Atlanta’s airport disaster sounds aviation alarm bell

Written by on December 26, 2017

When the lights went out at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Sunday, Dec. 20, 2017, darkness fell quickly over the world of commercial aviation. It was more than just scary. It was crippling. In Atlanta alone, more than 1,500 flights were canceled over the following two days. Thousands of travelers found themselves stranded in darkened terminals and stuck on grounded planes at the self-proclaimed “world’s busiest airport.” Vacations were scrapped, reunions missed. Millions of dollars in revenue lost. HowStuffWorks
