A special A321 delivery

MOBILE, Ala. – Deliveries of jetliners to airline customers is becoming routine in Mobile, but the Delta Air Lines jet picked up Thursday was a special delivery, at least for the Delta pilot. The pilot who came to get the A321 passenger jet is a Mobile native. Jared Hodge first learned to fly at what was then called Brookley Field and is now the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley, home of the Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility. He requested the assignment because the plane was built in his hometown. (Source: WKRG, 05/19/17)
