As I put in my IAD diversion thread, we got Egyptair, QF, TAM among others. It was weird seeing Egyptair coming into IAD. I wish it wasnt raining and so cloudy here otherwise it wouldve been a great afternoon to go spotting.

Another diversion landed a few minutes ago at BOS. Unlike the others, this one was outbound long-haul not inbound.

Poor Cargolux 834. This Luxembourg-JFK 747-400 was supposed to go to Boston...then to Bradley...then went all the way up to Bangor, Maine. It sounds worse than it probably was; he ended up doing a few loops over the Gulf of Maine before they decided where he ought to go.

Anybody know if any of these will be staying the night and flying out tomorrow? and anybody know what time the A380 landed today?
Thanks.

Today I was driving by the Belt Parkway and seen Aeroflot SU315 going in for landing and aborted takeoff, It was actually very scary as I was watching the developments unfold right in front of my eyes while I was on a red light.

It seemed like the plane was going to land on the Belt Pkwy and was very low and then gained throttle and flew away.

When I got home I checked that this flight landed safely in IAD.

I am not sure I am using Flightaware correctly but can someone post a link to this flight?

A380 for Air France is at E8A.. I had to move my plane (FI 757) before he could come in cause he would have blocked us at E8B! The following planes ran out of crew time and RON'd, will leave between 0600 and around 1400:

AF A380 - landed at 1630 will leave at 1400
EK 777
IB 346
Caribbean 737
Air Jamaica A319
Swiss A330 from GVA

I think thats all I noticed. It was craaaaazy!

Didn't have my camera! Was extremely busy.. I'll be in in the morning and I'll see if I can get some shots. Like I said, most of these planes won't leave until later..

I wonder if those airplanes will go down to JFK, or if they'll go back to CDG, etc.

Well I know the LX 330 is going back to GVA at 1800 tomorrow evening, but the rest I believe will go to JFK, for the mere fact that they probably weren't able to bus every single passenger to JFK ( we're talking over 1000 pax, 500 from the AF alone ) .. not to mention the return pax affected (JFK-EUR)

With the closure of RWY13R/31L it was a nightmere. You get a few more when we get bad weather here. Anyone got pics of the AF A380.

There were so few flights even attempting to land or takeoff that I don't think the closure did much damage. During the peak of the storm, I'd estimate there were at most 10 movements per hour.

If the land at BOS, did they go through customs there? It would seem like one less thing to deal with at JFK....or were they only on a (literally) ground hold?

Can I have a mojito on this flight?

NYC news reports said that on Saturday JFK had wind gusts up to hurricane strength - 75 MPH! EWR had delays of up to 5 hours, LGA at 3+ hours. All airports were pretty much shut down from Philadelphia and north of NY City. I suspect many domestic flights were cancelled due to the conditions and the airports, their customers looking for flight out will be crazy today.

There was a major 'Nor'easter' type storm from Maryland to Connecuticut dumping 2-4 inches of rain, heavy winds well inland taking down many trees and power lines causing numerous blackout areas, local flooding of streets and potential major flooding along many rivers in New Jersey and lower NY State. The worst of the storm moved north overnight and should be in upstate NYS, Massachutes and Maine today, Sunday.

If the airplans RON'd at BOS I would doubt they made all the passengers sleep on the plane, LOL.
I'm curious however, whether they put the passengers in hotels for the night, bus them to NYC, or put them on other flights out of BOS.

I'm guessing all luggage stayed on board even though the passengers got off? Normally you have immigration (Passports/landing cards) and Customs (luggage). Did these people only need to show passports before 'gaining entry into the U.S.?' And none of them had to deal with Customs because the luggage stayed on-board?

What if someone had a family of killer Tarantulas in a carry-on? No one would be there to stop them!

Last night was an interesting night. I tried to get some pics yesterday, and this morning, while towing some of our aircraft around the north cargo area of BOS. I also snapped a pic of the Delta Hangar that has its roof peeling off due to the high winds. I apologize for the quality - they were quick shots with my blackberry which is all I had on me.

The high volume of diversion aircraft arriving in BOS last night caused issues that were only worsened by uncontrollable circumstances. While taking one of our terminating RON aircraft over to north cargo I was cleared by Boston ground to taxi via Alpha to north cargo which became an issue once the pushback tractor pulling the Emirates 777-300 broke down in the middle of the taxiway.

BOS ground acted quickly having myself , a couple B6 A320's and an AA777-200 "dance" around the taxiways to get past Emirates. For such an increase in international traffic I can say that BOS ATC did a phenomenal job at keeping everything running smoothly.

As a side note - this morning when I came into work there was a terminal wide announcement that the busses scheduled to take Iberia's passengers to JFK were ready and they asked that passengers proceed to the pickup point. That is the only carrier I know of that had buses scheduled to transport diverted passengers.

I also know that the PHL-FRA LH flight that diverted here was due to smoke in the cabin.

I had started a new thread about the damage to Delta's BOS Hangar last night and included pictures of diversions, but I guess it got deleted for some reason.
Anyway, the roof departed the hangar at about 5am EST. Also, here are some pictures of aircraft diverted to BOS from JFK due to closure:

31 FWA2500 : The A380 is 7 feet shorter than the A340-600, though the extra hight of the A380 makes the proportions seem significantly smaller.
