DTW WXA Diversions 7.27.12

Sat Jul 28, 2012 10:50 am

There was a good round of Thunderstorms around 1pm and then consistent lightning for the next few hours. I watched atleast 20 diversions, just wondering if anyone knows exactly what went where? Looks like unlike the last DTW Weather situation last week, the big birds made it in this time, although one of the AMSDTW did appear like it was going for BUF at one point. Thanks for any help

ORD caught DL678 a 738 from SEA to DTW. That was it other than 1564 returned to the gate due to the ground stop.

Saw the parade of DL jets taking off from CMH during rush hour, knew there weren't two Airbus jets scheduled back to back and figured something was up in either DTW or CVG.

CMH got a DL 738 from SFO, an ERJ from RIC, an A319 from I think BWI, an A320 from FLL, and a US ERJ from DCA.
A310/319/320/321/333, ARJ, BN2, B722/73S/733/734/735/73G/738/739/744/757/753/767/763/764/777, CR1/2/7/9, DH6, 328, EM2/ERJ/E70/E75/E90, F28/100, J31, L10/12/15, DC9/D93/D94/D95/M80/M88/M90/D10, SF3, SST
