I am currently still planning it for August 15th but I might move it. Here is the current plan:
August 15th, 2004:
11:25 AM-2:25 PM
McDonnell Douglas DC-9
7:04 PM-7:54 PM
McDonnell Douglas DC-9
9:10 PM-11:40 PM
My question is since I have nearly 5 hours for a layover what the heck should I do??? I wouldnt have this problem if I was at a major hub but FNT is small. I am 19 so I cant rent a car. Is their any FNT members that could provide me some suggestions? Or if their is any MCO/TPA/FLL/PBI members that would like to join me on this let me know!

Having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a swimming pool.....

You're about 60 miles from anything really interesting; Willow run airport in Ypsilanti is a lot of fun, with a fair number of freighters of all sizes. Lansing is about the same distance, I think--there's a regional airport there and it might be possible that Skywest or Mesaba has a puddle-jumper that'll get you back and forth--check the Delta and NW sites. Otherwise, I've heard the Chrysler Museum is cool, but I don't know if they're open on Sundays.

Try taking an earlier flight to DTW, there is much more to see there. You may catch the 747-400's and A330's before they all leave. Like the garage in MCO, DTW has a garage that has good views on the airfield. I visit MCO often. Will be there on 7/27.
There isn't much in FNT. I fly into FNT all the time, I am a FA.
By the way thanks for your business on the Redtail. Also the DC9's will be around for a little while longer, so don't be in a big rush.
