Video of Delta 717 taking a slide in the ice

February 12, 2021

A Delta Air Lines 717 has taken a slide in the icy conditions that are gripping the north-east of the USA on Wednesday night.

The end result at Pittsburgh is captured by this graphic video below.

The Boeing 717 was operating flight Flight 2231, to Atlanta with 77 people aboard.

The 717 left the taxiway at 6.30 pm in snow and the FAA said the taxiway was icy.

All passengers were taken from the aircraft after about three hours and put on other flights.

The 717, which came to rest near a ravine, is virtually undamaged.
