Welcome back to another US-CAN series.
This report consists of 4 legs to and from Central Florida. These trans-border reports are relatively short compared to my International trips and are easy point fill quota posts. This time however, instead of using AA, I opted for Delta as they offered a competitive fare at $115 one day, just 3 days before the flight.
This report sheds light on the second portion of this oneway ticket, ATL-MLB. My connection in ATL was possibly my shortest yet. As soon as I reached the T terminal boarding was just about done and I was the last on board. Due to the short time i had no chance to spot any aircraft.

The best spotting opportunity I got was that at pushback.
Up and off.
Climb-out offered as good view of KATL and south ATL.
Cruising as we crossed the FL border and right over JAX.
Our route gave took us right over Jacksonville. Below the Miami Air 737 that overran the runway can be seen. This happened a few days prior to my flight.
Today's flight flew down the coast before banking over the farm fields to join our approach. This part of Florida is pretty rural as most of the land if swampy and marsh.
MLB is a small airport about 45 minutes from MCO. As this was my intended destination city I opted to fly straight here and to avoid the Orlando commute. DL offers a 4 flights a day between the two cities as the town has numerous aerospace companies. Today's flight was 1 hour exact and service was swift. Again, I declined any snacks and just enjoyed the natural entertainment from my window seat.
