Didn't mean to attch it twice - both MP3s are the same.

No problem, I detached one of them for you.

I heard an aircraft went off the end this morning, but didn't know it was a Gulfstream.  Thanks for the info and the clip!

Thanks for the picture.  I think it's a Gulfstream 200 like you had first mentioned, I looked it up in the FAA Registry Database (N729QS).

How did they get the airplane out of the snow and back onto a taxiway ?

Gulfstream 200 = IAI Galaxy.

They changed the name of it when Gulfstream bought out IAI.

Pulled it out with a truck. I swear, I'm gonna start keeping a video camera with me at work - I was kicking myself for not having one!

With the weather this bad they probably couldn't see the aircraft. If the aircraft reported on the taxiway (which from what I got outta it he did) how was the tower guy to know?
