My brother who is a CHQ E-170 F/O was flying out to work in CLT when he saw an AA 777. It was diverted it seems due to heavy winds in RDU. He said its bad in CLT also. Here in ILM the winds seem to be 10mph ( gusting to 20mph). Anyone know for sure if the diversion was indeed due to Winds?

Flight 173 from LGW to RDU does not show it diverted to CLT, or anywhere for that matter. It arrived in Raleigh 28 minutes late, however, no mention of a diversion in FLIFO. I am not sure what is going on.

If it isn't LGW-RDU, it is probably LHR-MIA. Although I don't know if they had terrible winds or not. If there wasn't bad winds in MIA, maybe it was a Medical Emergency.

Even though the winds at RDU have been bad AA173 is shown touching down at 1620. We had gusts up to 32 mph the last I heard. Are you sure it wasn't a different flight? Maybe to DFW or MIA?


Go Wolfpack!!

Yea I just flew RSW-CLT-PHL

Landing in CLT was pretty interesting, and taking off was the same as soon as we got off the ground. The captain said PHL had 30 MPH winds with 40 MPH gusts. So another fun landing. There was no drink service because the flight was almost choppy the entire time.

I played around with flightaware. The only diversion for any AA flight from the Eastern US to London (LHR or LGW) I could find was for AA Flight 50- DFW-LGW. that diverted to Nashville. Couldn't find anything that diverted to CLT though I or flightaware could be wrong though. I can't think of any other AA 777 routes in the area that would divert to CLT.

I'm not finding any (flightaware) documented arrival into CLT today by a 777.


If landing is about "kissing" the ground, you just about raped it.

Earlier I saw AA AUS-RDU MD-82 as well as an ExpressJet Flight headed to RDU diverted to GSO. I do not understand the diversion to GSO when the gusts were presumably just as bad as in RDU.

Can anyone explain the ExpressJet and the Chautauqua Flights. Is there a glitch in Flightaware or did these flights actually occur?

Well, CHQ6350 is operated for Delta Air Lines as DL6350 CVG-RDU.



It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

The winds were vicious at RDU this afternoon. I had the family out at RDU watching planes this afternoon. The AA 777 was lined up to land, but aborted the landing (maybe about a mile out??) and over flew the airport. It tried again and landed about 15 minutes later.

I grew up in Miami and have been a plane-fanatic for as long as I can remember...heading out the airport several times a week since I could drive myself. I cannot recall as many missed approaches/aborted landings as I saw between 2pm - 445pm today. There had to be at least 20, if not more. Problems on both main runways. ExpressJet, JetBlue, DeltaConnection, Northwest (D95), American, AmericanEagle, UnitedExpress, USAirways Express (everyone but Southwest, now that I think about it) Commuter jets and mainline jets. It was wild watching the CRJ's try to make it....noses way down, slipping, then giving up. A Jet Blue arrival seemed to be doing OK, but kept floating down the runway. It had to be about 15 feet off the ground and up it went (about abeam the observation deck, if you're familiar with RDU). Delta's 4pm-ish arrival from Atlanta, a 757, aborted just over head (in aniticpation of the AA777, we moved from the observation park to a field at the approach end) and, according to flight aware, just went back to Atlanta. I thought for sure that a United 737 had a right engine strike, but he/she pulled it out just in time.

Absolutely wild.

My brother who is a CHQ E-170 F/O

CHQ does not have any E-170 in the fleet currently, it all has been transfered to Shuttle America or Republic Airlines because of the scope clause in the contract for American Connection limiting to 50 pax seat max.

Only 135,140, and 145 are in CHQ fleet.

It was pretty bad here yesterday. I live out by Raleigh East (9NC0). I didn't see a single plane come or go all afternoon. I don't think it was the winds as much as it was the gusts. There were gusts in the area at over 50K. RDU's config is 5/23's. I believe the winds were at about 290-300 all day. RDU does have 14/32, but it's way to short (3600ft) for any commercial flights (by commercial, I mean pax flights).

Hate I missed that. I was out on my scoot yesterday, I should've rolled out to RDU. Heck, I had trouble scooting with the high crosswinds!
