That's my home airport. It's always interesting to see nationally recognized commotion in my humble little hub.

Aaron is your brother based in SDF?

Someone is based where I live? Cool.

Congrats on the safe landing, definitely.

And that's crazy about shooting that when you were up here in that snow, Brandon.

Thanks lol. When I read the tail number I was like that sounds to familiar. IIRC I think I hit that bird in ANC.

Am I the only one who knew this? Although last I heard, Aaron's brother was flying... 767s? I don't remember but I think he was moving to the 744.
Very glad that he's ok!!!
