Delta Flight Museum & Lunch at KATL!

Some shots of the queen, the 717, and the museum itself

After that I went to lunch. If you don’t know the hotel, The Renesance, is right up against runways 26R & 26L. They have a restraint right up against some maintenance and you can see the terminals and takeoffs and landing

Life can’t really get much better when your that close to an A330

Thanks for looking at my photos

This isn’t my first time to the Delta museum, maybe my fifth, but it was my first time at the restaurant

It was under maintenance, so you couldn’t look in. I have done it before though and its wild!

Could you go into the planes?

You can go inside the 747 which is AWESOME!, and inside they have a 767, The Spirit of Atlanta, that you can go in. On both aircraft the first 1/3 of the plane is seats, but the backs are seatless so you can see the inside of the plane. The 767 has a Gemini Jet model airport, which is pretty cool

Lol, I have my phone camera tilted up, so that may have something to do with it, but the MDxx series was taking off very steep

How much did it cost for 10minutes I’m guessing pretty expensive

I went to the aiport for 3 days just planespotting on the 10th floor of the renaissance and went to the flight museum and it was awesome. Hope you enjoyed it. It’s a very unique experience.
