Weird...it was surrounded by lots of police cars and fire trucks at first and then the fire trucks left and it was just police cars...(maybe 8 or so with lights flashing) Just looked like an emergency but I guess it could have just been a charter. Interesting.

The first 747 came in on Wed night from MSP, spent the night, left Thursday morning with 400 veterans going to DC. It came back from IAD Thursday night, spent the night again and did the same thing Friday morning with another 400 veterans. Friday night, another 747 returned but this time in DL colors. It dropped off the 400 veterans and then repositioned to DTW. All the fire trucks were there to help load and unload the 400 veterans (many disabled) up and down the airstairs. I got tons of great photos of the DL 747 but won't be uploading anything for a few more weeks. Keep your eyes out though!
