AA Incident in SAT

Sat Jun 03, 2017 4:42 pm

Noticed on the FAA's OIS page a ground stop for SAT/KSAT due to "other/emergency". I'm hearing a possible "excursion" by an AA aircraft?

This article has a pic of the aircraft in the mud. Still determining why the pilot veered off the runway.

Was Flight 2214 from yesterday. Was diverted on an ABQ-DFW flight to SAT. We had heavy storms all day in Dallas yesterday. Crew needed mandated rest. Flight left gate a little after 9 for the leg up to DFW. That's as best as I can figure. SAT had a lot of diversions yesterday from DFW.

Crew rest rules don't require a diversion if you are delayed in the air. You're future flying schedules may be altered.

The diversion was for WX. The crew as a result of that diversion required rest.

AA2214 rejected their takeoff roll this morning on 13R and ended up in the grass. The SAT press release stated that there were less than 40 people on board. Runway 4-22 was closed due to construction but a follow-up stated that they were working to get it reopened. I'm not exactly sure what kind of work they are doing on 4-22. I'm dreading heading into work tonight. Between this event this morning and Friday's weather-related issues in DAL, it's been an interesting 48 hours for sure.

I don't understand how the aircraft could have ended up where it did from a rejected takeoff. I saw it when I drove past this morning. It was on the right side of 12R less than 500 ft down the runaway (right at, just past K). The nose was pointed towards the end of 12L (looking over head), it almost looks like the pilot missed the turn onto the runway. I'm surprised that the aircraft could have enough momentum at that point to cause it to go off that early in the roll, unless something like the steering went bad, but I am by no means an expert.

They changed runways to 13/31 when it re-opened from winter long construction.
Riddle: Which lasts longer, a start-up airline or a start-up football league?

There is no construction on 4/22, just the adjacent taxiway(s). Re-opening was a matter of getting stuff out of the way and turning on the ILS, and cancelling NOTAMS. As far as the excursion is concerned, there is a long black skid mark that appears to come from the right main gear from the start of takeoff roll. The runway was probably a bit wet from overnight storms,and AA seems to think that the cause.

A long black streak caused by a wet runway?

Wouldn't that be from a wheel that wasn't turning, causing a skid mark?

Conjecture : brake did not release after standing at the end of the runway before starting the takeoff roll?

Sure was! The entire week here has been hit or miss. Earlier in the week I was talking with a pilot from a local carrier who mentioned that they had 3 runaway changes before landing due to the strong wind shifts. It seems that the entire southwestern part of the United States could be in for some interesting weather this summer!

Concur. They do expect an "above average" monsoon for New Mexico this summer. Fun times ahead! :roll:

I commute to DFW twice a week. Already have had half a dozen weather events in the last month or so.

Wow! With all that's going on in New Mexico recently do you think anyone would care if I started a New Mexico aviation thread?

I'll add this little nugget to this thread instead of starting a new one. A WN ramper was indirectly struck by a bolt of lightning that hit a WN 737. He's OK and is under observation at a local hospital. I heard about this while on duty tonight from a passenger on an unrelated issue. Then browsing the interwebz I found the story about it.
