Fortunately no injuries, but a couple of interesting comments! Was it raining yesterday?

Sensational headline again !! From what I have read, and if you read the article, it slipped from the side of the taxiway ???? As I understood it aircraft larger than a 757 had to do a lot of 'back tracking' to avoid that taxiway ..... !!

Unbelievable sensationalism, the aircraft went onto the grass from the taxiway, not the runway.
Kieth, that's not true about that taxiway, I have sat behind 777s on there before. luckily I am on leave and didn't get caught up in it all. I did hear a rumour they were avoiding a squirrel.
