I know some people probably will not care about this post except those die hard U of M fans, but I just had the pleasure to look at and take pictures of U of M's jet up close and personal. I work for Pratt & Whitney in Bridgeport, West Virginia. Yeah, imagine that! The plane is in our facility for an (IBR) inspection. Very nice looking plane although I thought the blue would have been darker. I took plenty of pictures with my cell phone to mark the occasion. I have had the pleasure only once to go to a game at the ‘Big House’ prior to the renovation so anything Michigan is a bonus for me. In the process, I'm taking a lot of flak (as usual) about it being here. And of course, certain people would like to vandalize it. Will they ever let it go….Guys in the hanger say Rich Rod flew in to visit family but I can not confirm it. His family is less than 30 minutes from here so it would be plausible. Does anyone know if he is in Ann Arbor today? Just thought it was pretty cool to actually see other than in pictures on the internet. Go Blue!
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
