FL Flight Off Taxiway At GRR

Sat Feb 11, 2012 2:27 am

An AirTran Airways Boeing 717-200, operating as flight TRS 1292, taxiing southbound on Lima, tried to turn onto taxiway Delta when it failed to make the turn and slid into the grass at GRR. Only the nosewheel got stuck in the grass and no one was hurt or injured. The passengers were bussed back to the terminal to await a rescue flight.

Looks like they're getting the same nasty weather we are having here in Chicago.

Not to be picky, Airtran is FL, F9 is Frontier.
