Wondering if anyone had any info on the 767 that had an incident in DTW last night around 2340 local time. Apparently it was the DL 767 that brought the 49ers in to play the Lions. Recovery crew was sent up from ATL last night about 2am with brakes and tires. Did a search and couldn't find anything. A/c was 1403.

The aircraft is apparently still in DTW.
It was supposed to ferry to LGA after dropping the Niners last night.

wow this got to be so funny. Again DL seems to like to run off the runway.

If DL keeps doing this thats their new reputation : We like to land on grass and or mud and it shows.

I read the title, And immediately thought it was BA202 for LHR Boeing 767, Because this flight left late, and after reading the name of this post i thought it all added up, But when you say Delta lol... Wonder why BA flight was delayed my next guess would be because of the weather around DTW last night, That's interesting to know i thought only BA operated a 767 at Detroit.

When I saw the title I wondered if it was a DL jet. I told myself DL doesn't fly 767's to DTW and must be someone else. But I was proved wrong, only DL drives through the dirt.

I heard DTW go into a short Ground Stop last night around 17:50 due to a "disabled aircraft." I would figure this was it, but the times are off.

It's a southern past-time, mud riding. They should replace the tires with some Mickey Thompsons and forget the paved taxi ways.

Seems like they would be sent from CVG? Just closer. Guess there were more spares in ATL.

This was a chartered aircraft, not a regularly scheduled flight.

The 767 certainly is a rare bird at DTW. Our photo database only has 8 pics of it there: 1 BA, 6 DL and 1 UA.

The UA pic is from 1983, showing the first UA 767 flight operating from DTW. I wonder where that flight was going.

Unload everything and pull it out with a tug. This assuming they just dropped one set of gear off the taxi-way during a turn.

If the whole thing is off in the mud, might be like bogging down a combine in the corn field, wait for dry weather.

I spent all night watching and photographing a 727-200 recovery about 30 years ago. It had been raining all day, and the right MLG was a few feet off the pavement and into the mud. They brought a crane in, and put it on the taxiway, on the opposite side of the aircraft, overhanging the fuselage. They removed access panels on the wing, and lifted that wing so the gear was out of the mud, and cleaned it off. They smoothed out the ground and planked over it with rather stout looking wood (not railroad ties, but they looked smaller) leading back to the paved surface. They tried to tow it out, but ended up firing up the 727 and driving it out, Patroni-style....

Well, if DL loves going off the runway so much why don't they just put all-terrain mud tires on the A/C? I'd love to see a commercial jet with all-terrain tires.

It's called "Muddin". And it just gangs of fun. But they way you made that statement, it seemed to sound like you are picking on us Southern folk.

This kind of thing seems to happen often, as the the bulbs in takiway light burn out more frequently.

I grew up in MVC. Anyone north of Montgomery was a Yankee to me. Now, I live in Chicago. A bit of a change. In SW Alabama is was mud riding or better yet, "mud ridin." I had a Chevy and my roomie had a Ford. It made for some good mud competitions.

Hardly anyone Chicago knows what a Mickey Thompson is, you should have known I am not from here.

The picture's great, huh?

Actually, I remember Delta at one point did have scheduled 767 service to DTW - at least in November of 2001. I remember taking a DL 767-200 from DTW-ATL (late afternoon/early evening departure).

I remember this flight particularly well because it was the first flight I had taken since 9/11. I wasn't particularly concerned about at the time, but I remember noting that this was the first time I had ever been on a 767 full of people that was COMPLETELY SILENT during boarding (I could hear the conversation the ramp agents were having in the cargo hold...).

Guess they got it unstuck and just left it there for the return Niners flight.

The UA pic is from 1983, showing the first UA 767 flight operating from DTW. I wonder where that flight was going.

The flight was going to ORD. United put a huge 767 model in the gate area in honor of the first flight. At that time, there was a Detroit chapter of the World Airline Hobby Club, and we had an an "unofficial" club meeting the day of the 767 inaugural.

For a few months in 1984, TWA flew 767s DTW-STL. AA also occasionally scheduled 767s into DTW in the 1980s.

J&M towing of Romulus, Michigan has pulled aircraft out of the mud at DTW in the past. I wonder if they called them again. J&M has the largest tow truck in the state. It is 10 wheel drive with dual front steerable axles. It has something like 63 forward gears. It ca go as fast as 60 mph or as slow as 600 feet per minute. They also have a variety of other huge tow trucks.

A buddy of mine had to hire them two years ago to get his Ford F-350 out of the frozen mud, along with a 22,500 pound bucket loader he tried to unstick it with. They got the truck out with a D-5 dozer, but had to use the big tow truck to remove the loader. They had to remove trees and use the dozer to build a road just to get the tow truck to the loader. The guys at J&M were really cool. We went back to their shop and they showed us photos of stuff they recovered like a locomotive, a helicopter, and a NW A-320.

They are on Inkster road just south of Ecorse if anyone wants to drop by and see the huge tow truck. If they aren't to busy they would probably be more than happy to show it to you.
