skywest 1993 Diverts to SPI due to engine failure


Just got back from the aerodrome to go check out the CR9, as here in the cornfields the biggest we get are ERJ’s and CRJ’s. It diverted due to an engine failure and as I speak the 60 pax are standing at the UA counter (due to lack of a DL operation here) to, I assume, get hotels for the night. That’ll keep the Hilton shuttle running for a while.
Must have been a pretty interesting flight in as the current winds are around 300 @ 30 Gust to 40. Runway 31 so at least they had it pretty much right down the runway.
Thats our excitement for the night!
