This morning, a Shanghai Airlines Boeing 737-800, Reg #B5370, slid off a taxiway at Urumqi Diwopu International Airport due to snowy conditions.
The flight FM9220 was scheduled to leave for Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport at 9:30 a.m., according to VariFlight, but
At around 10:30 a.m., the plane’s front tire skidded off the icy taxiway when turning around due to the cockpit crew’s improper operation, said Shanghai Airlines.
