Delta Flight 1086 Crash Cause Under Review
The other day as many travelers, including myself, were trying to get out of the Northeast to beat the snow, Delta flight 1086 touched down at La Guardia and skidded off the runway to a crashing halt just short of the bay.
The reports from other flights that landed prior to the flight crashing indicated that the runway was ok to land with no braking problems.
So it comes as no surprise that Delta’s MD-88 is under review for brake problems. According to this Wall Street Journal Report, they cite two Unidentified sources that a brake issue is under review.
Just glad there were no critical injuries and that the plane stopped before skidding into the bay at the end of the runway. Will be interesting to hear the final conclusions from this accident and how it can be prevented in the future.
