Strange Movements In Minnesota

Wed Feb 21, 2007 8:37 am

NW flight 70 has been coming to MSP on the 18th and 19th instead of going to DTW. Was this a medical emergency or was it because of weather? www.flightaware.com/live/flight/NWA70 No other Japan-DTW flights have been diverted, but two days in a row?
Also a North American 763 landed at Duluth International Airport from JFK. Anyone have any ideas?
It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

I believe that was chartered to take part of the Air Guard Unit on a deployment to Iraq.

February 18th the flight continued to DTW non-stop.

According to www.nwa.com, the February 19th flight diverted to MSP due to "crew limitations". Perhaps NW swapped flight crews in MSP?

US Airways flight 1625 from MSP is going to Seattle, why? It seems like theres a lot of weird things going on.
