Whats Up In Denver?

Wed Nov 07, 2001 11:03 am

I got home from dinner at about 6:20, and had noticed that planes coming from DIA were turning right over my house and flying back to the airport, they were very low, so low I could see the tail logo's very clear.
The weather here is very clear and nice so It could not be a weather delay. Dose anyone know whats going on? Thanks for any info

I left work at DIA at 5pm and it was pretty quiet. I noticed flying in the other night we came in over 225 southbound on the downwind and turned left for the final. I have never done that before. Or it could be that cold front moving in tonight. Thats all I can think of.

Maybe there has been a threat at the airport......

Not sure though....I'll check the local TV stations.
