MDW 31C Runway Patch Problems

Mon Jul 23, 2007 8:47 am

This is really a non-story, as i'm sure it occurs occasionally at every airport, but it is of interest. Apparently MDW is having problems with an epoxy used to fill potholes.

No injuries were reported in the incident Thursday morning on Midway's busiest runway, but a business-class plane that landed immediately after the pavement blowout sustained damage to a tire, officials said.



Hmmmm.... Wondering what exactly is a "business-class plane"?

A well dressed one, probably wearing a suit and tie.

Thank God MDW is owned by the city and not the state. If it were owned by the state, we'd still have a 4 by 4 by 4 hole in 31C because its not in the temporary spending authorization.

We would, however, have universal healthcare for those who are injured on inbound planes!

Ok, wait for the RJ to pass, cleared to push tail south Mike, and you're cleared to spin #2 in the push.
