    Flights canceled because of hurricane

    Flights already are being canceled to Columbia Metropolitan Airport and other East Coast airports as airlines began to brace for Hurricane Irene, which is barreling toward North Carolina. Two flights to Columbia – from Washington and New York – were canceled Thursday night, an airport spokeswoman said. And hundreds more flights – to the Midlands and elsewhere – are likely to be grounded, creating delays that could ripple across the country. Airlines said passengers could rebook trips to many East Coast destinations, from Boston to the Carolinas, for free. Even before Irene’s arrival, unrelated thunderstorms were causing delays of up to two hours Thursday at major airports in the New York and Washington areas, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware. The service’s CEO, Daniel Baker, predicted that Irene-related cancellations would pick up today and Saturday.

    Hurricane Irene stalks U.S. coast, clears the Bahamas

    CNN) -- Hurricane Irene was in open water north of the Bahamas early Friday with its eye clearly set on the U.S. East Coast after rampaging along the 500-mile island chain. Irene, packing 115 mph winds, must now churn through hundreds of miles of the Atlantic before an expected landfall in North Carolina on Saturday, the National Hurricane Center said.

    Yes I was reading about Irenes progress this morning, JFK could be in for a rough time, consequently having flight delays over here at our airports.
    If the news can put Libya off the top spot for a day, perhaps they will concentrate on the Hurricane.

    Irene's Done in NYC, but Air Travel Still Stalled

    Aug 28 2011 12:53pm EDT
    Now that Irene has made her way through New York City and batters New England, here's a quick rundown of the state of play for airports and air travel.
    All five New York airports run by the Port Authority—John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia, Newark, Stewart and Teterboro—will remain closed. Long Island/McArthur will be closed. Philadelphia will stay closed until at least 4pm Sunday. Other airports—Hartford, Boston/Logan, Providence/T.F.Green, Manchester/Boston Regional—will be as good as closed. The Boston area rapid transit system will be mostly closed.

    Well it looks as though they are in for a rough weekend across the pond.
    Lets all give them a bit of thought and just hope there are no injuries or deaths.

    Property can be rebuilt, Planes , trains and buses can be replaced...but not so with human life.

    Rocker to pilot 'hurricane' flight

    Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson will pilot one of the first flights out of New York following Hurricane Irene, his spokesman said.The rocker, who has had a pilot's licence for years, regularly flies for charter airline Astraeus.
    He will fly around 200 passengers from Newark, New Jersey to Reykjavik for budget airline Iceland Express.
    The Boeing 757 will be painted in Iron Maiden colours as it is the same plane used by the band during their seven-month world tour, which ended just over three weeks ago.
