Tail of a Delta Boeing 757 Lands in Cobb County — On Purpose

I was fortunate to be invited to the open house of SunTrust Park — which is the official new baseball stadium of the Atlanta Braves starting next month — earlier today; and one of the features outside of the ballpark is the tail of a Boeing 757-232 aircraft which was once operated by Delta Air Lines.
