Re: DL68 Divert CDB- Cold Bay Alaska.

Delta is chartering Volga-Dnepr AN124 to deliver support equipment including two deicing trucks to CDB in order to get N177DN ferried out. They should have brought a 767 engine too. But the aircraft is scheduled to leave CDB today: https://www.flightradar24.com/flight/dl9862 No engine change, but t...
