Delta 757 In AMA On Dec. 23rd

Sat Dec 31, 2005 6:29 am

A week ago today I flew from DAL to AMA on WN, arriving into AMA at 1030. As I walked through the airport, I noted a Delta 757 sitting on the tarmac with portable stairs at the opened aft 3L door. Two airport fire trucks were parked nearby. Shortly after leaving the airport, while driving into Amarillo, about 1100, I saw the Delta jet takeoff, make a left turn and head to the west.
I did not hear anything about what was going on while at the AMA terminal. If anyone knows what flight or any details, I would be curious to hear.
Thanks in advance,

I was on that flight DL1692 from CVG to LAX and we had to divert to AMA for a medical emergency. A passenger in Y had a seizure and then a heart attack; we were on the ground for about 45 minutes before heading to LAX.
