Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC)

Summary

2003-01-13: NWA 19, a B747 was enroute from Minneapolis to Tokyo and was near the Wainwright VOR, when the crew requested a diversion to Edmonton due to a reported discrepancy in the baggage on board the aircraft. The aircraft dumped fuel north and east of Edmonton, commenced arrival at Edmonton International then requested deviation to Calgary, due to maintenance needs apparently arising from the fuel dump procedure. NWA 19 landed at Calgary at 2256Z and after being checked at the designated holding area, taxied to the Terminal at 0000Z. No other aircraft were inconvenienced.
2003-01-14: UPDATE TSB reported that the Boeing 747-451, N664US, was enroute from Minneapolis to Tokyo. About 100 NM east of Edmonton, the crew were advised of baggage on board that could not be matched up with any passenger. The crew contacted ATC requesting a diversion to Edmonton, descended, and dumped fuel. Because of a problem with a fuel transfer valve, the diversion was changed to Calgary AB where the operator had a maintenance contractor. The flight landed without incident, parked in the designated holding area while the suspect baggage was removed, and taxiied to the terminal for maintenance access. By the time the repairs were completed, the crew had reached duty limits, so the crew and passengers overnighted in Calgary and resumed the flight at noon the next day.
