So aeroxplorer doesn't like ad blockers. Too bad!

That's what these guys do. Look at the squawk history of the arkviation and you'll find that the only thing they have posted is articles from Aeroxplorer. Arkviation most likely works for them. Other posts of Aeroxplorer articles are from people that have some connection to the site. It's run by mostly high school and college age kids. That why most of their articles are fairly short and not very in-depth.

I copy the article title and usually, I find the articles on other sites that don't force me to watch ads.

It wasn’t a 707.

"Mr. Patroni, she won't take much more!"
"Well, She's gonna get it!
Hold on we're going for broke!"
"The instruction book said that was impossible.
Well, that's one nice thing about the 707, she can do everything but read!"

If it had been a 707, he would have been able to power out of the mud. It was a bad-ass airplane.

Why no video

There is no video because video of this minor incident would be really boring.

There was a video floating around on Facebook earlier this week of them trying to power-out of the grass with the engines screaming, but that didn't work at all.

Ok.. how do you screw up a pushback? You have wing walkers to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Shit happens. No one ever made a mistake while wing walking before. Plus, the ground was wet and the tug could have easily lost traction under the weight of a fully loaded aircraft.

Um, not always! I’ve seen “accidents” at my airport when these people don’t follow directions! Also, there’s a tug driver. And tow bar. All could have issues.
It isn’t rocket science…..unless you want it to be.

Those 737 Max aircraft seem to have an insatiable desire to make contact with terrain.

They want you to be scared. Scared people make bad decisions and give up their freedom.
