If it was a emergency why did they fly 700 kms. Instead of flying to Sydney or Halifax.No comments from the KALB telling me to Google it.thank-you

I’ll live, Johnny… Jonny? Johnnie?

Check avhearld.com in a few days. the cause may show up there…

as to why KBOS… facilities for maintenance? weather in KBOS was better than CYHZ? Does CYHZ have a curfew?

So many questions…


#5

But there where even closer to Gander which does not have a curfew.


#6

Exactly… why? Good question. Did you do any research of your own? Did you look at boston.com to see if maybe it made the local news there? Does Halifax, indeed, have a curfew? Are there facilities on airport in Gander or Halifax to fix a busted 757?

An inquiring mind wants to know… perhaps you could check those things out.


#7

I thought thats what the discussion page was about not someone to tell me to do research. discussion means having a discussion?


#8

Why have a discussion page.i think everyone knows you can find anything if you keep googling stuff but hey this is better to get people’s interactions.not some know it all.


#9

No… that would be the questions and answers page.

If say, someone starts the discussion:

“OpenSkies 4 diverted the the other day to KBOS (flightaware.com/live/flight/BOS4 … /KEWR/LFPO). CYHZ would seem to be a logical diversion point since it doesn’t have a curfew. Everything I’ve found so far points to the fact there aren’t services to fix a 757 there, though. Perhaps it was diverted to KBOS due to facilities. I haven’t been able to find anything on what services are available at KBOS. What would be some of the reasons they diverted to KBOS instead of a closer airfield?”

-or-

You could just ask the question and expect someone else to find the answers.

But that’s me… the transplanted Upstate New Yorker from Indiana…
