Flyin… [part two] http://www.brandonbrubaker.com/?p=332 http://www.brandonbrubaker.com/?p=332#respond Mon, 28 Jun 2010 23:40:23 +0000 http://www.brandonbrubaker.com/?p=332 This is a continuation from “Flyin… [part one]”. Please see part one for beginning.

.
Well I was onboard and we were pushing back from the gate at 5:10. I did have a good flight into Roanoke. Wow, the humidity is atrocious! 95 degrees temp with 54% humidity.

.
Once on the ground I contacted my ride and they showed up shortly after.

Flyin… [part one] http://www.brandonbrubaker.com/?p=318 http://www.brandonbrubaker.com/?p=318#respond Fri, 25 Jun 2010 12:38:55 +0000 http://www.brandonbrubaker.com/?p=318 I made it onboard with about 19 minutes to spare! At 5:00 o’clock the line waiting through security was close to 200+ people. My flight is scheduled to LEAVE at 6! As I approach my gate they call my group number and I walk right onto the plane.

.
I’ll update more as my day progresses…

.
Flight was really smooth and we touched down in Chicago 20 minutes earlier than scheduled. I sat next to a younger girl who, after talking to her, is having quite the trip. She flew in to San Francisco from Haleakalā, Hawaii (or something like that, I could hardly understand her). She said, in a very heavy German accent, that she was “there for a conference”. She was flying from San Francisco to Chicago and from there heading to Frankfurt. Finally leaving Frankfurt and ending back in Austria.

.
Now me being the friendly person that I am; I didn’t even ask what her name was or if she even LIVED in Austria! Although by the way she talked, I wouldn’t for once doubt the response of what that question would produce.

.
Ok, back in Chicago, I get into the terminal (around 11:58am) to find that my flight has been delayed; how convenient. Instead of leaving at the scheduled departure of 2:18pm it now says 3:16pm.

.
When I checked in online last night the website said that I was, “…unavailable to print my boarding passes at this time.” The kiosk at SFO somehow conveniently could only print my SFO to ORD boarding pass! With this in mind I needed to talk with a ticket agent here in Chicago to get my boarding pass for leg number two. He informed me that yes I was delayed but could print my ticket. Well, not completely a dead end trip.

.
Fast forward from 12:30pm to about 3:00pm in the afternoon. Something to do with the currently scheduled gate being used we are now rerouted back to Concourse C.

.
[begin microphone voice]”United flight #5728 departing to Roanoke is scheduled to leave at 4:17pm….,”[end microphone voice] WHAT…, 4:17?!! Now the word is that this plane was just leaving Memphis and has been behind all day.

.
This is the latest news I have now, and I’m holding my breath that I don’t get delayed longer. My layover is now going on 4hrs….

.
Oh, wait for it……..

.
Wait….

.
Here it is, 4:45 now.

.
Just kidding I was wrong. It’s actually 5:00

.
Delay reasons: Operations

.
END OF PART ONE SEE PART TWO FOR CONTINUATION.

Where was I? http://www.brandonbrubaker.com/?p=290 http://www.brandonbrubaker.com/?p=290#respond Sun, 16 May 2010 01:17:55 +0000 http://www.brandonbrubaker.com/?p=290 This is part of my little game. It’s called “Mystery Spot”. I upload a photo that I have taken with my iPhone. Your job is to guess “where was I”, when I took the picture!

I can give hints to help pinpoint the tough ones.

I guess this one is not too hard as the location is identified within the photo! Well now you have to guess the city I was in…

Because of it’s sleek profile, the radar cross-section of a B-1B bomber is one hundred times smaller than that of the B-52..

#2 –
B2 Stealth Bomber; One of the most important steps is the application of a special paint that absorbs radar waves, allowing the plane to go undetected…
