Battle Creek, MI (KBTL)

Tue Sep 06, 2005 9:30 pm

I was driving by the airport yesterday and saw two Delta 757's on the tarmac. Never saw that before. I know they were there bringing in refugees from Hurricane Katrina but does anyone know if their are more coming in? I'd like to watch some landings.

There are supposed to be a few more today, I heard there are something like 1500 inbound hurricane victims.

285 were brought in yesterday by DL.

They are coming and going from New Orleans as Andrew said. Delta seems to be very, very active in the relief flights. Good for them!
