Delta: Flight delayed by Mud
Delta Flight 1763 McDonnell Douglas MD-88 en route from Washington DC to Minneapolis was on the tarmac when the right gear left the pavement and got mired in a foot of mud.
160 passengers had to disembark on to the runway. They were bussed back to the terminal, and their takeoff was delayed.
Meanwhile airport crews had to get the plane unstuck.
Passengers scheduled on the 2:53 flight were put on a delayed flight that arrived in Minneapolis/St Paul Intl at Gate G19 at 8:13 p.m..
