Really? Wow, if we could only all be as smart as saab fo's...none of this "stupid crap" would ever happen. What an @ss!Slid off while turning off the high speed taxiway on 22L in DTW.
It's still winter....slow down guys or turn off at the next high speed!!! We definately don't need this kind of stupid crap.
Interference from a cell phone caused a malfunction of the anti-skid system and forced the aircraft off the runway. Thankfully everyone survived. The pilots are heroes!Emergency responders check out NWA flight 3621 after sliding off the runway at 11:15am on Sunday Feb 22. It was a slow speed slide with no damage.

This is so true, watch out when using A4 in DTW.. the runways have been fine, but that highspeed has been terrible all winter.. a pinnacle 200 went off the runway/taxiway earlier this winter at A4, and now Mesaba..I talked to an A320 Capt on the crew bus who almost went off the pavement at A4 too.. so its everyone, not just the "inexperienced" regional pilots having issues with that highspeed.One thing that I have noticed from this hellish winter, is that runways are in better shape than taxiways. What seems like good traction, turns to crap as soon as you transition off the runway to a taxiway.
