DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The first oceangoing ship of the season should be arriving under the Aerial Bridge around 8 p-m  Wednesday.  The "Diana" flies the flag of Antigua and Barbuda and was originally scheduled to arrive Wednesday morning but was delayed because of significant ice issues on the lake.  This marks the latest arrival of a "saltie" to the Twin Ports since the St. Lawrence Seaway opened in 1959.  The "Diana" is expected to be followed later by the "Zealand Delilah", a 2nd "saltie" that is traveling in the same group across Lake Superior.  The "Diana" will load up with grain at CHS in Superior.
