Plane Sinks Into Hot Asphalt at Reagan Airport
How hot has it been in Washington, D.C.? Apparently hot enough for a U.S. Airways plane to sink into the asphalt at Reagan. From WaPo:
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:
I guess that’s an unforseeable delay, right?
