A man posted video of his ‘private jet’ experience when he was the only passenger on his Delta flight

 

  • A Delta passenger experienced the private jet life when he was the only customer on his flight from Aspen, Colorado, to Salt Lake City, Utah.
  • Vincent Peone posted a video to Twitter showing how personalized and surreal the whole experience was.
  • Because the FAA requires all commercial flights to follow certain procedures, the flight attendants still went through the normal welcome and safety presentations — with a few little modifications for Peone.

An international tourist died after he fell hundreds of feet into the Grand Canyon while trying to take photos on Thursday near the rim of Eagle Point, according to David Leibowitz, a spokesman for Grand Canyon West.

Jay Mausling was on a “spirit tour” of The Stanley Hotel in Colorado, which was used as a model for “The Shining,” when he snapped photos inside the 108-year-old lodge. After the trip, he saw what appeared to be a little girl in a white robe when looking through his photos. But there had been no girl in the room when he snapped the picture. “People are like, ‘You Photoshopped this,’ and I am like, ‘I don’t even know how to use my cellphone,”’ Mausling told InsideEdition.com.

Denver Vacation – Deals & Packages!

Regarded as the best place to live in the USA by U.S. News & World Report, Denver is the capital city of Colorado and an economic and cultural hub of the region. It was founded by gold diggers as a temporary settlement during Pike’s Peak Gold Rush in 1858 AD and was characterised by numerous gold mines in its stretch. Once the madness subsided, the mining sites began to disappear just as quickly as they had appeared. Later, the place became a prominent dwelling place in the state and was named Denver, and is currently the second most populated city in south-western US.
