Hero Delta Pilot Ignores Warnings, Flies Directly Into Irma – Look What He’s Seen Doing 51 Mins Later

Published

on

Hurricanes are pretty bad news for air travel. There’s not much that can be done when a storm blows in other than hunker down and wait it out. Anyone who has to get home when a storm is on the horizon has to act quick if they don’t want to be stuck in a strange city for an unknown period of time. Because of that, the last few flights before an airport is shut down are especially hectic, and no one knows that better than an experienced pilot.

Pilots get a lot of grief for flights gone wrong, even though much of it is out of their control and up to the elements. Any experienced flight crew understands that they walk a fine line of carrying out their objective of an on time arrival and keeping their passengers safe. Delta airlines seems to take both of those things very seriously, considering what they did right in the middle of Hurricane Irma.

With what were no doubt some pretty nervous passengers, looking to get home to friends and family, one Delta pilot took a strange path right into Hurricane Irma in order to land in Puerto Rico. What he and the crew did after that might be just as impressive because they de-boarded and re-bordered the plan and were wheels up in just 51 minutes.

Via Daily Mail:

“A daring Delta Airlines pilot dodged Hurricane Irma to land in Puerto Rico – before dropping off all the passengers and heading back to JFK in just 51 minutes. 

Hundreds of flights were canceled [sic] due to the storm, but the crew for Delta flight 431 decided they were up for the challenge. 

The plane, in order to get in one last flight to and from the island before the storm hit, flew directly from New York to San Juan, Puerto Rico, and then quickly turned around and came back.  

Both flights were able to land in their respective destinations before schedule.” 

A photo shows Delta Flight 431 as it heads towards Puerto Rico, which looked to be covered in torrential clouds and rain. Though the plane flew directly into the storm, no one was hurt and the plane landed safely 

They say that the criteria for a successful landing is any landing that you walk away from, and both the trip to and from the weather beaten island met that criteria, so job well done, Delta.
Daily Mail reported more information about the perilous journey, as well as the reactions of some of those watching the flight from social media:
“A photo shows Delta Flight 431 as it heads towards Puerto Rico, which looked to be covered in torrential clouds and rain. Though the plane flew directly into the storm, no one was hurt and the plane landed safely 

Delta had a scheduled flight from New York to San Juan, which was scheduled to leave at 8.05am. 

The flight ended up leaving just a few minutes after when it was meant to, and remarkable landed seven minutes earlier than scheduled.

Jason Rabinowitz monitored the flight on Flightradar24 and tweeted updates about the entire journey. 

Photos show the tricky path that the plane had to take to avoid the worst bits of turbulence.

The plane was then able to get the flight deplaned, boarded, and back in the air in just 51 minutes so they could get everyone back to America quickly and safely

In the flight path it’s clear that the pilots made a point to weave in between the outer bands of the storm to get to and from San Juan.

Though flight deplaning is a largely long and frustrating process, Delta said that in this case it was a walk in the park. 

The crew on this plane was able to get all passengers to the gate, deplaned, boarded for a return flight, and then off the ground in just 51 minutes.  

As Rabinowitz pointed out, it was most likely a quick turnaround once it was down on the ground so that the crew could get out of the way of the storm as quickly as possible.

The flight, Delta 303, was the last one out of the San Juan Airport on Wednesday.  It landed in New York at 4.22pm, more than 30 minutes early.

People watching Rabinowitz’s live-updates shared their nerves for the two flights, and then their relief and how impressed they were with the pilot and crew when both landed. 

One twitter user jokingly tweeted a photo of Jon Stewart anxiously eating popcorn to describe how watching the play-by-play about the flights made him feel. Another man, Tom Gutting wrote: ‘This is seriously one of the most tense, dramatic things I’ve seen on Twitter. Thanks for documenting. Unreal.’ 

Tom Gutting wrote: 'This is seriously one of the most tense, dramatic things I've seen on Twitter. Thanks for documenting. Unreal'

The storm, which has been dubbed one of the most powerful Atlantic storms in a decade, has ripped through much of the Caribbean on Wednesday. 

It is currently a category five hurricane and is not expected to slow down for multiple days. Experts believe it will hit the mainland United States before the weekend.  

So far Hurricane Irma has had winds that reach up to 185 miles per hour, and has caused serious chaos, wreckage and flooding from Barbuda to Puerto Rico. 

More than 90 percent of Barbuda has been destroyed, and 95 percent of St Martin has been destroyed. At least four people have died so far. 

And because of the intensity of the storm, the Delta pilot’s ability to navigate in the storm and get to and from Puerto Rico safely is particularly shocking. 

Patrick Smith, a pilot who runs a blog about planes told the Huffington Post that there isn’t much that is subjective regarding winds on the ground and the ability of a flight to land. 

‘There are maximum tailwind and crosswind limits that have to be observed,’ he explained. 

‘Above and beyond any hard-and-fast limits, you’ve got powerful gusts, severe turbulence, extreme precipitation or other clearly unstable conditions, no airline is going to sanction flight in those conditions.’ 

However, a Delta news release assured people that the weather conditions in San Juan were safe enough for the flights. 

The release said the flight faced ‘nine miles of visibility and light rain,’ and that ll rain was ‘well below operating limits’ for the type of plane that was being flown.”

BREAKING: Barack About To Disown Oldest Daughter After Who She’s Caught With In SICK Leaked Video

Obama is pissed & it’s worse than he thought!

Published

on

President Barack Hussein Obama’s daughter, Malia Obama, was caught on camera kissing a “mystery man” at the annual Harvard versus Yale football game tailgate party this past Saturday morning. Like father, like daughter!

A very interesting video surfaced this week showing Malia wrapping her arms around a boy and kissing him at the festivities outside the Yale Bowl. It’s not known who the man is but Malia certainly seems to be very into him.

In the video above Malia is seen wearing an oversized yellow puffer down style coat. Along with white leggings, boots and a tan bucket hat with the Harvard ‘H’ embroidered on the front of it. The “mystery man” with Malia wore a black jacket, a red long-sleeved Harvard T-shirt, black jeans and black sneakers.

Of course, this hasn’t been the first time the first daughter has made headlines.

Malia Obama Twerks At Lollapalooza: 5 Times First Daughters Have Been In The Spotlight For Wrong Reasons

Malia Obama certainly had a great time at Lollapalooza this weekend. This year, the eldest first daughter opted out of the Democratic National Convention to attend the four-day-long music festival in Chicago.

The recent high school grad came under fire Saturday when a fellow attendee took a provocative video of Obama at the Mac Miller performance. She could be seen dancing and lifting her skirt to flash the audience below

However, the video, which is still making its rounds across the internet, is certainly not the first time one of the Nation’s first daughters has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. From the Bush twins’ infamous under-age drinking scandal to Chelsea Clinton’s head-scratching comment post-9/11, here are five moments first daughters got attention for all the wrong reasons.

1. In the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, Chelsea Clinton delivered a memorable quote in an article she wrote for Talk Magazine. Clinton was a student at Oxford University in London when she delivered this controversial line, according to a New York Times article:

“Every day I encounter some sort of anti-American feeling,” Clinton wrote. “Over the summer, I thought I would seek out non-Americans as friends, just for diversity’s sake. Now I find that I want to be around Americans – people who I know are thinking about our country as much as I am.”

Although the sentiment was there, Clinton was ridiculed for the remark.

2. One of the most memorable first daughter moments was when the Bush twins, Jenna and Barbara Bush, were cited for underage drinking at a restaurant in Texas in 2001. The girls were 19-years-old and in their freshman year of college. They had attempted to purchase alcohol with false identification, according to People.com.

3. One of the most rebellious former first daughters might have been Ronald Reagan’s daughter, Patti Davis. In 1994, Davis posed in a controversial, full-frontal photo for Playboy Magazine. She also posed nude for More in 2011.

4. Julie and Tricia Nixon famously battled it out over a $19 million bequest to the late Richard Nixon’s presidential library. The two sisters had reportedly not spoken in years and were in disagreement about the oversight of the funds, which was a bequest from their father’s good friend Bebe Rebozo. Ultimately, according to a 2002 Time article, the sisters moved on and the library was able to access the funds.

5. Malia Obama once again made headlines when the then 17-year-old attended a party at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, while she was on a college tour. Social media photos surfaced showing her standing by a beer pong table complete with Solo cups, which sent the media into a firestorm. Although it was never confirmed whether the first daughter imbibed, the images shed a less-than-appealing light on the eldest first daughter.

It’s not a great idea to go after the children of presidents. I don’t personally advocate for this and it’s something both sides of the aisle should avoid. But at the same time with Malia Obama, it’s a bit satisfying considering how the former First Lady Michelle Obama was intent on telling us how to raise our own children. From what they could eat in school to even going as far as giving her unwanted advice on how to raise boys so they won’t become sexual predators like her elite Hollywood friends and former President Bill Clinton.

I feel for this poor girl. She can’t do much without everyone knowing about it. But sadly that’s just the way the ball bounces. You don’t get to live in the White House and then go off and live a normal life. Don’t take my word for it, just ask 11-year-old Barron Trump who has been called every name in the book by left-wing celebrities and mainstream media personas.

Please share if you agree being a First Child carries its own set of responsibilities….

4 Black Players Just Made SICK Ultimatum To NFL Of What They Want To Force White Fans To Do For Thanksgiving

Published

on

When most Americans turn on the television to watch a football game, the last thing they want is to be bombarded with is the political viewpoints of protesting millionaire athletes whining about their “oppression” of living in America. The NFL has a catastrophe on their hands at this point, as their protesting players are now turning away fans in droves, with their viewership down a startling 14% just since last year. But in a move steeped in complete insanity, the NFL is doubling down on their plans to alienate their vastly patriotic fan base, with the sickening change they plan to make for the month of November.

Several days ago, we brought you the incredibly disturbing story about the sick new version of protests that Seahawks player Michael Bennett started last weekend. Not satisfied with quietly protesting on the sideline while the National Anthem plays, he’s now taking his protests onto the football field and disrupting the game, where he’s now flashing a black power salute every time he sacks a white player on the field. The black power salute is a disgusting racist symbol that black supremacists have used for decades to display their supremacy over the white race. 

During the second quarter of the game against the 49ers over the weekend, Bennett celebrated tacking white quarterback Brian Hoyer by flashing the black power fist into the air. This gesture was a head nod to black supremacists around the country, where the All Black Media confirmed Bennett’s actions were a pro-Black Power gesture in the following tweet.

But unfortunately, Bennnett isn’t stopping their with his outlandish racism. He’s now demanding that all fans and the NFL comply with his anti-American and anti-cop views, with the with the ridiculous ultimatum he gave to the NFL this week.

Similarly to how the NFL dedicates an entire month to breast cancer awareness, Bennett, along with several other protesting athletes want the entire month of November to be officially recognized by the NFL’s as a month to protest America’s police officers, and the the “oppression” that blacks feel with living in in our country.

A memo sent to the NFL demanding that they turn November into an “activism awareness month” to protest police in America is being led by Seattle Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins, Eagles’ Torrey Smith and former NFL player Anquan Boldin. All these players have been very vocal with their protests all year, with Bennett swearing during preseason to continue Colin Kaepernick’s protesting “legacy.”

The memo makes ridiculous claims against America’s police officers, including the claim that police were responsible for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, even though he wasn’t shot by police officers at all, but by neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman.

But these black players are blinded by their hatred of all police officers in America, as they throw in unsubstantiated cries of racism to pressure the NFL into supporting their anti-cop views.

US Herald reported on the other incidents of blacks being killed by cops these players are attempting to use as their basis for their demands, even though many officers involved in these shootings were completely exonerated by the judicial system. They reported:

“Alton Sterling was shot by police while trying to draw his gun during a struggle with officers. The officer who shot Jordan Edwards was fired and indicted.”

“Sterling was shot by police after he attempted to pull out a gun on police officers while engaged in a struggle. The officer was indicted and fired. It may be important to note to people of all races and religions that pulling a gun on a cop may result in immediate death.”

Here’s the memo that was sent to the NFL with the ridiculous other demands they’re making.

“To be clear, we are asking for your support. We appreciate your acknowledgement on the call regarding the clear distinction between support and permission. For us, support means: bear all or part of the weight of; hold up; give assistance to, especially financially; enable to function or act.”

“We need support, collaboration and partnerships to achieve our goal of strengthening the community. There are a variety of ways for you to get involved. Similar to the model we have in place for players to get involved, there are three tiers of engagement based on your comfort level.

“To start, we appreciate your agreement on making this an immediate priority. In your words, from Protest to Progress, we need action.”

What’s even more sickening is that the NFL commissioner is siding with these cop-hating black supremacists, as Roger Goodell is now convinced that these protesters have a legitimate beef with white America and our nation’s cops.

Rather than doing his damn job as the NFL commissioner, where his duties include overseeing the ventures of the NFL and coordinating games, Goodell is now turning the NFL into a political organization. He’s now joining several anti-cop players to make a trip to the Philadelphia Police Department to investigate the police their for potential “racism,” under the guise of “taking a closer look at the inner-workings of Philadelphia’s criminal justice system.”

The NFL league has invested quite a bit of money into falsely presenting themselves as patriotic organization over the years, but it appears as though the game is finally up. NFL games have been completely hijacked by race-baiting liberals who are now using America’s favorite pastime as a disgusting platform to spew their anti-American and cop-hating antics. It’s absolutely disgusting that the commissioner of the NFL is choosing to side with these protesters, where his trip to Philadelphia speaks volumes that he in fact shares these players’ nasty anti-cop and anti-American views.

Will you still watch the NFL if they dedicated the month of November to protesting America’s police officers? Let us know in the comments below!

Trump Just Got Last Laugh, Kathy Griffin Just Denounced U.S. & Leaves The Country – Here’s Where She’s Heading

We are laughing & so will you!

Published

on

Now, this is what I call the trash taking itself out!

In what every red-blooded Patriotic American can consider a huge Thanksgiving gift, Kathy Griffin has just announced she will be leaving the United States for at least four years. And the reason is that, of course, she hates President Donald Trump.

After Griffin participated in a gruesome photo shoot which featured the so-called comedienne holding a bloody, decapitated fake head resembling President Donald Trump, not unlike her Isis counterparts. Celebrities, and prominent media figures expressed a range of responses on social media, with many criticizing the image as being in bad taste. Although Kathy Griffin has “apologized” for the gory image she created with photographer Tyler Shields, it seems both sides of the political aisle weren’t impressed by it and she has managed to bring her career to an abrupt end.

Obviously, she has wasted no time in playing the victim card and declared that at age 57 she doesn’t have a lot of time to be patient. Griffin begged people not to be “too hard” on her after claiming to be in the middle of a Hollywood blacklist and added that when she gets back home she doesn’t have one single day of paid work in front of her. Awww. poor little liberal. She pulls an awful stunt like she did and she is the poor victim. Maybe in her book, but not in the book of Americans, both on the left and right sides of the aisle.

The Huffington Post Reports:

Kathy Griffin Referred To Anderson Cooper As A ‘Spineless Heiress’

The comedian made the comment to the Daily Beast during an interview about Lisa Bloom.

Kathy Griffin isn’t pulling any punches.

On Sunday, the Daily Beast published an article in which the comedian referred to Anderson Cooper as “the Spineless Heiress.”

Griffin’s comment was part of an article about her public dispute with former attorney Lisa Bloom, who represented her after photos of Griffin posing with President Donald Trump’s “severed head” surfaced online in May.

The controversial pictures not only cost Griffin her CNN New Year’s Eve hosting gig, but also spurred Cooper, who was Griffin’s co-host and longtime friend, to condemn them on Twitter.

Cooper didn’t reach out to give Griffin a heads up about his tweet before he posted it and didn’t initially check in on Griffin after she received backlash for the photos, which hurt her feelings, New York Magazine reported.

Adding insult to injury, Cooper went on “Watch What Happens Live” in July and told host Andy Cohen that he and Griffin were “still friends.” When Cooper finally reached out to Griffin in a series of texts in August, she ended their friendship.

Cooper is the son of clothing designer Gloria Vanderbilt, who is a descendent of shipping and railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt.

He told People in 2016 that he will not inherit any of the Vanderbilt fortune, and acknowledged that he was very lucky to grow up with “great privilege.”

During Griffin’s interview with the Daily Beast, she expressed her disappointment with Bloom.

Griffin estimated that she paid the celebrity attorney $40,000 for two days of legal representation, and said that Bloom tried to pressure her into a press tour. Griffin added that a press conference she did with Bloom in June was a mess.

The comedian also tweeted at Bloom on Sunday, telling her, “Stop calling me. If you’d like to refund me the tens of thousands of $$ I wasted on your services maybe I’ll talk to you.”

Bloom — who also represented Harvey Weinstein before cutting ties with him earlier this month — told the Daily Beast that the press conference was a disaster because Griffin spoke off the cuff and did not use notes the two had worked on together. She also said she had only texted Griffin once in the past three months.

“The last time I spoke to Kathy, at a group dinner recently, she gave me a big hug, was very friendly and said everything was great between us,” Bloom said. “I had no idea there was a problem until a reporter reached out to me about this a few days ago.”

The announcement that she’s leaving the US came a few days after the has-been entertainer fainted on stage in Dublin. Because being an extreme left-wing hack must be draining work.

Glad to see both sides of the political spectrum coming together and saying she went too far. And at the age of 57, she should have known better and there is no excuse imaginable. This wasn’t just a tweet that came out in the heat of the moment. This was planned out and she had weeks, if not months, to think about what repercussions she would face for putting this picture out there.

Please share if you are happy to see her go for the at least the next 8 YEARS….
