We were told that they were filling the plane to its full fuel capacity in case we had to circle prior to landing. We sat there long enough that they had to topped off the plane with fuel again and still we waited. I think we were on the plane for an hour before we took off. Easily one of the worst flights that I have ever been on. Really rough takeoff, really rough landing and at one point I started to develop a good case of motion sickness, fortunately it passed without incident.
So instead of getting to explore the addition to the Reaper Facility I ended up spending why to much time in the airport and didn't get to my room till about midnight.
So a few pictures from yesterday's adventures! Hopefully I'll actually get to Reaper today!

|Security lines are usually shorter if you walk over to Concourse A instead of taking the train. That first Frontier jet at the left is at the gate I should have left from. I think the jet you see there was heading for Durango.|
|Lousy weather but still flying. Only flights to the Dallas area were actually delayed or cancelled from Denver.|
