July 2, 1999, first time I flew Spirit, from Detroit to Ft. Lauderdale for work, started out bad. We boarded late, then after we took off, problems, and had to circle back and land. So we ended up taking off in another plane 4 hours late, get into Ft. Lauderdale 4 hours late (11:30pm) and saw all passengers waiting for what was supposed to be 7:30pm flight.
Return flight, the July 4th 7:30pm flight and it's on time. About 1 1/2 hours after takeoff, the captain comes on and says 'if you want see some fireworks, just look out the windows". Turns out I'm on the left side and most of them were on the left side, saw every mid size city to little burgs that were firing off fireworks, 100's of them that night.
Coming in for landing at Metro, flying over the cities around Detroit, seemed everyone was shooting up fireworks too and aiming for the plane. Talk about the best fireworks display ever that night.
