Hubs | above Dallas, TX | September 2019
Window Seat #5 | I’ve heard that trucks haul most U.S. freight but haven’t seen real evidence for that claim until landing at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. Hundreds of rectangular distribution hubs with thousands of loading docks serving (I’m guessing) millions of semi-trucks surround the huge aviation complex. This photo shows flat-roofed warehouses dotted with air conditioners. But you can also spot dense rows of truck trailers and shipping containers that vaguely resemble the fuselage in which I fly. Ack! Like a washing machine or bag of onions, I’m cargo, too.
