Unscheduled Divert From Cuba

Postby AirportDude » Thu Mar 09, 2017 8:22 am

Making light of a minor situation...

So I guess flights from Cuba are forced to go to South Dakota?!? Quite a turn-around from the 70s when all hijackings wanted to go TO Cuba!!

Looks like this chartered Air Transat A-310 from Juan Gualberto Gomez Int'l (MUVR) on its way to Calgary International (CYYC) got REALLY routed around some weather over the southern plains and had to make a fuel stop in Rapid City.

I'm thinking that I may have to add Cuba to my bucket list of places to visit before it gets spoiled by North American tourism...

Switching to advisory, squawking VFR. Good day!
