It is understood that the aircraft in question was N505DN, which departed Seoul on Friday August 11 at 1952 local.

By 2240UTC on that day, the aircraft took the decision to head south in the direction of Omaha, and had landed into Omaha by 1909 local time.

Around an hour after the aircraft landed into the diversion airport, it was back in the air again, and landed into Minneapolis at 2136 local time.

The airport in Omaha put out a statement earlier today on Twitter saying the following:

“Last night we had a very unique visitor. OMA’s first visit of an Airbus A350 dropped in as a weather diversion.”

“Thanks to all the staff that helped get these diverted passengers back on their way as quickly and safely as possible.”

Within this tweet, Omaha’s Eppley Airfield provided photos of the diversion as well both after its arrival, and when it headed back out again to Minneapolis.

Credit go to the staff on the ground at the airport to ensure that the jet could continue onwards to Minneapolis after the bad weather passed. What a story in itself!
