UA835-25 ORDPVG, a 777, diverted into Winnipeg on a mechanical, landing there at 2:14pm local. United is prepping another 777 and a fresh crew to ferry ORDYEG, then continue YEGPVG. Anyone have more information?

To clarify, the code for Winnipeg is YWG. The YEG code belongs to Edmonton.

I would be surprised if they had a 777 in ORD. More likely it would be in SFO.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

?? ORD has multiple 777 movements daily. In fact, the rescue a/c did come from ORD.

I know they have multiple movements, but I always thought spare 777s were in SFO at the maintenance base there and not ORD. ORD usually has a spare 747 on the ground and plenty of narrowbodies, but more spare aircraft are typically on the ground in SFO.

Either way, I don't think it is a very important point.

Smoke in the cockpit is what caused the emergency and subsequent diversion to YWG yesterday.

The Asia planes usually overnight in ORD after coming back from their trips i.e. the PEK/PVG flights land in the late afternoon and overnight before turning back the next morning. So I'm sure the rescue plane came from an inbound PEK/PVG flight since both are on the 777 right now. Conversely, SFO's planes normally land earlier than their departures back to Asia and so turn around the same day. That's why the SFO-PEK/PVG planes overnight in China, not SFO.

From the Transport Canada daily incident reports site:

UAL 835, a United Air Lines B777, was en route from Chicago to Shanghai and north of Poplar River, MB when the flight crew declared an emergency due to smoke in the cabin and requested diversion to CYWG. They dumped fuel prior to landing at 1836z.
