Weather at MSP
isn't the best but is certainly good enough for a DC-10 landing. Is this flight being diverted because of a medical emergency. I know that the AMS
flights get a lot of passengers continuing to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Could the condition of a passenger gotten serious? If so, why wouldn't they continue to MSP
They cancelled their flight plan to MSP
at 7:42pm CST and filed one to RST at that time. They landed in RST at about 8:00pm CST. The latest is that they left the gate at 9:33pm but haven't taken off yet (9:45pm).
