Fri Apr-29 DEL->FRA->SEA
Having arrived at the gate with several hours to spare, Ben worked on photos and trip notes. United Airlines (Lufthansa code share) #8907 departed at 2:25 a.m. for Frankfurt. The 747-400 traveled approximately 3,812 miles in roughly 8 hours. 3 hours into the flight, Ben looked out the window and noticed the constellation Orion lying on its side, and just then a small light orange shooting star zipped past earthward.

It was a long walk around the Frankfurt airport to get to his connecting flight, and they make US-bound travelers go through security screening again. United Airlines (Lufthansa code share) #8717 departed at 9:35 a.m. for Seattle The A330-300 traveled approximately 5,108 miles in roughly 10.5 hours.

Ben arrived in Seattle at 11:00 a.m. after traveling about 21 hours. Having started the day in Delhi, his Friday 4/29/2011 lasted 24+12.5 = 36.5 hours. Because he has a Nexus card, Ben was able to use the automated kiosk at Passport Control and was in and out in six minutes!
