From the video I've seen, it looks more like a case of off the taxiway, not runway.

I've never been to Houston but do the news agencies always refer to IAH as "The Big Airport?" At the end of the video report on that website, the reported says, "We're live at 'The Big Airport'."

That would drive me nuts if I lived there...

Why do you have a problem with local nicknames(if that is the case). Does is ruin the image of a sacred airport?

Ran off the high speed taxiway. All three gear in the mud. Engines ingested some mud, borescope. Recovery under way. Heard nose gear is up and on plywood according to Joe Petroni. Nose gear looks okay. Lt MLG next, then Rt MLG. Joe Petroni will attempt to pull it out.

Yup. It's the Big Airport or Intercon. It's less syllables to say Big Airport than Bush Intercontinental. We deal with it perfectly fine, even if it is from Fox News.

Don't know why it would bother you. Most native Houstonians like myself refer to it as 'The Big Airport', 'Intercontinental', or more recently 'IAH'. Only outoftowners or 'Newstonians' call it Bush.

   But you'll sometimes hear "Bush" used for IAH on the news, too. Mostly "The Big Airport" or "Intercontinental," though. I think that if you've been around Houston for 20 years or longer it will always be "Intercontinental."

Landed 8R, right onto HS turn off, left onto taxiway was the plan? Then either cut the left turn too short or hydroplaned in the heavy rain ... Glad no injuries.

If this was WN there'd already be 20+ posts about how they were taxiing too fast and how unsafe they are and linking it to the OTHER post about the recent letter from the FAA they got (which UA just got)... just making a point. I don't think UA is inherently unsafe in ANY way, but when you want to stir the pot, you will (ahem CERTAIN posters).... let this be an example of how easy and unnecessary it is and let it STOP!

That's a little paranoid don't you think?? Looks like that Bad Boy went sideways off the taxiway.
It more than likely will need a nose gear change when they drag it out backwards by the main gear.
Especially since it's been raining like Cats and Dogs down there all day.
it's buried up to the nose gear doors and digging it out might take every bit of 5 hours to get ramps under the nose gear .
Been there, Done that!! I don't envy them one Bit !!....

I used to hear it called the Big Airport a lot more back in the old days (i.e. 80s and 90s).

Seemingly much less so these days.

I hear it almost every other time they refer to IAH in the news. HOU is just frefered to as "Hobby" or "Hobby Airport"

Ouchies.


FYI, I'm a West Coast transplant and I just refer to it as Bush airport, and HOU as Hobby.

Simple enough.

What were the pilots doing? Texting and taxiing? No but seriously, it wasn't icy obviously. Can extreme wind or whatever cause a pilot to lose control over a relatively slow taxiing aircraft?

Only the CA has a tiller on most aircraft. It was raining or had just stopped raining. The aircraft may have hydroplaned on the standing water.

It looks from the amount of grass and mud that was deposited on the taxiway in the picture that posted that the aircraft was moving at a pretty good clip.
That in itself does not mean much if it was a high speed exit from the runway and the aircraft hydroplaned off the high speed taxiway.

The photo reminds me of the SQ 77W runway excursion at MUC in November 2011, arriving from MAN (operates MAN-MUC-SIN). I never did hear what caused that. Runway was dry at the time. Ground was hard and don't think it sank in much.

I recall that clearly as I was on a KLM 737-700 AMS-MUC that had to divert to NUE for fuel due to the long delays with one of MUC's two runways closed for much of the day. My flight arrived about 2 hours late, shortly after the runway had reopened.

By the NTSB definition, those two would be considered accidents - not incidents. This one would be classified an incident, I believe..

This outoftowners still refers to it as Intercontintental.......Or that f****** airport where I have to run from one side to the other to make my connection.

Though it's been a few years since I have been through there, I always liked coming through IAH heading back from London, heading to LGW was just a pain in the butt.

Funny! Fortunately it's my home airport, so I only O/D from here as opposed to running across North Houston.

And for good order, InterGalatic. And yes, I know the flights are all terrestrial sourced and terminated but another moniker for the "big airport".
