Heat Wave Causes U.S. Airways Plane To Get Stuck In Pavement At Reagan National Airport PDF Print E-mail

Things were proceeding normally Friday evening as a US Airways flight was leaving the gate at Reagan National Airport to begin its flight to Charleston, S.C.

But the temperature reached 100 degrees in Washington on Friday and that apparently softened the airport paving enough to immobilize the airplane. The small vehicle that usually tows planes away from the gate tugged and pulled, but the plane was stuck.  “It was apparently a soft spot caused by the heat,” airline spokeswoman Michelle Mohr said, and the airplane “wouldn’t move.”

A jet airliner getting stuck in the airport tarmac appeared to be one of the more unusual incidents that occurred in the Washington area amid a blistering string of daily temperatures above 95 degrees.

It was “pretty rare,” Mohr said. But then, she noted, “we’ve also had very unusual temperatures.”

When the first tug failed to budge the 50-seat regional jet, the 35 passengers got off.

Then, a second, bigger tow vehicle was brought in. The passengers got back on.

The larger tug pulled the airliner from its rut to a place where it could start its engines. After a delay of about three hours, it was on its way to Charleston.
