What odd reporting...


"By about 10:30 a.m., the passengers were able to leave the secure zone and eat breakfast at Tudor's Biscuit World in the airport."

You don't say?!

Why would they need to take the passengers to ORD? Just fly in a replacement aircraft, as they did, load it and send it on to SAN.

From the article:

"Although it is not every day that an aircraft of this size lands at Yeager, Belcher said the airport was more than equipped to handle it. He said that 757s often land at Yeager as part of special events or chartered flights. Most recently, several 757s landed at Yeager carrying Washington dignitaries to Sen. Robert Byrd's funeral, he said."

Is it me or has CRW had a bunch of aircraft incidents in recent years?

Apparently you do not read the article that the OP included.

I was wondering same thing. Perhaps with the pax/cargo load, weight of adequate fuel to get to SAN made it too heavy for CRWs under 7,000' runway.

And what a huge dust cloud during the initial part of the takeoff!

That's from the unpaved runway extension.

Any word on what the problem was? If you look at the pics on their facebook page, it looks like they are looking at the APU. Just wondering if that was the problem maybe?



Long live the 757!

CRW is more than big enough to handle a 757. As a current 757 pilot I can tell you this with certainty. Airlines routinely fly from SNA and JAC, which have the same or shorter runways, nearly transcon with full loads. If United had wanted to they could have just flown non-stop but there were probably other reasons for not doing so such as fuel cost at CRW or aircraft availibility. In fact a certain AirForce sends it's C-25's ( I think that's right) ie 757-200 to CRW for training flights on a semi regular basis.

I dispatched a 767 into the airport. Believe me, it can handle a 767-300 as well. It's tight, but feasible.

Thanks for sharing. UA's 757 looks great, especially against the forest covered hills and on the ground with the empty airside.

Those had to be some interesting performance numbers, especially if it was a 76S or 76P. Those things can eat up a 10,000' runway pretty quick with any kind of a load.   That being said, with flaps 20 and the right load, no problem.

Would it be the Ryan Int'l 763 that stopped in a while back?

What all would factor into this? Could it just have been a "comfort zone" type deal since CRW probably isnt in the UA mainline op specs?

That's true, all the time.
