AirTran's new “Brewers 1“ plane supports YMCA kids

On May 17, AirTran’s custom-painted plane with throwback Milwaukee Brewers colors and logo was unveiled at MKE. Present for the reveal and to celebrate the aircraft’s new look were Hall of Fame pitcher Rollie Fingers, mascot Bernie Brewer, the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages and AirTran, Brewers and YMCA executives among other VIP guests. Kids from the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee pulled the 120,000-lb aircraft 20 feet at the event to earn $50,000 for their summer sports program.
