Re: Austin Texas Aviation Thread - 2019

Saw QR729 and AA280 parked at the North Cargo when I was returning from a trip yesterday. Always great to see, but feel sorry for those who must divert and even more sorry for those who have to go through the border patrol in Austin since it's pretty small and takes forever to get baggage.
