The view from the cockpit

When you end up sitting on an airplane for six hours (much of it on the ground), what’s going on up there in the cockpit?

A pilot/blogger at a regional airline offers a fascinating glimpse of his flight during that snowstorm a week and a half ago, full of in-air diversions and on-the-ground gridlock, security agents that go home, and passengers who can’t get food or drink.

It’s a first-hand account of just how broken the nation’s air-traffic system is.
