FedEx 727 diversion?


#1

This morning about 6 minutes ago this flight from MEM to ROA apparently diverted to Nashville for some reason. By looking at the sudden drop in speed appears to be an engine loss?

Looking at the tracklog graph, they begin descending about a minute or two BEFORE any drop in speed. I would think that speed would bleed-off before altitude if there was an engine failure. I’m thinking maybe a pressurization problem as they level off at FL150 for about 12 minutes.
