Six planes diverted to Scottsbluff due to weather at DIA

Six planes diverted to Scottsbluff due to weather at DIA

Half a dozen United Airlines planes were diverted to Western Nebraska Regional Airport Tuesday afternoon due to a microburst in Denver that produced winds of 70 mph, rain and low visibility that made landing at DIA impossible.

Airport Operations Supervisor Raul Aguallo told KNEB News that the planes came back to Scottsbluff to get fuel due to the problems landing in Denver.

The first plane landed in Scottsbluff shortly before 3 p.m. and Aguallo said there were still four planes at the airport before 6 p.m. waiting to get the OK to take off and get in line to land in Denver.
