Follow JetBlue's Boston Bruins Plane as Stanley Cup Finals Begin
This evening in Boston's TD Garden, the Boston Bruins will host the St. Louis Blues as the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals begin. Meanwhile, Bear Force One will be traveling over 5,000 miles sporting the team's logo and colors. JetBlue, which operates a massive hub in Boston and serves as the official airline of the Boston Bruins, introduced its first NHL-themed livery earlier this month.
The Airbus A320 was initially used to shuttle passengers from Boston Logan International Airport to Raleigh, where the team finished off the Carolina Hurricanes and secured their place in the finals. Today, as fans stream into Beantown to witness the beginning of a rematch of the 1970 Stanley Cup Finals, AvGeeks can follow along as Bear Force One (tail number N632JB) jets from one city to the next.
The plane began its day in Boston, departing at 7:29am for an 1,121 mile trek to Orlando. It then turned right back around to Boston, pausing for an hour before venturing south once more to Savannah/Hilton Head Island. By the time it returns to Boston at 9:01pm, Game 1 of the series will be well underway.
Just prior to the last horn sounding, the aircraft will lift off for its last trip of the day — a 10:11pm departure to Santo Domingo.
You can keep an eye out on its future routes through FlightAware, but given that JetBlue doesn't offer regularly scheduled service to St. Louis, Bruins fans will need to find another carrier to attend away games.
