Bill Parcells named it as one of the highlights of his coaching career with the Giants. The players who were a part of it have described it as a ticker-tape parade at 35,000 feet. It has become one of the legends of Giants history.
And now it will be seen.
For the first time, video footage of that team flight from San Francisco to Tampa in January 1990 to play in Super Bowl XXV will be broadcast when "Giants Chronicles" looks back at the 25th anniversary of that championship season.
The Giants had beaten the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game and without a bye week before the Super Bowl flew directly to Tampa, Florida, to begin preparing for the Bills. Before there was "wide right," there was that crazy flight.
The episode will also include memories of the Super Bowl game from those who played in it (just in time for a Giants game against the Bills!) as well as interviews and video from the reunion for that team held two weeks ago at MetLife Stadium.
It premieres Sunday at 10 a.m. on MSG Network.
