Thursday/ home

I took the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train to San Francisco airport again, today.   (There was a terrible commuter train crash this morning at the Hoboken Terminal train station, on the New Jersey side of Manhattan.   A woman on the platform was struck by debris and killed, and some 114 passengers on the train were injured).

Check out the Amazon Prime Air cargo plane that I spotted at out arrival at Seattle airport.

Here’s Amazon’s first ‘Prime Air’ Boeing 767-300, spotted as we landed at Sea-Tac airport. The plane is operated by Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc., and one of 40 that Amazon has agreed to lease as it broadens its system for shipping and delivering goods quickly. There had been Christmases where Amazon’s delivery partners United Parcel Service Inc. and FedEx Corp. could not keep up with the deluge of parcels to deliver by Christmas Day, and Amazon is jumping into the logistics fray with its own airplanes.
