Delta Outage Left a ‘Hole in the Sky’

The enormous impact of Delta’s system outage was apparent on flight radar as a busy day in the skies came to a virtual standstill.

Flightradar24, a Stockholm, Sweden-based company that tracks the 14,000 or so flights in the air at any given moment, showed what the Delta outage looked like over the United States Monday morning.

As Delta canceled or delayed more flights, the airline appeared to have no planes in the sky around 8:15 a.m. EST Monday morning, Petchenik, spokesman for Flightradar24, told NBC News.

As the airline tries to reset after the outage, another 530 flights were canceled by Tuesday afternoon.
