Wavin' Flag: How the teams flew to the 2010 World Cup

| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |

In an effort to find a way to combine World Cup soccer/football into my professional life (as well as my obsession with aviation) I've put together an - almost complete - table of how 31 of 32 national teams traveled to South Africa. With the help of Apture, I've linked to details about each team and photos of the specific aircraft (if known). So there's no confusion, the teams are listed in order of their respective pots for the tournament.

A very special thanks to Gavin Werbeloff for his assistance in putting this list together. If anyone has additional details or updates to this chart, feel free to leave a comment and I'll make the change.
