After a week and a half in Indy, it was time to go home  Sad . Coming up to Indy I flew on Delta with a stop in Atlanta but this time it would be a non-stop flight. We (My aunt, my uncle, and I) got to the airport around 12 noon and check in at the curbside check-in which took less than 5 minutes. After that we went to the a bar to grab a few drinks before flying out. Around 1:15pm I said my goodbyes to my aunt and uncle and proceeded through security. Security at Indy didn't seem to be as tight as it was at MCO. Maybe it was a random thing! Anywho, I got throught security and headed down to my gate. When I got there I noticed a Comair CRJ sitting there and at first I thought that there had been an equipment change but when I looked at it closer I noticed it had been boarded and I guess the reason it was still there was because the couldn't find a attachment to push the plane back. Finally around 1:45 (My plane was already on the ground and waiting for the CRJ to get out of the gate) the CRJ pushed back and my plane pulled in. I thought it was pretty cool that my plane was in new colors. Around 2:05, the pilots let me come into the cockpit to look around. I some what showed off the info that I know about the 732. After about 6 minutes of talking I took my seat in 8F. We ended up not leaving the gate till around 2:18pm for what reason I have no idea. We taxied to runway 32 via taxiway Hotel, Mike, and Mike 3. We were #1 for takeoff and rocketed out of Indy. We took off heading straight and then a really hard left turn to the south! We climbed and in no time it seemed as though we were above 10,000 feet. I immediately starting filming and had already taken pictures. We climbed to flight level 330 and maintained that for what I believed the whole flight. We hit some minor turbulence over Louisville and over northern Florida. When we passed over probably Voldosta, GA, when we began our decent. After about 15 minutes we flew over Ocala then Apopka (my home town) and then turned right to turn south. We then flew over Disney. After that we made a hard left turn and were heading east. Then 2 minutes later made one more left turn to line up with runway 35. On our way in we had some awful crosswinds. We were shaking left to right up and down but it didn't bother me. Finally around 4:20 we made a graceful landing into Orlando. We turned off the runway and headed to gate 92 with Virgin Atlantic and British Airways right next to us at their gates. We got off the plane and headed to the baggage claim to claim our bags.
