Delta Flight 55 3 April 2004

Sun Apr 04, 2004 3:32 am

Hello all,

Can anybody tell me some details about DL Flight 55 today? I was at the grocery and noticed some large contrails in the sky so I went to http://www4.passur.com/sdf.html and changed the time on the display to 11:21 am today. If you look around the Salem, IN area you will see DL 55 what appears to be enroute to CVG. Did it have a mechanical, some other emergency? I haven't finished watching it to see what it does. But I thought it was interesting.

I never did find the large contrail I saw going west at that time. Would military aircraft show up on this web site?

Thanks,
John

Strange... if you keep watching it, at 11:28am it disappears from the monitor....

I guess these web sites aren't perfect and sometimes cross-id the flights.

Let's hope!

Cheers to all,
John

very odd...looks like it was going to SDF and then it disappears! hmmm.
according to delta.com, no diversions
Again, according to trackaflight.com it is direct ATL-RJAA (NRT)
NEXT FLIGHT: FLL-ATL-HPN on FL

I am glad I am not the only person who saw this. Never did figure out why it was there, but guess it was a Passur.com error and nothing with the DL flight.

That was a very interesting website to visit. Do you know if there is a website that I can visit to track planes in my area? (Houston) IAH, HOU..
Thanks. t2f
