Just saw this pop up on twitter http://www.newsnet5.com/dpp/news/loc...land-Hopkins-International-Airport
Luckily looks like it is no big deal and everybody is safe with no injuries. That is always a good thing! I wonder if there is any substantial damage? The METAR in CLE isn't looking too nice right now, but nothing major.

I don't know, but looking at Flightaware the most recent UA 737 to arrive was 1639 from FLL about an hour ago. I'm not sure if that is it or not but I am assuming so.

You just have to love journalism. As long as you have the airport right it doesn't matter what you write! Good to hear it was only a taxiway though. Sliding off the runway is a little more serious..

Looks to have been N24729. It's been a really bad day ice wise in northeast Ohio. I went out to my car this morning to find 1/8in of ice over it. Made for a lot of fun driving in those empty parking lots though...     



Clear skies and strong tail winds.

Looks like a slip and slide kind of day in CLE.

Looks like the 737-700 exited runway 6L around the Bravo high-speed and ended up in the snow. Fortunately nothing lost beyond a couple of bruised egos up in the cockpit.

From what I posted they were actually at low speed. Their was almost no traction anywhere this morning so I'm not really surprised it went as far off as it did with such low speed.

This clearly shows that both united and the 737 are highly dangerous aircraft, and that CLE is a dangerous place to fly through.

J/k. Saw this from a landing flight today- glad everything is fine. Though have to say its a bit weird seeing a bird with its tail in the air surrounded by fire trucks when you're landing.

And yes very slippery... I almost went flat on my backside walking on the Tarmac...

So are you going to update your sig with DHC8 then?

Yes it does look slick. If you look at the photos provided by fox8, the window shot from the US E170 clearly shows that the taxiways had 1/4 clutter of slush, water, and patchy ice. Often times airports do a great job on the runways, but neglect the taxiways. You can slow to a reasonable taxi speed, take the high speed turnoff and its off to the races. I landed ORD 28 several years back in a moderate snowfall, slowed to a crawl to make the 90 turnoff at F, and had the tail weathervane and start spinning like a car. I got lucky and saved it only by releasing the brakes, turning the tiller into it, and cobbing the power to get her going straight. It happens quick and you have very little room to work with.

I wonder how fast they were taxiing...especially given that it was slick.

So many reports of icy taxiways and planes sliding off...

At the airport where I control, our de-icing crews are busy with taxiways when they're not on the runway... In all my years I haven't had an aircraft slide off....

Its just logical if a runway needs snow/ice removal then so do taxiways...

Notice I said often, not always.   It seems that at airports with multiple runways when the precip is really coming down it is all they can do to keep the runways operational at the expense of the taxiways, though not always. I generally taxi at a snails pace when the surface is slick as the tiny tires just don't have the grip.

Thanks for clarification, I got your meaning...

My point was there seem to be a number of these incidents every winter. Surely at some point (i know, its a stretch of the imagination  Wow!) somebody will service taxiways better to avoid this happening.
