Good luck with travel in the South East today

The FAA has closed down the world’s busiest cargo airport – and FedEx headquarters – this afternoon, Memphis International, because of an equipment failure that was preventing them from tracking planes in a 250 mile radius around the airport. Some flights are operating again now, but there were plenty of cancellations from various airlines, including NorthWest, for which MEM is a hub. At least these cancelled flights aren’t because there aren’t enough pilots.
