The Air Force Academy varsity athletes have to be some of the few that hardly ever fly commercially when going to play games, and it must save them a fortune.
When Air Force came to Ann Arbor to play football earlier this year, I met some of the cadets that were at the Academy and they showed me a photo of them also flying on a C-17 to the game. I guess when you have plenty of aircrafts on your campus, you might as well utilize them.
