SWA 2196 on 12/30


#1

Does anyone know why swa 2196 was diverted from MDW to IND on the 30th? I can’t find any info about it.


#2

Nothing on Avherald about it and from the short time they were on the ground in IND, I would guess it was a medical emergency.


#3

That would be very surprising as they were 10 minutes from mdw but diverted 40 min sotuh to ind… very odd


#4

Wow, you’re right. I guess I should have looked at the track log. :open_mouth:

Well then I guess I don’t have a good guess unless it was weather?

I found a METAR showing that the winds at MDW were about 180 @ 15 knots gusting 24 but other planes were getting in so don’t know.
