WATCH: Nine Ways To Pass The Time At DFW Airport

A flight delay at DFW Airport brought out the inner kid for two travelers.

DFW International Airport became a playground for two travelers in a video that has gone viral.

Two men from Birmingham, Ala. were hoping to capture a victorious dash to their connecting flight on video. But when they missed their flight, they were stranded for nine hours at DFW Airport. To pass the time, they did things they always dreamed of doing at an airport, which included wheelchair races, airport sledding, and sprinting on the moving sidewalk.

According to the video description, the duo opted out of adding music because it would “make this airport actually seem lively at night.”
