(still looking for the Minneapolis Center original mayday(pan) call)

A United Boeing 777-200, registration N779UA performing flight UA-1888 from Chicago O'Hare,IL to Las Vegas,NV (USA) with 326 people on board, was enroute at FL380 about 10nm northeast of Lincoln,NE (USA) when the crew declared Mayday reporting they had lost their right hand engine (PW4077) and decided to divert to Lincoln. The aircraft positioned for an ILS approach to runway 18 and landed safely about 25 minutes after leaving FL380.

A replacement Boeing 777-200 registration N220UA reached Las Vegas with a delay of about 8 hours.

The occurrence aircraft is still on the ground in Lincoln about 18 hours after landing.

You have the approach sector covered, as that's covered by the OMA TRACON. They combined Omaha and Lincoln a few years ago, and are now based out of Offutt AFB. However, the RCAG from Kearney may have something, as it was also the low sector at the time they had descended.

Hmm.. I was thinking that they would be the center controller handling the area at least on the descent. The high sector would have caught the initial emergency, but nothing is covering that.. I was hoping that the low sector would have something..
