WN Flight 8641 @ MDT. Why?

Hi all,
Just was checking Flightaware for MDT (Harrisburg Int'l) and noticed WN Flight SWA8641 on the ground. What the heck is WN doing at MDT?

Flightaware shows 8641 originated December 16th, at Sawyer Int'l (KSAW) Gwinn, MI, bound for STL.

Though today it shows it on the ground at MDT,
scheduled to depart MDT at 1:05pm, 1/04/06 for MCO.

Anyone have any idea why WN is here? WN doesn't service MDT. Kind of out of the way for any kind of diversion.

Any answers would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Russ


My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

Well,
Now it seems to be gone.
Glitch at Flightaware?
Was 8641 ever there?

I'm so confused!

the 8641 flight number designation falls into the charter category of their flight numbers...

I don't have an FOM in front of me so I can't give you the exact category of this flight, but it is probably a charter* of some sort.



*if the flight actually existed at all...?
