Flying from Tokyo, Japan back to the U.S. to get to the Super Bowl and watch her boyfriend Travis Kelce play was very important to pop superstar Taylor Swift—so important that she apparently had a second private jet on standby.
On Saturday, a report by reported the existence of a private jet for Swift who was in Tokyo performing a series of concert. FlightRadar24A global flight tracking service aptly named “Backup Quarterback”On its website. JasonRabinowitz, co-host of FlightRadar24’s AvTalk podcast, added that private jet operator VistaJet had mechanics on standby at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport in case something went wrong.
“The logistics of flying #TaylorSwift across the planet to a football game is quite a production,” Rabinowitz Said in a Post on XTwitter was formerly known as. “I’m told @vistajet didn’t just have mechanics at HND [the Haneda Airport code] in case anything broke, it had a whole second jet there on standby. Basically, a private Air Force One.”
Rabinowitz told Gizmodo that he learned about the second jet – a Bombardier Global 6600 with the call sign VTJ968 – from friends who work in the private aviation industry. He declined to provide more details. Gizmodo reached out to Swift’s team and VistaJet for comment on the purported second jet but did not receive a response.
FlightRadar24 named the first jet VJT993 and it was a Bombardier Global 6000. “The Football Era.” But how can we be sure this was Swift’s flight? Ian Petchenik, FlightRadar24’s communications director, told Gizmodo in an email that while they couldn’t confirm whether she boarded the plane, the team had a “high degree of confidence”According to the information they received, this was her flight.
VJT993 departed Tokyo at 11:36 p.m. local time and is set to arrive in Los Angeles at 3:27 p.m. local time Saturday, giving her plenty of time to get to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl on Sunday. An average of 6,000 people monitored Swift’s 9-hour flight from Tokyo to Los Angeles on Saturday at any given moment, Petchenik said. Gizmodo reported that more than 10,000 people were watching the flight in its final hour.
As for the “Backup Quarterback,” also known as VTJ968, it appeared to take off in the opposite direction after Swift’s flight took off.
Swift’s carbon footprint would be a whole new level if a second Swift jet was on-site at Tokyo. It’s one thing to You can lend your private plane to friends or use it to go see your boyfriend, but it’s another thing entirely to have a second plane fly out just in case the first one breaks and then send it back empty.
