UCAP Listener Involved In Possible Delta OFLotW

Postby nickm1622 » Fri Nov 20, 2009 12:02 am

Just have to say that a UCAP listener (yours truly) just got home from a very exciting yet uneventful trip back from ATL to ICT... Except for the last 10 seconds of the flight when we landed a little hard and as we were about halfway down the runway we all the sudden veered of the pavement and into the grass. Supposedly we popped a tire, but it was hard to tell as the gear was buried up to the tires in mud. No one was injured and the pilot did a good job of getting us stopped and the engines shut down. Just thought I would share my exciting evening.

I wonder if there's an NTSP report on this?

Yeah. I am curious to find out how quickly the NTSB report gets published. BTW, it happened right down the runway we were watching from the Hangar One Tower Bar at the UCAP meetup.

Just a quick update... My wife and I each received a $200 voucher for Delta. There was also a blurb in the letter saying that they would take care of any injuries incurred... Man my neck sure has been sore lately. ;) Still no NTSB report. Still very curiuos to find out if we did in fact lose a tire or if the Pilot was really trying to make A6 taxiway and just didn't make it.
