Didn't look like anything serious but I have no other details.

Must not be affecting operations too much, as 27L, 27R, and 22R are open for arrivals, and 22L, 32R, 32L are open for departures, according to the ATIS. Anyone know what runway it happened on?

Over the weekend, ORD had a massive snow storm. While they can get most of the snow off the runways, there may be some residual snow/ice left. Just like a car on roads that have been plowed, the residual snow/ice can make a car slide, so can aircraft. Also, if there is any ice on the taxiways strong winds could blow an aircraft towards the edges. Due to the mounds of snow on the edges of the runway, taxiways, it is easier for pilots to misjudge the turns they must make and a wheel could go off the runway, taxiway ala Airport 1970.
Once I flew into MDW right after a big storm had blown through and we were taxiing very slowly to the FBO. A passenger asked why we couldn't move faster. I told him due to ice on the taxiways I didn't want to take any chances. His response: "Why don't you put it in low gear and speed up"!  Nuts

Is it just me, or am I responding weekly with the same comments about AA and their MD-80s being involved in runway incident?

That can't be a good thing...

Type-rated--I agree with your statement--to a degree.

If you are flying a MD80, you should be beyond the point of misjudging your turn onto a taxiway. I've landed on totally snow-packed runways (downhill on STL 30R) and it's just something you adjust to.

The wind blowing a plane off the ice-covered ramp or taxiway is certainly a possibility, though. Anyone know how well the ramps and taxiways were cleaned? ORD usually does a stellar job.TC

I am following all AA M80s incidents. I'd like to see a photo of this M80 off the runway in O'Hare. Anyone care to post a link with photo in it?

No kidding people.....there's been too many of these! Every time I see the thread title, I think it's just an old thread...but low and behold, it's a new one...maybe it's AA's huge fleet of these, or just complete odds stacked against them...either way, watch out for your mad doggies.

ORD runways clear and dry since early this morning, landing plan W (27's, 22R with LAHSO). May have switched to plan X in the evening. Wind less than 10kts after 21Z.


Cheers!

So what IS the deal with the AA S80's having these problems? Is it random luck, something inherent to the plane, or just the fact that there's a ton of these things in service?

And I should be surprised because---it is Chicago  Insane

In any case, hopefully the AA MD-80 is ok. How many times has ORD been closed so far this winter? That is obviously what it can be well known for.

I thought ORD never has been closed because of the weather. Heard it once on discovery I believe... Is it true?

I'm sure it's just the sheer number of AA M80's -- about 350 in service.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Any more details on this incident? Anyone see any news about it? Flight #? Where the plane was coming from/headed? If everyone is OK?


It's funny when I tell people I love planes and they think I'm weird.

A319114:

I think since ORD became the primary airport for Chicago in the early 1960s, it has officially closed only 3 times. There was January, 1967, when Chicago was buried under 2 feet of snow. There was January, 1979, when we had about 21 inches and bitter cold. I think there was a shutdown in the early or mid 1970s in April. Although Chicago only got a little over a foot of snow, it came down very quickly and was very wet, making snow removal very difficult.

The New Year's snowstorm of 1999 didn't officially shut down ORD. There was one runway open, but pretty much every airline shut down operations on January 2nd.
