Hey everyone,

on Friday may 26, around 1930 local time in BOS, we were waiting for our friends to depart to LHR. we had a great observation spot, on the top level of central praking giving us clear views of the whole airport. anyhow, a follow mecar with lights flashing and all was leading a delta md90. ok, thats normal. but then, it crossed rwys 22R/4L and 22L/4R. these were the only active runways at the time. they went all the way out to the end of rwy 33L were the follow me car stayed on the rwy while the delta held short. they remained in this position close to 40 minutes. any idea what it could be? testing?

regards,
highflyer

That was most likely an aircraft going for a high power run-up. That area is the run-up area and all aircraft must be escorted by airport operations due to past runway incursions.

Also, while I don't know the weather situation (and I hope someone can clarify this), but it could have been due to a ground hold in ATL if the weather was bad down there. I've been stuck on several Delta flights all around the country that were sent to penalty boxes due to poor weather in ATL...keep in mind that 10/28 is only good for visual operations right now, so if weather was bad, it would be typical ATL still.

Quoting JCarv (Reply 1):

that was my first thought, although due to my clear view of the aircraft, nothing was "kicked up" in back of the aircraft. the holding point at 33L means that the engines are pointed over grass and then water. arguably, you could say i would see anything, but all other aircraft taxxing had some kind of wake so to speak...

if you are talking about the weather at BOS that day, it was cloudy with scattered showers. im not sure how the weather in ATL was although there were other delta flights taking off and landing as scheduled.
