A Delta Airlines flight landed in San Juan, Puerto Rico, just before Hurricane Irma impacted the island Wednesday - and got back out ahead of the storm, as well. "Following that, reopening the ports is a top priority, but we have to make sure we also do it safely".
This Delta flight raced a hurricane and made it out apparently unscathed, an wonderful feat thrilling for those with online flight trackers, and likely more nerve wracking for those with their seatbelts fastened, tray tables stowed and seats in the upright and locked position.
While Dr. Jyl was trying to get out of Irma's path, others from Sacramento were actually heading for it.
Coast Guard assets conducting overflight and port assessments include two Air Station Borinquen MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crews and Aids-to-Navigation Team San Juan 55-foot Aids-to-Navigation Boat crews.
At the time of this writing, the plane's return flight, DL302, is still 15 minutes from landing safely back in NY.
Jason Rabinowitz, an aviation fan and expert, tracked the flight's race against the storm, sharing updates, including terrifying satellite images, on Twitter.

Navarro, who came to Youngstown from Puerto Rico when he was 14, has followed some of the news coverage and believes the governor of Puerto Rico, who has declared a state of emergency, has a handle on the situation.
"You really want to fly into SJU during a category 5 hurricane, DL431?"
"Total time on ground for this 737-900ER: 52 minutes", Rabinowitz tweeted. Flight 431 arrived a minute after noon to nine miles of visibility and light rain, the airline said. "And our flight and ground crews were incredible in their effort to turn the aircraft quickly and safely so the flight could depart well before the hurricane threat".
At no point during the 3 1/2-hour flight time were the winds on the course particularly risky but conditions were "rapidly degrading" as time went on. Delta flight DL431 stayed its course, heading right at the storm.
FlightRadar24, which tracks air traffic, praised Delta for its "impressive work," explaining that the plane flew back by navigating through a narrow gap between the core of the storm and its outer band.
