Incident at Winnipeg, Manitoba


1997-04-01: Federal Express 1532, a Boeing 727-200, landed on runway 36 at Winnipeg after a scheduled flight from Grand Forks, ND. The pilot taxiied the aircraft onto taxiway "P" (perpendicular to the runway) and then attempted to taxi onto taxiway "F", but the aircraft did not respond to steering inputs and the nosewheel departed the taxiway. The crew shut down the engines and the aircraft was recovered with a tug. There was no reported damage to the aircraft or injury to the crew members, but a tow-bar was broken during the aircraft recovery. The winds at the time were 360/15, visibility was 3/4 mile in snow and fog, and about one inch of snow had accumulated on taxiway "P".
