Emergency At Iad?

Thu Jan 31, 2002 8:41 am

I took a look at the FAA's Air Traffic Control System Command Center. It says, as of 6:35PM EST, that "Due to EMERGENCY, traffic is experiencing Gate Hold and Taxi delays between 16 minutes and 30 minutes in length and increasing."

Does anybody have any information on this? What type of emergency has occurred?

I just saw that, too. It could just be that an aircraft is blocking a major taxiway... Who knows. I'll check a few other sources.

bump. I haven't seen anything on this yet. It is probably a run-of-the-mill emergency situation -- a/c without power or something of that order.

By now it's showing green again on the fly.faa.gov website, so whatever it was, it's over.
