AA 16 Diverts To SLC

Thu Jul 05, 2007 5:52 am

AA flight 16 from SFO-JFK is in SLC right now. It's a 762. Apparently it's medical because there was some rescue trucks around the plane. It is in gate A7 right now. I got some pics on my phone and will upload them later.

Anyone from AA tell me the reason it diverted? I'm thinking medical.

The tail number is N327AA.

It's exciting to see some big planes that aren't DL or a cargo plane.

Flight aware shows it back in the air on its' way to JFK. Looks like it was on the ground just over 90 min.

AA.com shows an arrival delay of an estimated 2 hours. Hope the person is ok if it was indeed medical (which it appears it probably was being on the ground for as short of a time as it was). Bummer for those who were hoping to catch some fireworks over NYC.

Yeah I saw it take off again at about 4pm. It looked awesome with the mountains in the background. Sucks for those passengers that got stuck in SLC for 1.5 hours.
