Any Info On WN Charter/diversion To ABI?

Mon Nov 26, 2007 3:20 pm

On Friday around noon I was surprised to see a WN 737 on final approach at ABI. I'm not sure if if was a high school football charter (doubtful, given the fact that the teams playing were from Ft. Worth and Lubbock), or a diversion due to weather at LBB or somewhere similar.

Anyone have any info?

Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

I see. It was carrying Abilene Christian University's football team to an NCAA Division II playoff game against Chadron State in Chadron, Nebraska. Apparently RAP is the nearest airport to Chadron.

Thanks for the info. I must have seen the dead-head flight in from DAL.
