I live in Miami Springs, right next to MIA and this is what I've experienced so far: Planes are still taking off, but I've only seen CO and a few UPS/DHL, and also a lot of AA flights, but not in the last 10 mins.

Right now it's sunny, beautiful, not too hot, not too cold, nice fluffy white clouds until about 10 AM, then this horrible squal came through, bringing rain and wind (the edges of the hurricane). Now the fluffy white clouds and back, and it looks like a "beach" day.

Winds are at about 15 MPH, and they gust up to 40MPH every ocne in a while, during the squall MIA recorded an 80MPH gust (reported by CBS 4), and I believe it because during the squal a wind gust knocked down a small tree in my neighbor's yard (poor thing was only 2 years old!).

News is reporting 30,000 customers without power after the squal passed in Miami-Dade County alone... 12,000 in Broward. No word on Palm Beach. (just saw an AA 737 & M83 take off).

Here's to hoping the storm will at least miss the Miami- Fort Lauderdale-Palm Beach area, but even then, I firmly believe we're looking at a once-in-a-generation storm that is looking like a really good bet at present to eclipse Andrew. We're already looking at by far the largest mass evacuation in our history.

The good news is that the storm has slowed to a forward speed of 9 mph giving people a little more time to gety out.

The bad news is that the storm has slowed to a forward speed of 9 mph giviong the storm a chance to gather more strength and batter the area for a prolonged period.

I'm just west/northwest of FLL. FLL Ceased air carrier service at 10am today (Friday) although I really think it was a bit early. As for our little Cessna 402's, 3 were moved to safe (we hope) airports on Wed, and one is locked down at FPR into he hangar. I hope it's a fortified hangar since it's right in the path, but couldn't move it due to MX problems with landing gear. May Frances spare all the planes, and more importantly, all the people in her path. Be safe, all of you feeling her effects.

SegmentQuEeN,

2 in Lakeland and I think the Chief Pilot flew the other plane to Destin with one of the airline owners... I was trying to convince him to fly to key west, but the ramp here is full.. they're parking 172s in the grass!

Btw, the FPR hangar can withstand 70 mph winds... unless they took it over to Mirabella Yacht's hangar.

Chalks sent their Mallards to the panhandle... why they didn't come to Key West is beyond me... we've been out of danger & only a 50 minute flight for them!

For those who care, some airlines have decided to go the status quo at MIA, although most have canceled everything. Of the European carriers, only Lufthansa and LTU will operate today; of international American carriers, only Cayman Airways (only one flight), Aviacsa, and Santa Barbara (only one flight) are operating. United and Northwest are also operating part of their MIA schedule.

FLL is closed entirely.

According to new weather reports, the storm has slowed and is jogging west (instead of northwest) now.

The eye is about parallel to Boca Raton/Deerfield Beach... So now it's going West and not Northwest, if it continues this way, Palm Beach county will get a direct hit.

The Airport's still pretty quiet (it's an eerie thing not having the familiar hum of the jets), but the sun's shinning, there's a nice breeze, and it looks like a nice day to be at the pool!

"the news is saying we won't get much more than Tropical Storm force winds."

I guess some comfort might be taken in that, although trpical storm force winds are still a lot stronger than anything I've ever seen up here. I suppose with those winds, that will just create a serious mess as opposed to widespread devastation.

"According to new weather reports, the storm has slowed and is jogging west (instead of northwest) now."

You may want to specify what you mean by that. Do you mean the forward speed of the entire storm system, or do you mean wind velocity?? From what I've seen on the tracker, the winds are expected to reach 138 off the Bahamas, but sliw to possibly 120 by the time it makes landfall, wherever that is.

I placed my plane (a Navion naturally) and 20 other planes in a hangar at LNA (Palm Beach County Airpark - about 7 miles South of PBI) yesterday. I'm pretty nervous about such a big storm passing within 60 miles of my pride & joy. Lot's of prayers for the weather to abate.

We (British Airways) have cancelled our Orlando flights today (Friday), tomorrow and on Sunday. Monday is still up in the air. I'm taking Tuesday's Orlando out which may end up being the first flight back after the storm.

Nate,

OP flew the planes to PFN because...

EYW had NO TIE DOWNS left
EYW is at the end if it jogged south then the next hop is CUN!

From PFN we can go to MYR, SAV, MSY, ATL or whereever the storm is not going.

Thanks A.C. I should have known that but they never flew into MIA so I didn't have their code. Have they always had the OP code? I know that duplicate two-letter codes have been issued in the past but usually to airlines that would never serve the same city. Air Panama was OP when they flew into MIA. We had two DF's at MIA at one time back in the 80's, a commuter outfit named Aero Coach and Condor, the German charter carrier.

Excellent radar loop from the Melbourne radar site:

Orlando is going to start get whacked by bands pretty soon. A small band has already gone through Tampa/St. Pete. This is going to be a lonnnnng night in the middle of the state.

Actually Chalks does serve Miami from MPB (X44).

Also Nate is correct I did obtain the prized (PA) former Pan American World Airways and later Chalks code for Florida Coastal Airlines when I was setting them up with IATA and CRS's.

Haha, yeah but I put MIA, not Miami, and I can't recall Chalk's at MIA though there was a proposal many years ago to start service there.

Chalk's hasn't been at MPB for a while according to an article I read recently in the South Florida Business Journal and the lease may be terminated later this month.

Actually a Chalks subsidary called Paradise Island Airlines used to operate from MIA.

Also the article is a bit tainted. It turns out Miami has been trying to get the property back for the WTA but they also did nothing about the helicopter problems. They also killed their own argument when the lobbied the FAA to give the helo operator the same radio frequency as Chalks Operations.

Now The DOT stepped in and grounded all helo flights and Chalks is set to resume service to Watson Island within the next week to ten days. The helo operator and Coast Guard issues had kept Chalks from operating. Something Miami's city council knew and were doing nothing about.
