Delta Plane Rolls Off Taxiway at Atlanta Airport
(ATLANTA) — A Delta airplane sustained significant damage when it veered off a taxiway early Tuesday morning while undergoing maintenance at the world’s busiest airport in Atlanta, local ABC News affiliate WSB-TV reports.
According to a Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson, the Boeing 737-700 rolled off the taxiway at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport around 5 a.m.
Eric Torbinson, a spokesman for Delta, said two maintenance workers were on board testing the jet’s engines when the braking system failed. No passengers were on the plane, and the two workers were unharmed.
The FAA said the incident has not led to any traffic delays at the airport.
