Delta Airlines plane flies into Hurricane

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Saturday, September 9, 2017

While many people flee from the path of Hurricane Irma, a Delta Airlines plane headed toward the storm.

The pilot made a harrowing landing on Puerto Rico in San Juan.

Once it landed, the plane was loaded with 170 people and was gone again in 40 minutes.

The airline described conditions as “well below operating limits” for the aircraft when it arrived. 

That Delta flight was the last one off the island right before it was slammed by the massive category 5 Irma.

The flight arrived safely at New York’s JFK airport.
