Returning from the Auto Show in Detroit, we experienced two mechanicals on Delta. We took advantage of our Sky Club membership, used the wifi and plane watched. Detroit has a myriad of equipment type, from the B744->A333->MD88->MD90->B777, but alas my favorite, the 757-200 and 757-300.
This particular night of a three hour delay, I began to ask the juvenile questions that I have for sometime while plane watching. @NickUK can attest to my fascination for 30 minutes staring aimlessly at the aircraft passing by.
Below is me looking out of the Sky Club viewing a 753 that had pushed back with a 752 behind it.
My question to Nick “Do you think they talk to each other?”…. Did I seriously ask that question, indeed! When I see the longer 753, I figured the 752 could chat it up.
Of course they can’t talk to one another but it will never stop me from arriving at the airport (KOA, ORD, ATL) for a very early morning flight and wishing the fleet a “Good Morning“. There is something magical about seeing the majority of an airlines fleet awaiting the day to commence. Nor when staying at a hotel overlooking the airport will I wonder where a parked plane for the night will journey to next.
