It more than likely blew a tire on ldg, went about 50 feet in to the mud. No injuries. No damage to the jet.

Investigation Into Latest Mid-Continent Airplane Incident Begins
By Megahn Snyder (WICHITA, Kan.)

Federal investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration will decide whether to take a deeper look into Mid-Continent's second airplane incident this week.

A Delta plane drove off the runway and into the grass Thursday night. It was rolling along at a slow speed. No one was hurt.

Local officials can't tell us why the plane went off the asphalt, but the plane was taken to a local aircraft plant for inspection.

Enough
If you are dumb enough to actually believe anyone in the news media has any idea what the hell they are going on about aviation-wise, you are one silly, silly little monkey.
Exactly. When is the last time a plane "skidded" off the runway? That's the normal verb they use.

I think that if we put one in the mud, either in a minor or a major sense, (in the eyes of the NTSB/FAA/trial lawyers), it will affect us all. ASA has an outstanding safety record; to change that could put us all out of a job. I'm not Monday morning quarterbacking, but we need to be careful out there.

Isn't there a nose wheel steering issue on those? I believe Skywest had one go off in SAT or AUS while going slow and turning. Was that attributed to nose wheel steering problems?

It appears ASA and the ASAholes strike again. I thought you would have learned after SAV.

Well said. Thankfully it didn't seem to make the news.
