Today around 1:00 in ATL
, a large storm hit the Hartsfield air port and caused delays up to two and a half hours. I just flew out of there. I was flying an Air Tran 717. We had just pushed back and then the storm hit. We got pounded with a huge storm, causing delays. Once the weather cleared up, the amount of planes waiting to take off was amazing. At Least 25 planes trying to take off at 8L
(i think). Air Tran 210 to Akron/Canton was about 12th. But after the hour delay it took another 2 hours to takeoff. We finally took off and the flight was a little bumpy but nothing to whine about.
Also there I saw my first 747, A KAL 747, passenger and cargo.
Other planes of mention:
South African A346
Delta Widget 767
And in order 3 MD
-88's in all Delta coulers. First the widget then the middle scheme and then the latest one.
