According to WCCO's newscast tonight, Duluth airport staff deny this and a mobile air stairs is seen connected to the aircraft right after landing. Apparently pax were flown back to MSP
on another DC-10 10 hours later. Let's see... flight from MSP
$600, car rental and gas from Duluth to MSP
$60, getting stuck on a 40 year old rustbucket with 300 of your closest friends in Duluth, MN
- priceless. When will this end?
