Something makes absolutely no sense. Article says he was flying from Dodge City to Liberal but went to KC for proper equipment. That's 300 miles and passing Wichta, Salina and Topeka, besides dropping South into Oklahoma or Texas.

MKC is Flight Express's home base. Most of their pilots will opt to return home with a gear issue than be stranded elsewhere, as long as they have the fuel onboard to do so.

I found that kind of weird too. Looking at the activity log on FlightAware, I noticed that it originally said it was going from Dodge City to Wichita before being diverted to Kansas City.

Flight Express has a base there, that is probably why he went there.

You are correct, they do have a base there. I figured that is why he decided to go to KC. After all, it wasn't an engine failure or anything.

I wonder if the assigned FLX720 to a new plane, or if they already got it repaired and flying again.

Flight Express uses the same flight number for the route, not aircraft. The accident aircraft is in the shop still.

Thanks! I figured that is what happened, but I couldn't speak for sure. That would have been an amazing turnaround to have it flying again.

A Cessna 219? The media rarely gets anything right about aviation. What if they did made the same mistakes with cars and trucks? A Ford Suburban or a Chevrolet F150.

I believe Flight Express has a base there. That may be why he went there.
