Continental Micronesia Flight Turns Back To GUM

Fri Oct 14, 2005 8:08 am

Just read on Guam's online version of the Pacific Daily News that Continental Micronesia's flight 06 that leaves daily to NRT and is continued to IAH turned back after the flight crew became aware of an irregularity 30 minutes after departure. The flight took off from GUM at 12 noon CST and returned, and was airborne again around 2:30 pm CST...Not an emergency landing they claim, just a precautionary measure to ensure all was fine with the aircraft.

Guamvice, thanks for the post. I was slightly surprised to read that CO is using a 738 for the NRT leg. I remember (and I know I'm dating myself) when that was a DC-10!

Yeah, Flight 006 is only one of their 3-4 daily 738 narita flights...there's even one flight that uses a 767-400...
