If they spent more time with the traffic controlers, other than feeling up the passengers by a afro-american federal employee we wouldn't have these problems!

these types of things can be avoid if they (airport personnel) would simply install guard rails on either side of the runway..... agree that ntsb would be the investigative authority on this accident...the reporter needs to learn to ask intelligent questions when covering a story and not just shelp along....

Whose jet was it? All the reporter needeed to do was obtain the registration number of the plane to ascertain who owns the craft.

Should've been flyin' in a G-6.

"these types of things can be avoid if they (airport personnel) would simply install guard rails on either side of the runway"...
Are you kidding me? Think this through..why do you suppose guard rails on runways might not be a good idea?

Excuse me, NBC 29. The Obama administration would like for you to refer to these types of aircraft as "COPORATE" jets. Lest we forget the people who fly and own these aircraft are evil and greedy.

That might make sense to a clueless few, except many in his cabinet and donors have flown in them.

Just read the article in the Daily Progress on charging for EMS transport. Did the rescue crews remain on the scene hoping to get a paying customer? Do they need to get a special permit to hang around the airport like the taxi's do?

before you read this think...funny...stupid idea...etc. etc...and maybe you'll get....this could have all been avoided if the airport would install guard rails on either side of the runway....I know this went right over some of your pin heads...but for the few, the proud, the intelligent who will get it ...I say thanks...the rest of you go back to sleep......

Did any of you take note of the weather conditions when this happened? 40-60 mph winds and extremely heavy rain do make a difference

If you have never landed an airplane in stiff cross wind you are missing a real adrenaline buzz.

Thats absurd; you are clearly ignorant about planes.

Most have fuel tanks in the wings. So instead of a plane simply stuck in the mud, you would have a triple fatality and $10 Million aircraft burned to the ground when those tanks were ruptured and fuel poured into hot engines.
