Delta flight stares down Hurricane Irma and flies right through it

Category 5 Hurricane Irma is headed straight for Puerto Rico and several Caribbean Island, which has forced numerous flights to be cancelled in recent days.

However, one Delta flight scheduled from New York to San Juan wasn't cancelled, and the pilot and crew decided to make the trip anyway despite the threat of the catastrophic storm. Seriously, look what they decided to fly through:

Somehow, the flight landed seven minutes ahead of schedule. Imagine being on that plane flying right through a potentially devastating storm.

The Delta crew managed to board everyone for the return flight in 51 minutes. That's pretty impressive, and given the circumstances, those passengers were probably more anxious than usual to board the plane and get out of town.
