Just saw on the news that an American Airlines plane is off the runway and sitting in the middle of the road at LAX. It looked to have been a 767 but i only caught the tail end of the news broadcast. Nothing on CNN.com yet. If anyone sees anything keep us updated!

yeah - it looks like the plane just decided to run away with no passengers or pilot on board! through a fence and knocked down some wires - nothing serious though. poor AA - its really not a bad airline, but this past year has been devastating for them and especially their fleet of 767s.

Yeah, CNN is stating that there is some speculation that the parking brakes were not set. The aircraft was parked overnight for maintenance, I believe, and just started rolling! LOL! Next time, don't forget the wheel chocks (SP?), guys...

No. AA just has too many of the aircraft and is experimenting with ways to turn them into billboards.

apparently LA police ticketed the aircraft for illegal parking... even i know youre not allowed to plop an aircraft in the middle of a busy street... ha! its so funny i doubt that any serious investigation will take place... somebody screwed up - doesnt need another million dollar 6 month investigation here... good ol FAA at work for ya.

Changes to California DMV driving test coming up..

1. You're driving your automobile down a two-lane asphalt road and a Boeing 767 unexpectedly pulls out in from of you from the right. Who has the right-of-way?

a. The automobile, because it's on an authorized roadway.

b. The Boeing 767, since it's bigger, and probably has been cleared accross by ATC ground control.

c. Whichever vehicle can "punch it" faster than the other, and avoiding a collision and/or obtaining V-1 in the process.

I can't think of anything really funny to say because everything there is to say has been said.

This is one of the more humorus accidents I have seen. Luckily no one was hurt.

Ohhh yeah, Lax, I remember THAT accident  Laugh out loud! But I have a question, were the pilots of that CO jet still on board when it crashed through the EWR terminal? Hopefully not.
