At 1am on Saturday morning a Continental Boeing 737 ran off the runway at Port Columbus (CMH). Aircraft is stuck in the snow right up to it's axel's. Thankfully no injuries to Crew or Passengers. He will be there for a while and CMH is currently closed.

Driving past it last night, it looked like the plane just couldnt stop, sliding off the end of the runway. Last night it was snowing so heavily we could not see the plane land or when it was off the runway from the Delta gates.

It's almost 11:00 EST and the airport is still socked in. We have almost 2 feet of snow here at the airport and still falling. Runway 10L/28R is closed indefinitely since the Continental jet is still accumulating snow at the end of the runway. The only arrival we've seen today is an America West red-eye from LAS that made it in during the 20 minutes that the runway was actually open. Only 3 flights have left, 2 Skybus flights and 1 American Eagle flight. Everything else in and out of Columbus is cancelled until the early afternoon at the absolute earliest.

Quoting FlyCMH (Reply 5): Only 3 flights have left, 2 Skybus flights and 1 American Eagle flight. Everything else in and out of Columbus is cancelled until the early afternoon at the absolute earliest.
The morning GSO-CMH on Skybus was cancelled...collective moan from the gate next to where I was sitting while chuckles from many of the passengers sitting in the DL gate area.
Currently in DTW where the snow is coming down at a decent clip; at least pretty much everything is on time.

It's hard to tell but the APU looks more like that of a classic to me. I'd say a 733.
Quoting Kaitak (Reply 7): Any ID on that 737 yet; can't quite make it out from the picture, but with 130 pax/crew, likely to be a 733/73G/738? Hard to see what it is from the photo, but it looks a little too big to be a 738?

Quoting Railker (Reply 16): I love the article's relation of how "passengers were frustrated with how long it took authorities to get them off the plane."
I noticed that too. Did they expect CO to have three 50-passenger buses just sitting there "just in case" they were needed? Did they expect CO to call Buses-R-Us to have three show up within 10-15 minutes?
