Mitchell Airport reopened at 12:07 p.m. today after a 35-minute closing caused when a Northwest Airlines plane had to abort a take-off and skidded off of the runway, officials said.

There were no serious injuries to the 100 or so people on board Flight 1726 bound for Detroit, said Pat Rowe, communications director for Mitchell International Airport. Rowe did not know the condition of the plane or the reason for the take-off to be aborted

Quoting Daus (Thread starter):
skidded off of the runway

Planes do not skid off runways every day.

The flight was 1726 as per the article and is now rescheduled to leave at 2:40 PM with a new aircraft according to NW.

Thank you... And they also don't close the airport for 30 minutes everday.  Smile

An Update:

Update: Plane had engine problem

Engine problems led pilots to abort a take-off today of a DC-9 from Mitchell International Airport, an airport official said.

Pat Rowe, communications director for the airport, said she did not know what type of engine problem caused the pilots to abort the take-off. Northwest Airlines spokeswoman Jennifer Bagdade said she could not comment on the cause.

Two buses took 99 passengers and their luggage back to the airport terminal early this afternoon. The airport reopened at 12:07 p.m. after a 35-minute closing caused by the accident, officials said.

There were no serious injuries to the passengers and crew aboard Flight 1726 bound for Detroit, Rowe said.

Northwest Airlines released a statement this afternoon on the incident that said:

"During its take-off roll, the crew of flight 1726, a DC-9 departing from Milwaukee to Detroit with 99 passengers and five crew, opted to discontinue its take off. The aircraft came to a stop off the runway surface.

"Passengers are being deplaned using stairs and are being bused back to the terminal. Passengers will be accommodated on the next available Northwest flight.

"Preliminary reports are that one passenger is complaining of a sore back. This passenger will be examined by medical personnel. No other injuries have been reported.

"Northwest apologizes for the inconvenience the delay of this flight has caused its passengers."

That happened as I was walking into work. It's off next to the railroad tracks next to the 128th ANG base so 7R/25L will be closed for a few days I'm sure.

Stupid sources....mmm..yes it was 2 buses but they had like 6 trips each cause the busses only hold about 10-15 people each. Also their bags were offloaded in normal fashion via belt loader and bag carts.
The snow is just nuts, it was coming down good when this event happened. The snow was on and off all day only really letting up for 10-15mins at crack. In almost a cerimonial fashion, the first airplane to land, after they opened 1R/19L to use for traffic, was a Northwest DC-9 painted in the new livery, the one that overran was painted in the old livery. Big grin I guess you could say, Out with the Old and In with the New.

That's the second NW plane that had problems this week. Yesterday a NW plane had to return back to DTW because it ran into a flock of birds on its way to DCA. But, good flying by both pilots of these planes with no one hurt.

Well, hopefully all's okay with the bird ... looking at that pic, it's sitting upright, on all three gear ... hopefully all that's wrong is it's stuck (and now frozen) in the mud.

I know Patroni likes Boeing products ... but MD is now Boeing, so maybe he can come help ...

Besides moving the plane, does anything else have to be fixed (lights etc) before the runway is reopened? Also did the runway have the arresting concrete at the end?

I wouldn't be surprised if some of the lighting was damaged. Theres no concrete at MKE to stop planes from overshooting. Here's a new story from the Journal Sentinel about those saftey walls and if they should be put in at MKE. Also another pic showing how close the plane was to the nearest railroad tracks.

Yes...there were 3 other bag carts too. If you read the article in the JS, they said the first emergency responders got stuck in the snow and the pax started laughing..hhehe..guess those fire trucks aren't all terrain.

how serious is that? Could that have brought it down? Could it take off with one engine? Did they hit the brakes after VR?

Well losing an engine on a twin engine airplane almost always has up to 80% performance decrease. Twin engine airplanes are certified for flight on one engine provided that they are past their rotation speed, the climb will totally suck but it'll keep them in the air. The crew did the right thing and kept it on the ground instead of trying to be tough guys, however the engine broke before V1 (take-off decision speed) so they had to stop. Off the end of the runway is always better than trying to push a crippled airplane into the sky, look at NTSB reports about airplanes trying to stop after Vr or trying to take-off after a failure before V1. It always ends in a mess, this is where training pays off.
