Austin, TX

I had immense difficulties on this trip avoiding planes that were on fire. While taxiing at DFW to depart for Austin, the captain calmly announced that the plane on fire out the window was nothing to be concerned about; they were conducting fire department training by setting an old plane on fire. On the return section, my DFW-DAY flight had to return to DFW due to electrical problems; we deplaned and saw that five fire trucks had followed our plane back to the gate. At least I knew they'd been trained recently.
