Air NZ 744 Diverts To Goose Bay, Canada

Wed Jul 31, 2002 10:33 am

NZ2 LAX - LHR, operated by ZK-SUI, diverted to Goose Bay, Canada (YQX) due to a medical emergency onboard.

It arrived in YQX at 0230 (30 Jul) and departed at 0330, after the passenger was offloaded to receive medical treatment.

Hi TG992,

YQX is the city code for Gander, Newfoundland. Goose Bay's city code is YYR.
So, did the flight divert to Goose Bay or Gander?

Oops.. my mistake. Starnet says YQX, I'm guessing Gander is the correct airport!!!

Goose makes sense.
Gander would be a bit south on any LHR-LAX routing.

B737-700:

AC_B777 did not write `YVR'.... he wrote `YYR'

I heard this flight the other night on the radio and sure enough they were diverting to Goose, Flight #2
