ASQ5553 SBN-ATL CVG Diversion 8/10/12

Fri Aug 10, 2012 10:53 pm

I have flown this flight before and I know flights get diverted all the time. This flight was only less than an hour out of SBN and got diverted to CVG and never left. Anyone at CVG know the reason for the diversion? Must have been something mechanical that they couldn't continue to ATL and have fixed there.

It was probably a mechanical. Best guess is that it landed at a DL hub so they could recover those IROPed passengers?

Less than an hour out of SBN would have put it on it's decent out of ATL, I think you mean less than 30 mins from departure from SBN?

Flightaware is being a pain and won't display the diverted flight, so I can't see where it went.
Look ma' no hands!
