A friend of mine reminded me that today is the anniversary of Delta Flight 191, the L-1011 that crashed on approach to Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport in a microburst.

Here is what I wrote a year ago today. And, here is my posting, Anatomy of a Microburst, which is the second most popular posting on the blog.
