PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Steelers have returned to Pittsburgh.

Their US Airways flight landed around 3:40 p.m. at the Pittsburgh International Airport.

One of the first people off the plane was U.S. Ambassador Dan Rooney.

The trip was about a three-hour flight. Two more planes carrying the Steelers’ families and staff members also arrived this evening.

The team returns home after falling to the Green Bay Packers, 31-25 in Super Bowl XLV.

As Steelers fans came to grips with the loss, they put the best face they could on disappointment.

The Romero family of Phoenix, Ariz., never lived in Pittsburgh, but are Steelers fans. They came to town just to experience Steeler nation.

“It was quite an experience,” Gabriel Romero said. “Win or lose they’re still our team. Die-hard fans – always been, always will be.”

Chris Hoke said he wanted to thank the fans because in his words, the team couldn’t have made it to the Super Bowl without them.
