The Kansas City Chiefs arrived in Miami on Sunday to prepare for Sunday’s matchup with the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 49ers.

Multiple media outlets were there as the team’s plane pulled in. We gathered some fo the photos and videos they posted on social media.

ESPN’s Adam Teicher noted the pilot waving a Chiefs flag from the cockpit window.

KCTV’s Dani Welniak posted a video of the plane pulling in.

Yahoo! Sports noted the identical Hawaiian shirts that at least eight members of the team were wearing for the flight.

Chiefs head trainer Rick Burkholder had posted a photo from the cabin before takeoff, noting the reason why the players had chosen that attire for the trip.

More than a few Twitter users had some fun with a detail in Burkholder’s photo.

A few statistical nuggets regarding Hawaiian shirts were floating around.

Oddly enough, however, the Chiefs head coach chose this particular time NOT to dress in his trademark style — which struck some on social media as hilarious.

But deliberately or not, Reid was paying tribute the team’s head coach in Super Bowl IV 50 years ago — who always wore a sharply-tailored suit in public and insisted that his players do the same.
