Terrorists moved on from passenger planes? Who knows, we may find out /shrug
regardless of destination. 9/11 scare or what? Says airline computer issues but that seems odd but I admit I'm not knowleagable about how often this occurs. Just a coincidence but what could cause them to ground ALL UPS flights? Someone suggested that airline computer issues was code for a comprimised flight. Dunno

The time posted in that came and went. It's 6:47 Zulu now. No idea, but why just UPS planes is what seems odd.
Nothing about it in the news, but I did find out 22 jump street has green lighted a 3rd movie from Sony.
Our media is on top of the important stuff as always.
That's kinda scary.
Gotta remind people to be afraid of the boogie men.
Come and gone apparently. UPS planes in the air now if you look at the sites to track what is in the air live. Probably nothing but when you see 9/11 and grounded planes seems odd.
It might have actually been for the reason they stated. Someone over at UPS Central might have fucked up but good. They do have a behemoth of a tracking system, and there may be a situation where it's easier to tell everyone "no one do fucking ANYTHING until you resort/resubmit your manifest" than it is to fix it in the morning. I mean I have no idea, but sure, maybe.
It's a strange fucking feeling to trust a government agency.

1 crippled UPS airliner being reported, some computer problems listed as the reason and the storms hitting Louisville, Kentucky. Pretty sure their ops center is based there, if they are having communication problems in the ops they will ask the FAA to ground plans until comms are restored.
Unlikely a terrorist threat.
Chicago flights stopped after fire at FAA facility - CNN.com
Busy morning today. Now it's completely dead... I imagine when I come back in to work at 10pm tonight I'll be busy as shit from the backup flood of airplanes that come later tonight. Chicago center has been completely shut off for a few hours, which obviously affects a lot more than just ORD and MDW
7am on a Saturday out of Chicago, you're probably safe probably just a delay getting out, that's a really really slow time of day anyway. They're already tunneling a "few" planes into the airports around the en route center airspace. But from what I've heard is things are going to be shut down for a while, a few days minimum, no radar, no communications equipment. They sent most of the center controllers home from the day shift. From what I read so far, this is kinda a worst case scenario of why you don't want your it guy or technicians going wacko.
Obviously the full details aren't out yet, and this is just third hand info, but basically the tl;dr is that there was arson in the server room. Or he injured himself trying to fight the fire, not sure which way this story will go.

So glad I am not traveling this weekend.
Latest I just heard was extensive damage, 2-3 weeks minimum, and most of the tracons surrounding the center don't have much extra capacity to handle the load. Hopefully you're not traveling anywhere near chicago or over Chicago, people are going to be routed around it for a long time. (Ex: south bend has like 2 radar scopes, a center might have 70 positions or more)
My flight at 2pm PST was inexplicably delayed to 2:45pm. It's pretty early for that to be rescheduled. I wonder if this is the cause. I'm sticking on the west coast though. Just flying to LAX.
They just cancelled my flight and moved me to the same flight but a day later. This piece of shit faggot cost me a day's worth of vacation. I hope they fucking execute him by throwing him into a running jet engine.
My dad worked at that center for 25 years or so, been retired about 5 years now but that shits crazy.

Thats not a punishment, thats a reward. Im going to Russia with my cousin, Country Araysar
So you're re-defecting?
Im going to Moscow to meet up with the Moscow chapter of our nonprofit charity and then heading down to Eastern Ukraine to see what we can do to help
Araysar confirmed arms dealer.
Enjoy being on the no fly list, that's probably why you got bumped back a day.
Apparently the guy got transfered from Chicago to Hawaii and was upset...really?
I don't think you're serious about going to Ukraine but if you do go to Russia or that area be careful.
lol. Ara's going to go claim some farmland.
I have heard of worse plans.
Safe journey's amigo . I hope you get your flight.
Araysar is a Russian double agent and his cover has been blown, so he's returning to the homeland.
Im actually at Owen Roberts airport right in Grand Cayman, drinking beers at the airport restaurant, waiting on my puddle jumper to go to one of the smaller islands
I knew by noon on Friday that shit was going to be down for a long time. There is a reason that those computers are in a secure area of a secure building of a secured compound with armed guards.
Grunka lunka dunkity darmed guards
Im on my way back. Will be flying into ohare at 9 pm. No cancellation yet
Big storms coming in tonight, hope you make it in.
