CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Iowa Hawkeye fans are bowl-bound Wednesday, as charter flights take off from the Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids.

“We have 240 people on the plane and about another 150 or 160 joining us down in Orlando with a land-only package,” Duane Jasper, Organizer from Travel Leaders / Destinations Unlimited. “It’s been a lot of fun this year since we missed out on a bowl game last year fans are really excited. So it’s been great to be able to kind of help them fulfill this bucket list trip,”.

Fans started to gather early this morning at the airport ahead of their flight. The charter flights were taking off around 8 a.m. There was lots of excitement in the airport with fans repping their black and gold ready to head to warmer weather.

“85 degrees and getting away from this cold weather,’ said Troy Ostwinkle.

The Hawkeyes will play against the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday in the Citrus Bowl. The game airs on TV-9 at noon.
