Huskies Charter ATA's N702TZ
The University of Washington Huskies chartered ATA Airlines' N702TZ, an ex-Northwest Airlines DC-10-30 (msn 46912) to bring their football team, cheerleaders and band to HNL, as the Huskies football team faced off against the University of Hawai‘i Warriors. The flight arrived from SEA as AMT6317.
N702TZ still wears the old NW "bowling shoe" colors with small ATA titles in the forward section. It was originally delivered to Korean Airlines as HL7316. It was taken up by Northwest in the late '90s, and registered N234NW.
The Warriors battled back to beat the Huskies 35-28, to complete a perfect 12-0 regular season, and await a BCS bowl bid.
