Planespotting with a new friend! (KATL)

Hello IFC! Today was the final day of the Airliners International Show 2019 in Atlanta! This year was incredible! I even met some people who work for Gemini Jets! I got to take an up close look at the brand new 1:400 terminal! It’s awesome! While talking to them for about 30 minutes, I asked about upcoming models! I can’t say a ton, but if you are a fan of the 1:400 models, the new United livery, and Southwest special schemes, you may like the upcoming future with GJ’s! Now onto the planespotting! As some of you know, the Renaissance Hotel on the edge of the 26’s has a restaurant that I spot at a lot! Whilst spotting, I made a new friend. We are the same age, and are in the same grade. He however lives in Grand Rapids, but we have already texted for seven hours today so I think this long term friendship will work! We spotted at the restaurant for two hours together and then I went to a hotel right under the 26R ILS Approach.
