Tour Jet - Zip Code

Greensboro News and Record has an article and photos today on the tour plane the Stones are switching to this week. Guess they had to wait for Neil Diamond to finish his tour.
Found the instructions on how to paste photos but not sure it's the same for pasting articles so maybe someone can paste for us.

Kinda strange and perhaps a bit telling seeing Mick all alone by the plane. Kinda prefer to see the band together on shots like this..

The picture was actually tweeted by Mick and then shared on RS' Media .... [Twitter.com] .

Forgetting about the LZ Starship (a 717) the two RS planes above are not the same plane. Look closely at the pics and where the tongue is. The picture below is the plane they used in 2013 (hint, part of the tail number is on the gear door).

No, this picture is from March 16, 2014 and was taken in Perth, Australia during the 1st leg of the '14 on Fire' Tour: [www.iorr.org] .



What Naturalust meant was that he would rather see the Stones completely in front of the Tour Jet instead of Mick alone ....

It was also used in 2013 in North America. It's the ZS-DJI plane. That plane is not the one they are currently using. When they left San Diego for Columbus I tracked them.

They are at the motel 6 by the freeway. Just drive by. If you see that they left the light on for you, you found them. I hear they sit by the pool all day. Must be why that patio ain't dry.

Yeah that's what I meant. It's obviously not the same plane as the last tour.

Wonder who makes that huge tongue logo for them? Would take some pretty big equipment to pull that off.

And speaking of the tongue, I know its a RS brand and all but it's losing it's charm for me with a bit too much overuse. There was a time when it was cool and hip but millions of t-shirts and hundreds of variations later I kinda feel like it's being crammed down my throat. (pun intended). Like the set list, time to mix it up a bit, imo, and I don't just mean another tour poster with some clever local icon integrated on the tongue.

It was made (by Solo Graphic) in parts and then merged:

Being from TN, I'm supposed to hate the Florida Gators but I must say, I do like that story about them using the Stones plane to get to the college world series. Interesting to learn that, although the logo stays on, it's only "the Stones plane" on the dates that they use it. Not knowing anything about that industry, I assumed that it was "theirs" from the time they picked it up at the beginning of the tour until the time they returned it at the end. Hope nothing falls out of anyone's pockets that could get anyone in trouble!

Peace,
Mr DJA

From this article:



"Florida baseball takes the Rolling Stones' jet to get to College World Series

The Stones played at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta on Tuesday night, and flew to Orlando early Wednesday for their show Friday night at the Citrus Bowl. They don’t play again until next Wednesday in Nashville, so with a weekend off in Florida, the plane was bid out for other charter flights.

The NCAA, in conjunction with an independent charter travel company, arranges flights for the eight schools and their traveling parties to get to Omaha. As it turns out, the Stones’ plane matched Florida’s criteria, was close by and most importantly, available.

What a cool story...but what a mistake for that team.
They have just sealed a deal with the devil.

I imagine those kids will NEVER win the next baseball game.

They'll come stumbling, crawling and crying out off that plane.
Exhausted, bled dry, hallucinating and begging for mercy.
No one can keep up with the Stones on their private jet. No one.
Just ask MT.
If you can find him.
