Just thought you people would like to hear about an interesting night in Anchorage(ANC) last night...
A Delta MD-11 flying from Portland(PDX) to Nagoya(NGO) diverted to ANC last night do to a medical emergency(heart attack).The flight was almost half way across the Pacific when it turned back to ANC.The interesting part I thought was that after landing in ANC...the flight returned to PDX due to the fact it could not continue to NGO due to an airport cerfew in NGO...so all passenger's flew back to PDX and arrived in PDX about 4am(local time).
It's interesting to fly for about 10 hours and arrive at your orginal departure airport,huh? hehehehe!
Also,a Northwest 747 (NW flight 008) from Narita to Seattle diverted to ANC early sunday morning due to a mechanical problem...the aircraft is still in ANC over 12 hours later...I don't know how NW accomidated the passengers...I hope they are still not stuck on-board hehehe!
