On December 13th, a CR2 from MSP to IDA was diverted right over IDA, does anyone know why?


And after being diverted to SLC, they flew a very strange routing back to Idaho Falls:

My guess would be a wx diversion. I once heard a 9E flight going to IDA turn back to MSP because over RAP because they didn't have an alternate and wx had dropped below mins.


Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

Well it was diverted about 50 miles East of IDA, and my guess would have been either wx or perhaps some odd occurrence, like runway lights out , runway closed, or something out of the ordinary.
On return trip, looks as if they took a route to choose another alt if the return didn't pan out. Route took them over RKS, then PIH then into IDA. Certainly odd.
