DL201 Diverts To ASI

Thu Jan 10, 2013 6:36 am

DL201 JNB-ATL 9JAN13 had an oil pressure issue and shut down the associated engine thus diverting to RAF Ascension Island/Wideawake Airbase/Georgetown, Saint Helena (ASI/FHAW). They landed around 8:25pm Eastern time, (1:25am local), even though, at this writing, FlightAware is still showing DL201 in the air about 5 hours from ATL due to the tracking being in estimated mode. This is a quick shot of ship 7103 to be the rescue aircraft as DL9978 is being prepared for the journey. They were scheduled to depart ATL at 11pm local but now shows a 1:30am estimated departure. Would be interesting to see two DL tripple 7's at that location.

Flightaware has such horrible lag sometime.

Any ideas on how quick something like this will be fixed?

If I ever become that multi-million miler like from that UA guy I'd like my name on this ship

That's going to be a challenge to get spares to ... especially if an engine change is required.

Heard from a guy at work last night that after DL201 diverted to ASI, there was another plane that was landing and clipped 201's wing. Not sure how bad the damage is. Also found this link:

You go, Delta! First Midway Island, now Ascension Island? Is Diego Garcia next?
