Frontier Airlines’ (2nd) (Denver) captain Gerhard Bradner is a hero to everyone on board a weather delayed Airbus A320. Flight 719 was bound from Washington (Reagan National) to the Denver hub on Monday night when heavy thunderstorms in the Denver area diverted the flight to Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Well done Captain Bradner.
