Frontier Airlines Plane Dug Out of Mud at New Castle Airport
It took just over 21 hours to get a Frontier Airlines plane out of the mud at the New Castle Airport yesterday.
The effort involved ground crews that included the Delaware Air National Guard who eventually got the aircraft free at around 6:45 p.m. last night.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that the crews could be seen working into the evening yesterday where the plane had been stuck for nearly a day.
Flight 1435 had been scheduled to fly to Orlando Florida on Sunday night.
When the plane tried to take off on Sunday it apparently lurched around with the wheel stuck in the ground.
The News Journal reports there were no injuries and the operations at the New Castle Airport were not affected.
