Plane Slides Off Icy Taxiway

ROMULUS, Mich. (December 23, 2013) A Delta jet headed to Atlanta slid off a taxiway Monday at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

No one was hurt.

The plane "may have hit some black ice," before sliding from the taxiway on to a grassy area at around 6:40 a.m. Monday, Delta Air Lines spokesman Morgan Durrant said.

Durrant says all 180 passengers safely got off the plane.

They were taken back to the terminal by bus and re-booked on a flight scheduled to take off later in the day.

Durrant says Delta technicians are working to move and inspect the aircraft.
