CLT is in the dead center of a huge storm cell and flights are diverting all over the place. CHS has seen a US 752 from SXM and is about to see US flight 1080 from TIST (a 762) that has been in flight for 4 hours and 55 minutes! IF anybody has any stories or spotting pics from these we would love to see them.
Also, who knows where a lot of these are going? I'm in Myrtle Beavh and my dad and I saw an unknown 757 flying over and we realized an hour later it was going from SXM to CLT and was circling over MYR before going to CHS. But, why are there flights departing but not arriving?

As to your question about why flights are leaving but none going in? CLT may have a Ground Stop in place, or Flow Control issues (flights requiring more spacing on approach). Thus the diversions on inbounds. IAH has had it going on since the beginning of this past week. I have worked 5 days strait up at the gate rebooking connections because of the same problem. Summer time anywhere will always find Thunderstorms parking themselves right on top of a HUB. Today (SUN the 15th) finds DFW and IAH having issues at the same time. No flights leaving CRP on time to either destination this afternoon.
