Hey guys,

I haven't seen this discussed but i was just checking through the track log for delta flight 18 and i see on July 4th it diverted to JFK.

Does anyone know the possible reason to this?

Thanks!  http://uk.flightaware.com/live/fligh...8/history/20120704/0220Z/KDTW/EGLL

Mechanical.

It was scheduled to leave DTW at 10:20pm on the 3rd but was initially delayed due to an issue with the number 2 engine. It ended up leaving at 1:42am on the 4th and subsequently diverted to JFK because of a different issue with an airspeed indicator. There was an equipment change and the crew was replaced. The flight left JFK at 7:56am and arrived in LHR about 9 hours late.

Unbelievable turn of events on this flight. 9 hours delay is long.
