PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Super Bowl XLV is only a few days away and the Pittsburgh Steelers began their trip to Dallas Monday morning.

The US Airways charter flight took off shortly after 9:30 a.m. and landed at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport around 12:30 p.m.

Two Terrible Towels hung in the cockpit as the players boarded the plane. Just before pulling away, the pilot opened the cockpit window and waved the towel.

Many of the players boarded the plane holding video cameras to document the occasion.

Hines Ward boarded the plane sporting a cowboy hat, boots and a Texas-sized belt buckle.

Several fans showed up at the airport to cheer on the Steelers. However, one Packers fan made his way into the group wearing his cheesehead and waving a Green Bay flag.
