I bet many of you don’t realize all the neat stuff that happens at the Rockford Airport.
Today the Kent State Golden Flashes from Ohio were playing the Northern Illinois University (NIU) football team at the NIU stadium in Dekalb.
Northern Illinois University football team won the game! Congrats to them!
They are now 3-2 for their season record.
The Kent State Golden Flashes football team departed the stadium via buses and are headed to the Rockford Airport (KRFD) to head back home.
Flight Information From Flightaware
They are flying on the Boeing 737 from Miami Air International 302 (BSK302 / LL302)
The NIU and the NIU opponents always fly out of the Rockford Airport. They usually use the Miami Air as their airline.
The college football teams use the charter planes (Miami Air International) and fly them in and out of the Rockford Airport for every game.
NIU uses the Rockford Airport to fly to them and their opponents to the college football games.
They charter the teams in via a couple of chartered buses from the airport to Dekalb and vice versa.
Something the Rockford Airport doesn’t make public, but is pretty much public knowledge.
