Quite the powerful storms last night. Check this diversion out:
Departs: Marquette-Marquette County, MI (MQT), Arrives: St. Cloud, MN (STC)
Scheduled: 7:38PM Scheduled:
Actual: 7:29PM Actual: 8:30PM
Departs: St. Cloud, MN (STC) Arrives: Minneapolis/St. Paul-Int'l, MN (MSP)
Scheduled: Scheduled: 8:15PM
Actual: 12:54AM Actual: 1:32AM
Note: Diversion/delay due to air traffic conditions.
That's 4 hrs and 24 mins on the ground at STC. I hope those people didnt have to sit in the Saab the whole time, but fear they probably did. I can't imagine the shape of my knees after 6 hrs in a Saab 340!
