Wow for once the media actually has it right, based on that pics he is in fact off the runway. Looks like maybe just a little off to the side

As opposed to the usual case where the nose gear slips 5 ft off the taxiway while taxiiing to the gate with a headline of "passengers shaken as jet skids off runway"



Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

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.

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.

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?

It's hard to tell but the APU looks more like that of a classic to me. I'd say a 733.

CO1492 IAHCMH Ship 303 ( A 733) landed at 2315hrs
CO753 EWRCMH Ship 702 (A 73G) landed at 0001hrs

Were aircraft still landing after the ... event.. ??  scratchchin 

If the wingtips were visible in the picture it would be obvious which it was...

Seeing as CMH has 2 runways, more than likely. It is Ship 303, CLEMX seems to be changing all tires and brakes. No other damage noted.

Well, if that were the case, it could only be a -900  Silly

I think you mean a little SMALL to be a 738 tehe

That is good... But it's not as if 303 (or 702) was able to go anywhere today anyway.  cold   covereyes   boxedin

I love the article's relation of how "passengers were frustrated with how long it took authorities to get them off the plane."

Well, that's what the emergency exits are for. Jump out and go trudge through chest-high snow to the terminal if you feel so inclined to get out. Big grin

I can't say, though, what the circumstances were or how long it actually did take, but I can guess it involved snow clearing for portable stairs, which can be fun on grass I would imagine.

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?

they also have to realize that as employees we just can't run out there..........we need to wait for the airport authorities to escort us out there......


okay, I'm waiting for the rich to spread the wealth around to me. Please mail your checks to my house.

No damage to the aircraft, back in traffic on Sunday. If anyone in doubt, it was Ship 303, a -300
