LONDON – Over the course of this morning, chaos has ensued at Miami Airport as the very low fog is causing multiple go-arounds and multiple diversions.
Based on data from RadarBox.com, AviationSource has observed a pattern of diversions into Fort Lauderdale as well as aircraft attempting multiple approaches into Miami-Dade.
Below, are some examples:
Above, you can see the path that AA908 from Ezeiza, Buenos Aires, has taken. It entered a hold and has subsequently gone around due to the low fog.
AA906 from Sao Paulo diverted to Fort Lauderdale after one or two missed approaches.
Also, AA1141, operated by a Boeing 737 MAX 8, also diverted to Fort Lauderdale, having originally come from Medellin.
This is a developing story. More to follow shortly.
