A UPS 744 has declared an emergency due to computer problems and is circling around SDF awaiting permission to land.

Good thing my new netbook was shipped FX!   

Seriously though, I'm thankfull that the plane landed safely and the crew fine. Hopefully whatever the problem was, it'll be resolved quickly and correctly.

Better arrive late than arrive as part of a smoking wreck, no?

I'd go with none myself. The flight shows as lasting a half hour. Plenty of time to swap the freight to a different ship, leave SDF, and still make the sort in DFW.

Uh oh, someone's sarcasm detector failed to go off. Better check those batteries.

Depends on who you ask I suppose. I'm sure there is more than one important document onboard which must arrive on time or it could cause career-ending consequences for the sender. Contracts, agreements, perhaps even shipments of cash.

N579UP had issues with anti skid system and also landing gear. Had to go around on first approach.
