'Slip Slidin' Incidents from ASRS

In our many years of reading ASRS reports, we've found that mentions of "slides" and "slips" frequently culminate in unfortunate outcomes. As you would expect, some of these incidents are weather-related, but many others are not. In our November issue, we offer a broad sampling of recent 'slip-slidin' incidents, including air carrier runway and taxiway excursions, cabin crew miscues, slippery maintenance procedures, and GA takeoff and landing mishaps.

Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away.

(Paul Simon)
