Welcome to Philadelphia on this cold February morning! Check out all the beautiful snow and clear skies! It was great sitting at the back of the airplane and watching the flaps extend! Watch as we approach from the east, pass over the Delaware River and land on Runway 27R! Excellent reverse thrust can be heard from those powerful CFM engines! The flight was a red eye and went quite smoothly once we got airborne! The flight attendants were professional as always! Filmed from the Economy Class Cabin on board United Airlines!

U.S. Airways Flight 1720 with 149 people on board and five crew members had its nose gear collapse during take off at the Philadelphia International Airport on Thursday evening. The incident forced the pilot of the flight bound to Florida to make an emergency landing as the plane was taking off. The plane crashed onto the tarmac and passengers evacuated the aircraft at around 6:30 p.m. local time using emergency slides. "The plane went up, came back down a little bit the first time, then didn't think much of it," one of the passengers was quoted as saying by CBS News. "[It] went up the second time, and then kind of felt loose and went straight back into the ground," he said. Two minor injuries were reported but no one was seriously hurt in the accident. Passengers were relocated to another terminal, Reuters reported. Operations at the airport were halted and the runaway where the incident occurred closed. Other three runaways that were closed immediately after the crash were later re-opened. U.S. Airways is owned by American Airlines Group Inc.
On my friend's @wirelessness flight from SFO to Mexico, some kinda scuffle broke out where an individual with a "plaid shirt and a camo cap" said something racist (about being "glad to have kept his guns") to an African American lady, and she began to cry and freak out. They separated the two of them, and then the Captain of the flight got on the PA and made this announcement. Added on 11/15: Just a few things I wanted to add: 1) The individual that said what was said to the African American lady DID apologize to her after the crew separated them on the flight. 2) The pilot specifically asked if no one would talk about Trump for the duration of the flight. 3) Right after he said that, my friend started to record this video.
