What Happened To DAL Flight 55 Today?

Sun Aug 25, 2002 7:05 am

I was listening on my scanner, and found that Delta 55, ATL-NRT diverted to ANC today (8/24). What was the reason for the diversion, if anyone knows?

I'd be more interested in knowing what kind of scanner you were using, and what frequency you were listening to so as to ascertain a fuel-stop while the aircraft was still 1,500nm from ANC....
