Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
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.
