Sitting here at SMF and noticed both a UPS 757 & A300 on the ramp in front of Terminal A. While a diversion for weather seems logical I couldn't imagine it being that much worse at Mather than SMF. Especially since the visibility this morning has been less than 1/8 mile at SMF. Also, looks like there are ground ops in motion with the side cargo doors open. UPS 956 & 960 are the flights that arrived early this morning.

Quoting SMFBase (Thread starter):

Mather doesn't have a Cat III approach like SMF has. SMF has both Cat II and III which can bring you down to 700 and 600 RVR respectively.

This time of year, you will see a lot of different UPS planes at different gateways because of fly through flights due to the Holiday season.

Not in this case, it was a weather diversion.



Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Thanks for the information. Looks like UPS has a back up plan as a few UPS semi trucks just arrived at the ramp. Assuming they are taking the cargo to the distribution center.
