Re: Police Chase Involving UPS Truck Ends in Shootout

The bystander killed was a very nice man. He was a field rep for the union that represents various Broward County employees including the airside operations and maintenance staff at FLL.

Re: The Embraer E190-E2 was named Project of the Year by the Project Management Institute

PR-ZIQ (Profit Hunter Circuit Livery) is at FLL right now after spending time in Toronto and Las Vegas. This is the second time they've come here to court a certain local airline.
I'm not sure how they would look in bright yellow. :scratchchin:

Norwegian takes 10L-28R for the departure about 99% of the time, so unless that runway is closed for some reason, it most likely will use it. There's obviously no guarantee. I've even seen Emirates depart on the south runway, but I can not recall when I last saw Norwegian use it for departure.
