A friend of mine is a CBP officer at CMH. He called me today and told me that a NW flight from Cancun to Detroit diverted to CMH last night (thursday) due to a hydraulic failure at about 7:30pm. CMH customs closes at 5pm and my friend and 3 other officers and a supervisor had to come back to the airport to clear the passengers who were then put on a new plane that was ferried in. They were notified while the plane was on approach and arrived shortly after it landed. The TSA kept the checkpoint open late to accommodate everyone who was taking the recovery flight to DTW. Only 65 pax plus 5 crew and everything was done by 10pm or so. I looked it up on flightaware, but couldn't find anything. I think it was an A320. Any one have any more info? I don't know if the plane is still at CMH or not. Thanks

Thanks for the info. Does anyone know what happened to the A320? Still in CMH?

I wondered why there was a NW jet parked over on the C concorse... I thought they moved for a second, but when I was sitting on my Md80 over on the B gates I saw that they hadn't.... so confused.. ahh well all has been explained
