Empty American jet goes off D/FW airport taxiway

GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) — An American Airlines jet taxiing to a maintenance hangar slid off a taxiway at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport during freezing weather Monday.

A spokeswoman for the airline said there were no passengers on board and nobody was hurt. The MD-80 jet came to a stop in a grassy area and wasn't damaged, the spokeswoman said.

The Fort Worth-based airline was investigating how the incident happened and if weather played a role. The jet was being towed from a gate for routine maintenance. All three sets of landing gear went into the grass.

Later Monday, a second American Airlines jet suffered minor damage when a winglet clipped a building, spokeswoman Andrea Huguely said. It wasn't clear whether the freezing temperatures played a role in the incident.
