Must be a medical diversion. Only on the ground for a short period of time.

Bad storms are about the punish ORD as we speak! On www.flightaware.com you can see about 6 aircraft circling just north of the storms on the WI/IL border. I would not doubt if we see diversions popping up any minute

Why did it enter a holding pattern if it were a medical diversion?

Could it be flow control into JFK?

There are storms all across the east right now. This is the reason I love summer, the awesome weather. If only AZ could get some storms too.

Anyone know where I can listen to ORD ATC online? LiveATC.net doesn't have it.

Interesting, this flight diverted to ROC on the 16th.

Give it a few weeks and TUS will start to see PHX diversions because of monsoonic activity. It doesn't happen often but when it does...
