Ah, from the "Type 2" forum, it appears he'll be starting from Atlanta. A driving trip from there to Chicago doesn't bring him near you or me....

Currently, it looks like United Airways to O'Hare 1:00PM Thursday the 30th. . . IF the pilots REMEMBER to extend the flaps at take-off and the air traffic controllers are alert.

Good luck at O'Hare brother - I had a lot of issues yesterday! Flying back through there tomorrow - hopefully no more problems. Wind issues.

If the pilots drive VW buses, I shall not worry about landing in crosswinds, hell, hurricanes :flower:

Hey Colin, you are in Atlanta and you didn't tell me? Whaazzzzuppwidddaattt?
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue, I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

I ain't IN Atlanta YET. I am nursing a recalcitrant #3 sparkplug timesert here in Spartanburg. . . so much for that End Of Itinerary Compression Test ( 120/110/100/120).

If his flight was due to leave ATL at 1pm he's probably just landing now would be my guess...Whomever fetches him from O'Hare will hopefully post an update for us...
