Where Were TWA T/a Rerouted On 9-11?

Fri Sep 05, 2003 7:20 am

I was wondering that on 9-11 TWA had still two transatlantic flights operating.
It was TW721 from London/Gatwick to St. Louis and TW924 from Paris/CDG to New York/JFK (althrough TWA 819 CDG-STL was cancelled on September 9th this year!). So where did those planes land on 9-11 2001??? Any pics?

I can confirm that ALOT of TWA flights were diverted to STL actually simply they were either close nuff or heading to it anyways. All the flights out of BOS were all to STL. they were simply spreaded all over....

Well in the picture below you can see the rear of one of their 767s so it's either flight 721 or 924.

TWA did not divert to Halifax while I was there.....Maybe Goose Bay?
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

The TWA 763 in CMH was the TWA flight from JFK to LAX which was rerouted to CMH this day. So one plane was rerouted to Gander, which was TW925 from CDG-JFK, but where was TW721 from LGW-STL rerouted? At the time of the disaster about 10am this plane was only some 3 hours in the air (LGW - STL is some 9 hours!). Did it fly back? Did it stop in KEF?

Who knows???
Tell me!!!

Dont quote me, I'm writing this message on behalf of someone else from Canada. Apparently alot of diversions were to Moncton, which included TWA flights.

TW 721 was operating LGW-STL that day. It landed in Moncton, New Brunswick (YQM). It was the last plane to leave Moncton (on Sep. 14). All in all, YQM got about 15 extra planes that day. Oh, and by the way, it was a 767-200 in the old TWA colours.
Next flights: YQM-YUL-YVR-YUL-YQM / YQM-YYZ-HKG-DXB-BCN-YUL-YQM
