You’d think they’d wait until the runway was poured.
EPCOT CENTER ATC CENTER, FL — Less than one hour after we announced the opening of a new airport at Walt Disney World Resort and Spa, the first flights arrived at the airport.
Several eagle-eyed readers called us to let us know that a flight of six aircraft passed over Epcot, on their way to land at the new airport!
They aren’t 737s, so we know it’s not Southwest
We are not sure which airline made the inaugural landings, but upon close investigation, it appears the aircraft are F/A-18 Hornets, manufactured by McDonnell Douglas, painted in a blue and yellow color scheme.
They can’t fit a family of four in an F/A-18, can they? Comment below!
