The Patriots have their own planes now and they look awesome

New, comments

New England's offseason keeps getting better.

The New England Patriots have had quite the busy year so far. First, the team has won its fifth Super Bowl thanks to a comeback for the ages. Then, the Patriots have become some of the biggest spenders during the offseason – building a team that could be even better than last year's championship squad.

New England then has started altering Gillette Stadium so that all of the team's five Super Bowl banners could fit in. So, what's next? Aviation, of course. According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the Patriots have become the first NFL franchise to buy its own airplanes – and they look fantastic:

According to Rovell's report, the Patriots have bought not one but two Boing 767s this offseason. Depending on the mileage and condition, one of the planes costs around $10.0 million dollars – not counting the styling or retrofitting to turn them both ninto first-class-only planes. Operations will run out of Providence, Rhode Island.
