We took off yesterday afternoon at 5:15 headed South (actually, we headed North to DFW first). Had a fairly uneventful flight, although a long one! Flight was smooth until we were above the Andes Mountains. The plane started shaking a little (reminded me at first of Oceanic Flight 815) & then settled down. Based on past stories of survival on a plane crash in the Andes, I was somewhat concerned that Kay & I are both well marbeled & would make tender vittles for any survivors. Things settled down & we landed at 7:24 a.m. this morning, exactly as the pilot had promised. More tomorrow!
