The storm approaches

Ever wonder what the air traffic is doing when a major thunderstorm is approaching an airport? Wonder no more, watch what happens in Memphis, Tn to the inbound purple fleet as a mean thunderstorm sweeps in from the north.

Each little airplane could be a 727/A310/A300/MD-10/MD-11.
Watch the last ones in to the south bug out for Little Rock and more fuel as the storm closes the airport.

    That is amazing to watch! Reminded me of the FAA interactive video of the air traffic at the time of 9/11 and then hours later – it was said to be remarkable that they could get so many down in so short a time.
