i was just informed that an ATA 737-800 landed at LGA's rwy 22 and stopped on taxiway B only to be surrounded by police and fire vechicles. i know that sand was poured on the taxiway.

Only thing that comes to mind is that they may have had a hydraulic system problem, i.e. a leak, and the sand on the taxiway was to contain and soak up the fluid until the aircraft could be moved and the taxiway completely cleaned up.

Did you happen to notice if they towed the aircraft in from its position on the taxiway to the gate? Nosegear steering is on the "A" hyraualic system, so if towed in, that'd be the one that failed/leaked. It happens once in awhile...

Not really sure what happened but the aircraft was towed (with a fire truck escort) to park in front of the former TWA Hangar.

Poor ATA this is the second problem in like a month or a little over a month. The last thing was the 757-300 overun at MDW. I hope nothing really bad happened to the 737-800. i hope that is is going to be airborn again soon.
