I was at Security waiting to go through when I heard over the radio that an aircraft slid off of 22L. At 8.30 as I was getting ready to leave the airport, all the passengers were at K19/K20, refreshments were made available to them. Their replacement aircraft departed out of K17 with a new crew. Their spirits remained high though even though they slid off of 22L.

Sounds like a rough day for AA at ORD today on top of the recent cancellations. In addition to this incident, CNN reports that an AA S80 flying ORD-STL experienced an engine failure and returned to ORD for an emergency landing. I can't find any information on which flight this would be on aa.com though, and the 6:30 pm departure time doesn't really match up with any of the reported actual departure times on their flight status page. Does anyone know more?
Umm its just you. Did you not notice the weather? lol Anytime you have ice or snow covered runways there is going to be a lack of traction. I dont see why this is such a surprise to some. Same thing on the roads after a snow or ice storm you see tons of cars that slid off into a ditch.

Quoting Phileet92 (Reply 10): Is it just me? or has runway overruns have been happening more often since that CO one?
There is a HUGE difference between an "overrun" and a MD80 catching a patch of ice on a taxiway and ending up in the grass. The CO overrun in DEN was a write-off. This MD80 is probably just fine, aside from a bit of snow and grass caught in the nose gear.

Heck...just another skid80 incident. Nothing to see..move along...grin.
Course its younger brother pulled a similar at MLI this week...the AirTran bird was a 717...no injuries and only 2 of the 3 gear off surface.
weren't there a couple of tail engined RJ's also off the paved area this week? think a COEX was one pix I saw...possibly a UAX as well??? Add in the CO 735 at DEN and has not been a good week for driving......
