I spent a week during July out in Boulder, Colorado with the Boldmethod guys working on content for this year’s Oshkosh Air Venture 2014.

Delta Flight 1916 Information:

  • Flight: Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport (ATL) to Denver International Airport (DEN)
  • Flight Time: 3 Hours 10 Minutes
  • Aircraft: Boeing 737-900ER (N802DN)
  • Seat: 27A (economy, window)

This was my first flight onboard a brand new Delta Air Lines 737-900ER. Every plane is fitted with a Boeing Sky Interior, with new IFE at each seat. I hadn’t ever flown on a plane with the new “Sky Interior,” so this was a cool experience (and very comfortable!).

Here is a video of our takeoff from Atlanta:

Below are photos from the flight:

I set up ForeFlight and FlightRadar24 with my external GPS for the flight, and used wifi to load sectional maps along our route. It was really cool to look out the window and see exactly what we were flying over!

Descending into Denver was bumpy but not too bad. With all of the hills, mountains, and warm summer air, it was expected!

Below is a video from our landing in Denver. (Note the high approach speed – due in part to the high elevation):

I was happy to be in Colorado for the first time!

Thanks for reading and watching,
