International singing star Taylor Swift’s trip to Super Bowl LVIII is playing out just as fans predicted based on the television show “The West Wing.”
In an episode of the show, the characters from the fictional White House try to calculate when the president leaves Tokyo, Japan, and lands in Washington D.C.
One says: “He’s gonna land in Washington an hour before he took off?”
Yep, it’s going to work that way for Swift, who played a concert in Tokyo, Japan, on Saturday night. Multiple people on X (formerly Twitter) believe Swift is boarded VistaJet 993 in Tokyo at 11:36 p.m. local time on Saturday.
After traveling over the International Date Line, the plane is expected to land at Los Angeles International Airport shortly before 4 p.m. local time on Saturday. That’s according to the websites Flight Radar 24 and Flight Aware.
That would be more than 24 hours before the kickoff of Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Whether it’s by plane, train or automobile, Swift should make it in plenty of time to watch boyfriend Travis Kelce and the Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers.
It’s roughly 270 miles from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, which should be a piece of cake after she travels 5,500 miles from Japan to the United States.
X user Darren Rovell said the only tracked flight from Tokyo to the United States shortly after Swift’s concert ended is the VistaJet 993.
Jason Rabinowitz, co-host of the AvTalk Aviation podcast, wrote on X that a second jet was on hand at Tokyo’s airport in case there was an issue with the one carrying Swift.
The logistics of flying #TaylorSwift across the planet to a football game is quite a production.
I’m told @vistajet didn’t just have mechanics at HND in case anything broke, it had a whole second jet there on standby. Basically a private Air Force One. https://t.co/60XVOX2P3R pic.twitter.com/QnYo5kYD2a

“We’re all gonna go on a great adventure,” Swift told fans at the Tokyo Dome, per Sky Sports.
But none as grand as the one Swift is taking to see her beau play in the biggest sporting event in the United States.
