Rockford Scanner™: Attention aviation fans, several diversions to the Rockford airport




Attention aviation fans:

Due to the weather near Chicago,  several aircraft have been diverted to the Rockford Airport.

Sources said several aircraft types are headed to, or have already landed. Some of those include an AIRBUS 330, BOEING 777, etc…


It is unknown how long they will be here for. Usually not to long. As soon they fuel up and the weather clears up, they usually head back to Chicago.

The Rockford Airport is an airport with long runways that can handle all types of aircraft and offers many types of services.

So when the weather is poor near Chicago, they use the Rockford airport to divert to, until the weather clears up.

There is currently a tornado watch just to our East. So the diversions may happen for awhile tonight.

Be sure to stop on out and Snap a few photos of the aircraft.  With diversions,  you just never know what you may see 😉
