We had a nice takeoff out of Richmond International Airport, quickly ascending into a broken layer of clouds at about 17,000 feet. As always, GoGo in-flight wifi came on after 10,000 feet, something I quickly took advantage of!
In the video below, watch our takeoff from Richmond Airport (KRIC). This video comes from my Youtube channel MartinsAviation1:
One interesting part about this flight was that on my trip down to Orlando, portable devices were not allowed during taxi, takeoff, or landing according to the FAA (and Delta Air Lines). Flight attendants, as was normal until very recently, walked through the cabin to make sure that everyone's devices were off and stowed. Notice on my Flight Reports during our return, just a few days later, that this rule was eliminated by the FAA and quickly adopted by Delta, shifting some of the Flight Attendant's responsibilities.
