(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.)
