posted by @ShelbySos - 

A Delta flight from New York's JFK airport managed to fly into San Juan, Puerto Rico, pull into the gate, and in less than an hour take off full of passengers - all while Hurricane Irma was bearing down on the island Wednesday! 

Delta flight status data show Flight 431 left JFK 8:12 a.m. and arrived in San Juan at 12:01 p.m.; Delta 302 left San Juan at 12:41 p.m. and arrived in New York at 4:22 p.m. 

Data shows the plane's flight path offered a spectacular show for aviation enthusiasts (AKA Kane) who followed in rael time as Delta Flight 431 headed south right into the dangerous storm. 

When Flight 431 arrived in San Juan, there nine miles of visibility and light rain. Winds were at around 28 mph, and gusts up to 36 mph. Flight 302 departed San Juan with 173 passengers on board.

The flight was the last one in and out of San Juan, before the air traffic control ceased operations.
