Little Rock or XNA


#1

Flight from LaGuardia to XNA this morning - headed to Little Rock then
perhaps realized the error … ??? What do you think???

#2

flightaware.com/live/flight/EGF8 … /KLGA/KXNA is the actual flight.

Armchair piloting here, I’d say he either received word that XNA weather was going to be too bad so he started diverting to LIT and then found out the weather was okay or that he was diverting south to avoid weather (the latter is the one I’m rooting for).


#3

Very seriously doubt weather enroute or at XNA was the issue.

Even Little Rock was VFR the entire time

Nothing severe happening in the weather department in AR this morning, so flight deviation that large wasn’t due to weather.

That area is loaded with MOA’s so if I was to armchair this flight, a MOA became hot OR he just did the old fashion airways (I don’t have my charts handy to peek).

Would this have to do with the ZME ATC ZERO this morning/afternoon?

Good possibility.

Yup!

For the Lennie’s in all of us. " D’uh George, what do them words mean George? "

Just another thread in plain English. Not that pilot mumbo jumbo. :wink:
