Re: PHL last night -Frustrating

As was said before, delays were widespread all down the East Coast yesterday. I'm not sure what time you landed, but there was also an isolated severe thunderstorm that clipped the airport, and seeing as PHL was using the 27s for departures, any plane taking off would have been in danger.

I have a vague memory of being forced to deplane via mobile staircase in the pouring rain after a MIA-JFK leg. Stories like that are pretty standard - the 747s were falling apart.

They're both still very grainy and appear soft (especially the 75).

The grain may also be .jpeg artifacts? Try adjusting the quality in your camera menu to the largest quality available.

You're on the right track, though.
