Kitty Hawk 727 Blows 3 Tires At ROC

Fri Nov 24, 2000 2:02 am

Today's "Rochester Democrat and Chronicle" shows a picture in the local section of a Kitty Hawk 727 blocking ROC's long runway, having bllown 3 tires on landing. All traffic has been diverted to the short runway for a while. I wonder if this means that Delta will stop service here again until everything's back to normal?

I remember a Martinair diverting to BOS after losing hydraulics. The pilot landed the plane, but ended up blowing up the all of the tyres on the main bogies.

I too read the D&C this a.m. about Kitty Hawk. They said it was a 737.Must be because it has 3 engines! The newspaper is dumbfounded when it comes to aviation. By the way,I went by the airport and the 27 was parked on the taxiway,now-the rear air-stairs were down,but nobody was around.

Incorrect sir. Delta has some awsome loads in and out of ROC. Many business travelers use ROC. I wish they would upgrade service to 737-800 soon.

Dear DAL MD88,

Maybe a song will tell the tale best.

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
Of ROC's runway to be fixed,
The cross-wind strip would have to do,
For two short weeks!
For two short weeks!

Monroe County warned the airlines,
A full year in advance!
Fly smaller planes or lighter loads,
In June 2000!
In June 2000!

Come May 2k, Delta's seats were short,
On golden long-haul routes,
We'll yank the planes from ROC
A week in advance!
A week in advance!

How dare these hicks make us fly light,
Or even shuffle planes!
We are the Gods of the Airways,
Screw Upstate New York!
Screw Upstate New York!

Delta wrecked summer travel plans,
For thousands of little folk!
Who gives a rip if they can fly,
We've got bucks to make!
We've got bucks to make!

Now Rochester knows where we stand,
With Big Air Cartel Crooks!
Customer commitment is a fraud,
When bigger bucks beckon!
When bigger bucks beckon!

Jim

Not bad, Jim. Maybe I'll have my band cover this one. Of course, the G.P. would just think "huh?"
