An Inside Look at the Delta Flight That Narrowly Missed Hurricane Irma





The last flight to take off from San Juan, Puerto Rico as Hurricane Irma approached was three and a half hours of pure tension, as the jet rushed to beat the storm. Radar images show Delta flight 302 flying a narrow corridor Wednesday, as Hurricane Irma loomed like a monster. “I covered my head and my ears,” passenger Sheila Sellers told Inside Edition. Video was taken from onboard right after the plane took off. “On a scale of 1 to 10 on that flight, I would say I was 11,” Sellers added.

  1. Omg my dad flew delta back home when he evacuated to Missouri when he was on a vacation with his parents and he got home safely and my dads parents survived and nothing got destroyed

  2. I was in the flight, I was scared that I was gonna die! Then, these winds came and I was screaming and yelling saying “SAVE ME LEGEND XXXTENTACTION” I then calmed down by listening to xxxtentaction music. It was scary

    (I am ate ik, I just remembered my flight story history :/)

    Also rip xxtentaction 🙁

  3. Wow, a flight where nothing happened. Talking about real news, about you don't push over-dramatic bs that makes people continuesly lose trust in any form of "news media".

  4. How is it heroic? The pilot only needed to fly through that part of the hurricane until he reached the top of the hurricane once they reach cruising altitude (40,000+ feet depending on what the ATC tells the pilot to cruise at) the storm would of been too far down to affect the flight.

  5. Guy was probably a pilot who used to be in the Air Force or other service as a pilot. They cannot be rattled and they have all the tricks of avoiding things that mainstream pilots might not know? I'm an Air Force brat and I saw stuff these pilots would do, like on a C140 clunker, like champs. Having been on one of those and narrowly missed an unscheduled flight coming out of Viet Nam, it was impressive how the pilots handled the plane and got us there alive!
