Just trying to envision: Imagining the plane seeking a vacant gate

That is exactly what I had to do as I sat waiting for my plane to land in Toronto.

This had been a very long flight from Ottawa to Toronto and as we landed we were told that it would take a few minutes for the pilot to find a vacant gate.

Bad weather had played havoc with our flight and we had been delayed for over three hours at Ottawa's airport and we had to wait for the storms to blow by before taking off.  Then, when we landed in Toronto, we had to wait for a free gate for the plane to be parked.

Most people sitting in window seats were looking out to see what they could see, but for me I had to use my imagination.  Not sure how close my imagination came to reality but here is what I imagined.

A gigantic plane moving slowly along a huge strip looking for some sort of parking lot.  Each parking lot is huge and in order for our plane to be able to enter the lot it has to ensure that there is no other plane there.

Everything is huge and looks so imposing but the pilot knows exactly what he is doing and we all need to be patient.
