"No injuries were reported when a jet with 117 passengers on board skidded off a taxiway at Indianapolis International Airport . . . The plane was not damaged."
Good, no injuries reported and the a/c should be OK.

"The plane was headed to Milwaukee from Chicago, but was diverted to Indianapolis because the Milwaukee airport was closed due to weather." Diverted in the other direction only to have this happen.  crazy

Milwakee to Chicago??? the article says Delta, since when does Delta fly from MKE to ORD??

I remember last year when in a span of a month 4 or 5 aircraft skidded off runways and taxiways during poor weather.

The flight was originally operating from ATL to MKE, but diverted to ORD due to MKE weather. After its second attempt to land in MKE, it was forced to divert to IND.

MKE has absolutely been terrible with snow removal the past couple of years. They can't keep runways clear to save their lives. I think MKE has had more snow related diversions over the past couple of years than all the other airports combined.

What taxiway was it? Does anyone know what runway they're using for arrivals?

Delta ferried in another A/C to take pax to MKE.

Obviously the pilot will be blamed for the slideoff, and rightly so, but air traffic control was also a factor. They were on 5's the whole night, and told IND ops they would stay that way. Then they switched to the 23's without telling Ops at all.

Why is this a problem? Well, in freezing rain conditions everyone is scrambling to try to keep everything from icing over. Since it's impossible to continually de-ice the whole airport, priority is given to runways and runway exits in use. When landing on 5's, B5 was kept in good shape since that is the high-speed exit for 5L. When tower switched to 23's suddenly, the high speed used for 23R would be B7 instead. Which was iced over. Since tower gave no warning to ops, they couldn't get it de-iced. So tower closed it. When the Delta landed, he was instructed to pass B7 and take the next available left. Problem with that was that B11 was also iced over, (but B12 was not!), and ops repeatedly told tower beforehand that B11 was a CLOSED taxiway.

Add to this that tower rushed him, saying that there was an aircraft in position and another on final, so take the next exit to your left "without delay."

So he turns onto B11, which had a braking action of "NIL," probably a little hot, and so he ends up on the island, in the safety area,...and then tower takes off a southwest on the same runway then lands a few more planes before they realize his tail is practically sticking out on the runway lol.

Oh well, the passengers were bussed off promptly, no one was hurt and the aircraft is fine.



Live your dream.
