    It was a flight they won’t soon forget.

    Dozens of commuters landing at LaGuardia Airport were left rattled Saturday after their plane slid off a runway and got stuck in a snowbank, officials said.

    The Delta shuttle flight from Chicago had just landed at the Queens airport and was making a turn onto the taxiway about 11:50 a.m. when it began to slide, officials said.

    The front of the plane ended up getting stuck in a snowbank on the side of the taxiway as a result.

    Is that a "brakes off, okay to tow" sign in the window?

    Wouldn't think so since we have tow lights on the nose gear and I see the forward service panel is open for ground crews to deactivate the nose wheel steering.

    No, I work EWR but usually that's something you'd hear through the grapevine. Unless it's just not a big deal anymore lol

    Well we know it's not OO right? As for the paper, it's ALL my CAs and paperwork. From IOE to present day it's always close to that.

    That's a message to the line guys that the normal Lav servicing will have to be extended to cockpit seats today.



    BTW, @Oxman, great post headline! :)
