the Air Force Academy don’t have to fly coach that often since they have a fleet of aerial craft to get them to and from athletic events.
Recently, the Air Force Academy hockey team needed a lift to a couple of games in Buffalo, New York and they decided to travel in class on a C-17 aircraft.
Below is a photo tweeted out by Air Force assistant hockey coach Andy Berg showing off the players relaxing in the cargo hold during the trip:
Normally, the C-17 is used for strategic airlift and cargo drops, so I’m going to assume that the hockey team wasn’t too heavy.
