FedEx Memphis Thunderstorm Blues

I have been told, Fred Smith chose Memphis for the original FedEx hub because it was a central location with minimal overnight weather impacts (little snow – hardly any fog). Unfortunately, no plan is perfect.

Here’s a link to an animation of FedEx planes flying toward the Memphis hub with a strong line of thunderstorms off to the north. I have no idea who put this together, or how, but it’s very cool.
