Oops.

This week, Carmi’s theme is “Grounded”.  I think this plane was grounded for quite a while.

2008, Moab International Airport, Terminal 43-B

Ok, it was 2008, it was the Moab airport, but the rest is a lie.  The airport is nothing even close to international, and even if the terminal is named 43-B, it’s the only one there and quite the misnomer.  And I don’t think I’ll be flying with that airline any time soon.

You forgot the rest of the story, buddy. You and I were definitely "grounded" at that airport for a couple of hours!!!!

Oops-2, I did remember the story, but I didn't even think of that connection to the theme.

Well grounded. Did you hang around to see it take off?

Max Sartin said...

Nah. We waited around for an hour and a half to see it take off. Then the locksmith showed up, got my keys out of the locked car and we left.

Max Sartin said...

Yeah, and it happens all too often to me. That's why my brother has copies of the keys to all my cars. Of course, that time I was in Moab and he was 330 miles away in Salt Lake. I would have called him, but it would have cost me more in gas for him that the locksmith.

That plane looks like the bird outside my window right now!

And people wonder why I don't like flying...

Your archives appear to be a treasure trove of great finds. Perfect for the theme and a great capture without the meme.
