AC flight 142 from YVR to YYZ was diverted to MSP on Sunday. The B763 landed at 1:13pm CST and took-off again at 2:34pm CST. The icing on top of the cake is that this aircraft was in the new Air Canada livery.

Does anyone know why this aircraft was diverted to MSP? Was it due to a medical emergency? Or possibly weather in YYZ?

Interesting news, I wonder what happened. seems like a short layover, so it might have been a Medical emergency. Wish I had been there to take some shots, sure would have made my x-mas.

AHHHH!!!! I was planning to head to MSP on Sunday to see a NW DC-10 in new colors. But.... the weather wasn't good for spotting.... high winds and cold temps was part of the reason why I dint go, along with some homework that needed doing. It would have been nice to see the AC 763 anyway with or without the N/C. Personally, I don't really like the new scheme.


All flights have great IFE...get yourself a window seat, thats something no PTV can beat! flew 808 Pacific an Atlanic
