Unbelieable. They must have brought in some aircraft carrier personnel to get them untangled when they were released to depart. Friday/Sat must have been busy!

Amazing!!

I was in Halifax in the summer of '68 and while waiting at the airport on a Saturday evening for my flight home to Montreal, three 707's landed there, bound for New York. The planes were arriving from Europe and were low on fuel because they were stacked up at NY due to a controllers' labor "action". The 500 or so pax pretty much filled the terminal to the point no one could move.

I can't imagine the bedlam when all the people from all these planes get off at the same time! I don't think all of Nova Scotia has enough hotel beds to accommodate them all.

Is that an Alitalia A310 in the background?

It looks like the green of Alitalia to me. Possibly a 763.

Fantastic shots. What did happen with all the pax and crew? Does Halifax have enough hotel space. How long did it take to clear the backlog?

Nice. Does anyone have any similar shots for YVR? Pretty much every Asia-US West Coast flight was diverted to YVR -- that should be even crazier!

They really don't have enough hotel rooms. I've been told that the DL B763 STR-ATL landed in Gander, and the passengers had to sleep two nights in the aircraft. Not sure about this (why sleeping in the aircraft? I'd prefer sleeping in the terminal building), but this is what I've been told.

I see a SQ B747-412 at the background. Possibly diverted from either EWR or JFK. The ORD flight was diverted to YYZ.


9V-SVA  Big thumbs up

Great shots! Really nice!

How can anyone possibly sleep in an aircraft? Wasn't there room in the terminal builiding or a hotel? Did the pax complain to EI?

Truely amazing photos: when was the last time so many flyable planes were bunched together? In England at the end of WWII?

I never thought I could see such a busy airport!
It looked as a carrier ship with all its planes ready to be launched for action!

The one that you see is in the background is the AZ 763 flight 610 from Rome.

Alitalia, in a pure Italian fashion, treid to send a 763 from FCO on thursday, when it seemed-for a couple of hours- that the Atlantic traffic wasopen, just to make it divert and return to Rome three hours later....as far as I know it was the only European carrier who attempted to so...
