Where/when Is This Incident?

This photo of what appears to be a WN overrun was posted on the internet with a satirical caption, which initially offended me because I thought it was the incident at MDW about a year ago in which a little boy died when the car he was in was hit by the a/c.

However, someone else posted a response to the picture, saying that the incident shown in the picture had no injuries or fatalities. The $1.59 price on the gas station sign behind the a/c in the picture also pretty much rules out last year's incident.

So...while I'm still somewhat offended at the use of a picture of an aircraft incident in satire (although much less offended than I would be if there had been injuries/fatalities), I'm still curious to know when and where the incident shown occurred. I'm sure lots of people on here know the answer to that?

Here is the picture I'm talking about:

That's Southwest Airlines flight 1445, that ran off the runway in March 5, 2000.

1455, not 1445...  Wink

Get a LIFE!!

There were no fatalities. Surely anyone with an interest in anything will therefore be offended by the use of whatever interests them in satire. And then satire would fade away into nothing.

(All just opinion)

Thank you, Mestrugo and OPNLguy!

Swiftski: I wasn't offended because aircraft interest me. I was offended because air crashes kill people, and I imagined what memories might be brought back if someone who was injured in, or lost a loved one in, a *different* crash saw this crash being made fun of. Okay, maybe "offended by proxy" is a little silly. But different people draw the line in different places, you know?

Things that can kill include roller-skates, peanuts and stupidity. Where would humour be without stupidity? Things that can cause serious injuries include toilet seats and tea-cosies. That's life, and humour, I'm afraid.

And that was the price of gas in southern CA, which averages 20-30 cents higher then much of the rest of the U.S.
Just think how cheap it would have been in some place like TX then.

What happened to the 737NG in Chicago? Was that a hull loss too?

No, it was repaired and returned to service, but with a new registration.

$1.59 a gallon!!!!! WOW.

When i saw the prices, i thought it was per litre, and still thought it cheap. My last fill up here in UK cost £1.06 per litre, roughly translates to over $2.10 per litre for you guys. How would you feel about paying that?? Its a real problem here, but we gotta get around, so we all begrudgingly pay it.

It's Southwest 1248. I can assure you there wasn't snow on the ground in Los Angeles on March 5, 2000!  Smile

A little boy in a car was killed when the jet hit it.

On December 8, 2005, Southwest Airlines flight 1248 landed on runway 31C at Chicago Midway Airport, Chicago, Illinois. The runway was contaminated with snow. The airplane departed the end of the runway and rolled through a blast fence, a perimeter fence and then into traffic on an off-airport street. The airplane came to a stop after impacting one car, which resulted in the death of a child passenger in one of the vehicles. The airplane was substantially damaged.

No, it's not. The OP was talking about this one: http://i29.tinypic.com/2j4vgaa.jpg which was SWA 1455 at BUR.

Ah, you're correct. My apologies to Mestrugo.
