DL201 JNB-ATL 9JAN13 had an oil pressure issue and shut down the associated engine thus diverting to RAF Ascension Island/Wideawake Airbase/Georgetown, Saint Helena (ASI/FHAW). They landed around 8:25pm Eastern time, (1:25am local), even though, at this writing, FlightAware is still showing DL201 in the air about 5 hours from ATL due to the tracking being in estimated mode. This is a quick shot of ship 7103 to be the rescue aircraft as DL9978 is being prepared for the journey. They were scheduled to depart ATL at 11pm local but now shows a 1:30am estimated departure. Would be interesting to see two DL tripple 7's at that location.
