Virgin A340 At OAK 6/6

Thu Jun 07, 2012 7:45 am

I saw a Virgin Atlantic A340 come into Oakland today. Anyone have any info on what it was doing there? Flight Aware said it was diverted on the way to SFO but it was quite a nice day here today.

There were delays/groundstops at 1130a-12p and around the 3pm timeframe for VIP operations (aka Air Force One). SkyWest diverted a flight to SJC earlier in the day to this and I would venture to guess VIR41 diverted for the same reason.
