Snow May Be A Factor In Delta Plane Sliding Into Mud

DETROIT (WWJ) – The snowy weather may be to blame for a Delta plane that got stuck in the mud Sunday afternoon at Detroit Metro Airport.

A spokesman says the plane – which had arrived from Las Vegas, taxied down to the end of the runway, turned off the pavement, and got stuck in the mud.

Delta was able to get the equipment to push the plan back onto the pavement. No passengers had to be unloaded, and no one was injured.

Although the cause is unknown, the spokesman says the plane may have skidded as it was turning.
