Completely made my 4th of July… After an hour-long mechanical delay in Charlotte we pushed back from the gate. As we started to roll I look across the aisle and out the window and noticed something spectacular. There on the tarmac were two “Mr. Softee” style ice cream trucks parked by the terminal building. To top it off, it looked like every US Airways mechanic had dropped his tools and run for their ice cream like little kids do on a hot summer day. On the flip side, could this have been the cause of our delay?
