I can't beleive no one has posted this yet or am I just blind. It happened 2:00pm saturday afternoon. It was all over the TV news channels in Sacramento last night, but I had a hard time finding anything on it today. It was like it never happened.
If it were AA or UA I'm sure it would be world news by now.
It's still stuck in the mud almost 22 hours later. It sank all the way down to it's engines, making for a difficult extraction.

Thanks for twisting my words and making it sound like something negative. Please explain where I said it was Southwests fault about the so called "loon" and the cessna. I've looked at my post again and see no reference to it.
Southwest did do a great job of keeping it quiet! Their PR dept could have handled it completely different and then caused the media to make a huge deal about it. Cause it happened in Sacramento it was probably a bigger story there. I happened to be up there last night, thats how I knew about it and this story got more coverage than the Tampa incident on the Sacramento news channels.
We are aviation enthusiasts and I thought maybe some other people would liked to have known about it, so almost a day later I posted it, with a link so I wouldn't get my ass chewed for not posting a source.
Well, I guess thats not good enough for some people, gotta create negativity with all posts.
I'd like to know more about this 747 that's in the ditch. I can't find anything on it either. I guess its another story thats been dwarfed by the "loon" that crashed the cessna.
