UAL 744 Divert To Msp

Sat Jun 30, 2012 4:11 am

While doing some late evening spotting at MSP I saw a 744 land on 12R. It was dark out so I thought maybe it was a Delta plane. I was even more suprised while it came back on taxi way Mike I could make out the old United colors. Flightaware shows it as UAL 896 HHH to ORD. It looks like it left HHH 10 hrs late, then gets diverted here. Not a good day for this flight. It was still nice to see "The Queen", its been awhile. I'm guessing medical, since it's getting ready to leave.

I think you mean either VHHH or HKG, but I do know what you're talking about. Sucks for those passengers.

There was a tropical storm affecting the HKG area last weekend, not sure if it was the reason for the delay.

Another strange UA 896 is on July 1 it diverted to Rockford and then had a 20 minuted flight to ORD.

My guess is WX in ORD...
