Last week brought you video footage of China Airlines "last minute runway deviation" at O'Hare, and in response a number of people wrote that they were interested in seeing close-up photographs of the runway. Here you go, complete with audio revealing a side to this adventure that has not yet been reported anywhere.


(The description below is from last week's video)

On June 21, 2018 a China Airlines cargo flight, CI5148, performed a go-around after touching down in the grass during an attempted landing on runway 10L at Chicago-O'Hare International Airport. Weather at the time of the incident included light rain, with 500 foot ceilings and visibility of three statute miles. I don't get it either.

Following China Airlines' deviation the runway was closed for approximately 50 minutes, as a runway inspection identified debris that needed to be cleared. Flight 5148 circled O'Hare and landed safely on runway 9R at 15:20 UTC.

Damage to the aircraft was minimal, and apart from new landscaping the damage to O'Hare amounted to a single wrecked windsock.
