I didn't see anything on the forum about it so sorry if this was already posted.

A Lufthansa A340-600 was parked by Terminal 2 at MSP. At about 9 p.m. (Central Time), the A340 took off. I'll upload pictures and a video soon.

Wow, wish I was there. I can't remember the last time an A340 was at MSP. It's the one type that even diversions are rare.

Here is the video of the takeoff with a couple pictures: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMhvN9bdFI8

I wonder why it diverted and, looking at Flight Aware, it looks like they were going to divert to MKE but flew to MSP instead.

Nice video - thanks for sharing! Although I see the A340 quite often in Germany the A340's takeoff is quite stunning!

Weather perhaps??? MKE may not have had a suitable runway to use due to the flooding that has occurred the last few days.

MSP had a spectacular sunset last night, and the LH A346 took off at just the right moment. I was on my back deck in South Minneapolis and heard an unusual aircraft noise I didn't recognize. My friends and I all turned around and it flew right over us, heading due north above cedar avenue and then making a nice tight right turn to the east immediately south of downtown. Folks on the south side of the city with a skyline view would have had just a tremendous view of the eastbound turn over downtown. Glad someone caught the video!

Wow, awesome video, Af773 - must have been quite an experience! Would love to catch a flight on a 346 someday. Nice catch! Maybe LH can begin flying it to MSP one day

Those things might climb a little better if the gear retracted faster! Watching the video, from 1:00 to 1:24 was the time when the doors first opened, wheels up, doors closed! Almost a half a minute. Maybe it's like this on all big ones, but never seemed to notice that before. Maybe I'm just used to watching a butt load of 737's retract their gear which have no doors on the mains. Cool find however, don't know when the next time we'll ever see a 340-anything here at BNA.

Doesn't LH-434 normally fly to ORD? Is the weather bad enough to divert from ORD-MSP? I see it was rainin g at MSP.

Chicago is getting what Milwaukee had the last few days. This is probably the MUC flight to ORD.

No and no. At one point nw did have 340s on order, but that was cancelled long ago... Would be cool, though.



The 747 will always be the TRUE queen of the skies!

NWA had the A330 and A340 on order back in the late 1980s early 1990s, but NWA entered bankruptcy around 1992 and cancelled them. NWA reordered the A330 in the mid 1990s but posponed their delivery until 2003, when they finally took delivery of the A330.

Continental also had ordered the A340, but took the 777 instead.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

Northwest didn't actually file for bankruptcy in 1992, but it came very close to doing so (and repeatedly threatened their unions with it) while it was dealing with the financial aftermath of the leveraged buyout in 1989. It was during this period that they cancelled their longhaul Airbus orders.



Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar
