Oops! The double yellow line is the edge stripe, not the centerline.

Will they have to unload the whole aircraft or is it a simple tug'er out job? I can't imagine it would be the later, but I also can't imagine that unloading is the simplest way to do it.

If anything, I love aviation because it pushes everything to the limit. In a perfect world, every airplane should leave such a trail of destruction behind, gives you a real comic like idea of how powerful and massive that stuff really is.

Fantastic, unique picture!

Whoops...I guess they're not kidding when they post those weight restrictions on airport navigation charts!

Very interesting. I wonder for how long the pilot rolled like this until he noticed. In any case, taxiing an MD-11 so far away from the centerline is just insane.

Isn't it amazing how the hard ground couldn't support the aircraft's weight...yet the air can support it in flight!

Fedex heavy you are tearing up our tarmac, stop your taxi immediately and be sure to stop by the tower and collect our repair bill...

What an amazing capture - to think thats only a proportion of the weight of the whole aircraft - makes you realise just how tough the undercarriage must be. Embarassing for the pilots though...

Thye must have had a problem with their steering to get that far off the centerline

I think the pilot plowed the asphalt so it maybe could grow new taxilights :)

They have pulled it out by three of tow trucks, but the aircraft still parking at the taxiway. They have to change some parts to leave. As my best knowledge there was no problem with steering. Pay attention next time Captain! :)

Emm That plane is gonna be late doing its delivery, maybe they should rename the logo on the aircraft to 'Ex Fed Ex' !

So what happens to the Captain now? Would this situation be regarded as fault on his/her part? Who will eventually pay for the taxiway and aircraft damage? Interesting comment from US visitor on previously witnessed incident "...I saw water squirt out from the concrete cracks all the way up to the wings...". Did you mean water-squirting as in broken underground water pipes or some other phenomenon?

Hey Sweden, great comment! "Plowed the asphalt to grow new taxiway edge-lights".

This is a great capture.

Obviously there was an issue with the material under the surface...it looks like water eroded some of the dirt away, or it was not constructed properly.

Shows how much weight are on those wheels..!

The shoulder was in perfect order, it's just not made for taxiing (That's what the taxiway is for..).

This demonstrates the purpose of the double yellow line, pavement outside of the double yellow is normally not stressed for the heaviest aircraft to use that airport - hence, the importance of tracking the centerline.

It's not really an insanely unsafe fleet. When the pilots are not following the thick yellow line, nobody needs to wonder ;)

Shoulder not designed to take weight - should not stray wheels out of yellow line. Simple error will be very costly.

Really shows how heavy these heavys really are doesnt it? But great capture and one costly both money and jobs wise for the pilot and possibly 1st officer.

Well... see it on the bright side, they didn't run over that taxiway light, that will save them a couple of bucks, i guess...

Would a highway ever take the weight of an airliner this big if it were to make an emergency landing for instance?
