Allegiant 405 Off Runway At ICT

Tue Dec 29, 2015 4:50 am

Apparently the ice/freezing rain is wreaking havoc at ICT.

Indeed, and probably could have happened to any operator before someone jumps at the fact that it's Allegiant.

Nobody is blaming Allegiant....you're literally making an argument against yourself.

I agree no one is blaming G4, however the title saying off the runway made it seem worse to me than it was... IMO

Seems pretty straightforward to me, Allegiant Flight 405 went off the runway at IC-T.

Get it?

"IC"

I'll show myself out.

Seems to be standard ops around here. Says clear as day taxiway on the linked page, but somehow the OP prefers to morph it into "runway".

Put'em up in hotels, gave'em a voucher and waived change and cancellation fees?!

Not too shabby.

I'm just relieved he didn't use the "tarmac" in the title. The on line article did use "tarmac," however.

Hello all,

@FlyHossD, " Tarmac Terror " is my best, hated phrase. I just want to find a reporter and back-hand them when I hear that. Anyone affiliated with ABC news love to use that one....

True. However I'm betting that this will be a part of the montage of incidents reporters will talk about when something really bad happens.

+1

There are certain terms that the news media seems to use - overuse, really - to give themselves gravitas in reporting aviation issues and "tarmac" is one of them.

The chronic erroneous reporting about aviation issues makes me wonder - doubt - everything else they report about. And then I laugh when the media wonders why they keep losing viewers, subscribers and members.

I would imagine they are just as "accurate" in their reporting of medicine, legal issues, food nutrition, global warming, etc.

Quoting experts like scientists take care of that problem. But your off topic concern is noted.
