Let The Fun Begin In The Northeast 8/17

Sat Aug 18, 2007 5:47 am

Hi All,

I know that TN4 was diverted to BWI enroute to JFK for re-fueling. Is it due to WX up in the New York City area? Have there been any other diversions?

Cheers,
Aussieindc

ATL has some rather nice looking storms as well. At least the Houston area has cleared up now that Erin has moved west.

Here in ALB, a UA 757 and DL 757 in Song colors have landed, I am guessing due to weather in either JFK or BOS. I watched the Song landing, and it was completely unexpected from my view in the observation parking lot. I missed the UA landing unfortunetly.

These all diverted to SWF this afternoon:

American 757-200 SAN-SWF (JFK)
Continental 737-700 SNA-SWF (EWR)
Continental 737-700 AUS-SWF (EWR)
Continental 737-800 IAH-SWF (LGA)
Continental 757-200 SFO-SWF (EWR)

By the way, I've been keeping trakc of most of the diversions to SWF this summer:

Quoting KstateinALB (Reply 2):

I suspect it's weather in the JFK area and/or routes to BOS; the weather in BOS today, while cloudy, has been generally good. Things are much uglier to the southwest.
