Southwest Airlines Plane Skids Off Runway, Killing 1

(As noted yesterday, I hope you’re not hearing this first from me…)

A Southwest Airlines 737 skidded off the runway yesterday during a snowstorm at Chicago Midway, killing a boy who was in a car struck by the aircraft.  Please ignore some of the speculation I’ve already heard on the news this morning that Midway’s runways are too short.  This is nonsense.

(on a personal note, I flew out of Midway airport yesterday morning and it was sunny…hard to believe the snowy scene I saw on the news last night was the same day.)
