Drama Continues at CID Today with Delta N324US

Earlier today, the President and Air Force One were present at the Eastern Iowa Airport (CID) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa - see prior post. Just a few hours after the multi-blue colored 747 carrying the President left eastern Iowa, another drama event occurred - this time it was one that potentially was bad.

This Delta Airbus A320 (N324US) lost power to one engine (of two) in route from Minneapolis to St. Louis. The decision to bring the 150 people down quickly was made and the airport was alerted. See flight path below. 

The Airbus landed safely and the passengers exited. A maintenance team evaluated the engines this evening as I went back to the airport for a second time today. No word as to the nature of the problem or how Delta locally handled the passengers' travel. Stay tuned for more CID-rated news...
