What do you mean stuck? Do you know how long it was sitting there?
I'd hazard a guess that it was in position and holding for a widebody ahead to get sufficirent distance away, or something. Does CMH have intersecting runways? Another aircraft may have been on final/taking off on another runway.

I dont think theres any widebodys at CMH. I've been there and it's a very small, but nice airport. Perhaps he was just positioning and holding, or there was a mx problem causing him to have to wait and troubleshoot or something like that.

It had an emergency on takeoff, circled around landed, and ceased the brakes/blew the tires on the runway. Mx was coming by truck from DTW to fix the gear and move it off the runway. At least thats what ops was saying and pax were confirming when we flew out yesterday at 300pm.
Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!
