  • Connection Procedure
    Dec 13, 2015
    I will be arriving from NRT and then continuing to BOG. Will I transfer through the terminal? Or will I have to go through customs/immigration and then recollect my bags and then check them in?


    There is no sterile international transfer in the US. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. You will not have to claim your bags if both flights are on American though.


  • Drone Flying
    Dec 12, 2015
    I live in Lewisville and fly a drone sometimes right above my house. Current FAA regs state that I keep below 400 feet, which I always do. I am just outside of the 5 mile perimeter but jets fly right over my house continuously. It appears that all jets are above 500 ft. however, that still puts my flights within the FAA 500 ft. separation point at which a "near collision" could be declared. I would like to program my radio scanner (108-136Mhz) to listen to the specific approach frequency on which an incoming flight might report me to the tower so that I know when I'm being a nuisance, at which point I will immediately stop flying. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.


    If you are 5 miles from the airport the approaching aircraft are at closer to 2500 ft. AGL


  • Immigration and Customs

    My daughters flight from Sydney arrives at 1:00pm @ DFW. What is the average amount of time it takes to be processed through immigration and customs? I am trying to make arrangements for her pickup without having a lot of wait time for either of us. Thank you in advance!


    I would guesstimate 45 minutes to an hour, so she'd be out at about 1:45-2.


  • Time to allow for connection

    Arriving on Qantas at 1:45pm, go thru customs, get bags,etc...transfer to another terminal to check -in go thru security etc with American to fly to IAH departing at 4:25pm. American changed the flight times on us...is there enough time to do all this?


    You will actually re-check your bags in Terminal D where you will arrive and then take the Skylink Train to your departure terminal. You have PLENTY of time.


  • I lost my wedding and engagement rings at DFW
    Nov 9, 2014
    On November 5th between 8 and 9pm I lost my diamond wedding and engagement rings at DFW in Terminal D. Both white gold; wedding ring "eternity" style, engagement ring center diamond with two baguettes. Please contact me via this thread if you know anything about them. I'll pay appraised value for their return.
