We had a pretty amazing taxi and departure through the sunrise fog for our first leg of two to Honolulu.

Here is a video of the takeoff from RIC:


Flying South to Atlanta on a 757 at sunrise was amazing, something I don’t normally get to experience! Below are photos from our flight:

After a quick flight and snack, we made our descent in ATL.

Below is a video of our landing in Atlanta:

I was pretty excited at this point for my first ever flight on a Delta A333 (to Honolulu)! Check back soon for more posts about our trip out to Hawaii.
