Damn! Ops told me when I called to tell them that UA had a bagcart in the ditch between c-16 and c14 Air-Tran style and that 2 of their other carts were in the ass-end of MY plane! I was hoping one of you guys had a video. Gotta send pics to MX control then go back to airport. (ISP down) Worry ye not, Action News 5 was at corner of Swinnea and Shelby when I left, so they should be filming something by now. Also, pieces of C-5 Galaxy bldgs all over Swinnea! Hope there's no more tonite!

AO told me that 2 trees were down on Shelby, trapping 2 cars, power out on Shelby, and airfield was running on backup power for a while last nite. Seeing as how 19 people were killed in Missouri, I think we were extremely lucky.

Too bad to see any 72s get damaged. I hope they dont end up scraping her. There arent many left flying.


Bring back Western Airlines!

I guess seeing all the FedEx and the DHL 727's twice a day, I forget that there aren't many.

They are going to fix it. In addition to that one that got busted up two more 727's had to be inspected for excessive side loads incurred in that storm..I agree with Agent XE 1225 we were extremely lucky. Arkansas has for sure not been as fortunate this yr.

Indeed, people down south in general, but to a much more extreme in MEM are having a rough go this time of year.
