FDX1653 Diversion Last Night (2/7)

Fri Feb 09, 2007 1:50 pm

Just wondering if anyone knew why FedEx 1653 bound for CID from ATW diverted back to ATW shortly after takeoff. I was on my way home last night and noticed a plane landing that didnt look familar to me landing at ATW at that time of night, so I turned on my scanner and pulled off onto a side road to watch as the 727 fly over me. Checked flightaware and saw it left again later that night bound for CID.

A/C I have worked in ATW - SF340 E145 CRJ2/7/9 DC93/4/5 A319/20 MD83 B738 B752/3 B763/4 A333

Perhaps it was a weight and balance issue that needed to be corrected, or a mechanical issue that was resolved back on the groud.
Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.
