We arrived in Denver international Airport about @.5 hours before the flight and got throught the meaningless checkpoints in a breeze. We still had about 2 hours left, so we decided to sit on the little benches near Gate A 35. So we waited and waited.... I kept staring at the 2 777s UAL in councourse B. We boarded the plane with no problem and were taxied out of the gate. We increased thrust and got in line for runway 17R. When we were standing there, I saw a FEDEX DC10/MD11. We took of and had a good time in the air.
On the way back We got throught The stupidest chackpoint in my life. The metal detector detected my change in my pocket and the security guy came along and checked me with on of those handheld detectors. He told me to take the wallet out and I did, He did nothing with the wallet. HE DIDN"T EVEN OPEN THE DAMN THING! Who knows what I could've had in my wallet? I could've had a blade in there! So we went and waited about 2 hours to board and we took off! We had a lot of turbulence, but I liked it! We came to DEN in about 1HR 30min of flight and landed on runway 16 (My favorite runway) And came out and were driven home.
It was cool.
