Boston-Detroit Turkey Trot FNO


Thanksgiving is a time to count your blessings, not your carbs. On the Friday before Thanksgiving (Nov 22), Boston Virtual ARTCC and Cleveland ARTCC will be stuffing as many planes as we can into Boston Logan Airport (KBOS) and Detroit Metro Airport (KDTW). We hope to see a smorgasbord of traffic with more fixin's than Grandma's squash casserole, and there will be plenty of gravy and cranberry sauce to go around!

The feast begins at 7pm ET / 2400 Z on Friday, November 22, and is scheduled to last for 4 hours. As always, we will try our best to stick around for leftovers, as long as the turkey hasn't gotten to us yet! Bring your empty belly and a full tank of Jet-A for a night that is sure to be sweeter than pumpkin pie!
