I flew a plane last week, Delta flight 837. Well, maybe not “flew” it, but I definitely helped.
My daughter moved to Hawaii last week and flew from Atlanta to Honolulu, a nine-hour, 14-minute flight that I tracked on my computer.
For nine hours and 14 minutes I watched an airplane icon inch its way across the continent and then over the Pacific Ocean.
At one point, about an hour off the California coast, the plane on my computer screen faced east instead of west.
