False Alarm Diverts Minneapolis Plane To Fargo

Posted Monday October 18, 2010

Airport tower Governor Doyle approved a $3.7 million project at the Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee this week that includes widening the safety area on a runway, paving the taxiways in some hangars and finishing an environmental study that will show whether the need exists for a new terminal.

(Fargo, ND) — A false alarm diverted a 50-seat Pinnacle Airlines regional flight that departed from Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport yesterday morning. Investigators say Flight 4375 was originally scheduled to arrive in Grand Forks, North Dakota, around 10:30 a.m. after its 9:15 a.m. departure from Minneapolis. But the jet was diverted after a crew member reported suspicious activity in the bathroom when a fire extinguisher had been tampered with. The flight was diverted to Fargo just before 10 a.m. Investigators say nobody is in custody and no charges are pending.
