If you know me you know I’m a huge Eagles fan. Born and raised in South Philadelphia I’ve been waiting for this my whole life — albeit not as long as some old timers! It’s truly an exciting time in Philly.

After the Super Bowl, the Eagles team departed on American flight #9475, an Airbus A330-200, from Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Philadelphia (PHL):

Seeing as there was no shot I was going in to work after the parade, I went to Philly airport to welcome the Champs home. As you can imagine the atmosphere was electric. The fans weren’t the only ones with a little extra pep in their step, though. Listen below for the full audio of Philadelphia Air Traffic Control clearing the Super Bowl Champs for landing, and telling a small regional jet in front of them to hurry up.

Simply amazing. E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES!
