    Agreed, when everyone goes home after an event like this, its always a good thing.
     
    When I read that they went off the side of the runway, I thought mechanical as well. Were you still with UA when one of our Airbuses slid off into the snow in Jackson Hole?  Bad anti-skid there as I recall.  However as you said, we should wait for the investigators to do their job before jumping to conclusions.

    it's nice to NOW talk about the arresting systems knowing that the plane slid off the side of the runway but I for one didn't know WHERE the plane slid off at the time.


     
     
    I didn't say that Flight Control (that is the name of the dept. at DL) quits working with the crew. I am fully aware that the flight is a joint responsibility.

    but the CREW lands the plane. They make the decision as to whether to land.

    You are trying to believe that a tailwind on a contaminated runway was known by someone before the landing. You do realize that weather is not static, don't you?

    I'm not sure that any of us know ANYTHING for certain.

    and guess what? we don't get to vote anyway.

    The NTSB will undoubtedly investigate and they do a very good job of getting to the bottom of the issue, figuring out ALL that went wrong because they recognize that safety issues rarely involve one issue, and they are largely APOLITICAL in their findings.

    Sure, tell us about the AA FAs.

    and are you willing to admit that someone on the AA flight made an error to have been in that area and certainly without a seat beat sign on and dinner service in progress?

    I could see the storm system in the area on satellite images. Surely I am not alone.






     
    well said.

    those questions should be asked.

    and in a winter that has been relentless, was LGA really in a position to operate? or appropriately, for the type of commercial operations that were taking place.

    I don't know but those questions have to be asked.

    Bad media alert: My local ABC affiliate just stated that the plane "crashed into the water" (even while showing the same evacuation picture we've all seen). In the teaser for the national news, the anchor stated "David Muir will have more on this crash coming up."

    (sigh)

    Even better than that NBC is bringing back Brian Williams who was actually on the plane.

    Agreed. 
    having said that I don't see a point in pulling the slide. Just jump out if you had to here. 
    Hell coming off the wings was a high jump

    it looks like the F/A thought the same thing.  
    Thankfully they're all safe and we will be seeing them in a video
    next year describing their experience so we can all learn.

    I have a question here    Does the MD88 have slides over the wings that would inflate basically behind the wings?   or is it a rope of sorts?   IF so then it appears that no slide deployed     I totally understand how and why the front cld not be used although the right front door was partially opened  then blocked by the debris of fence

    No slides for window exits on the MD88  We have escape ropes that can be attached to the wings.

    The 88 wings aren't too high off the ground, fwiw... no real need for a slide?
