I am surprised the spoilers were already stowed. Were they trying for a high speed exit? Nobody hurt. That's all I care about.

Not sure the whole story. But yeah, glad everyone is safe.

American Eagle was attempting a left hand turn onto the taxiway entrance, but began to slide.

An ERJ pilot on another forum I read mentioned they auto retract at 25 knots or so. You can see them retract just before the plane slides into the grass.

Oh OK, I did not know that. Thanks for letting me know.

Oh my god. Why would they do that when the plane’s on the ground...

I've always wondered after something like this happens and the plane is inspected, does it get flown without passengers to make sure everything is okay before being placed back in service?

I might be misunderstanding, forgive me. Please bear with me here while i ask an ignorant question. Why would it ever be necessary for gear to retract while the plane is on the ground?

It’s not the landing gear he was referring to, it was the ground spoilers. No idea about the inner workings of the 135/145, but at low speeds, spoilers are useless.

A good friend of mine, is a 737 pilot. He looked up the O'Hare weather at the time.
3/4 mile visibility 1100 foot vertical ceiling in blowing snow. Up to a 90 degree crosswind with winds 17kts gusting to 26kts.
One thing that was brought to my attention. Possibly, the nose gear steering broke?

If its a gear issue they either do a ground retract and extension test or a test flight with no passengers. Depends on the issue.

This plane has major damage - landing gear broke as it sunk into the soft turf, and the wing attachment to the fuselage at a weird angle, maybe broken. This one might be a write-off? Doug

On a 21-year-old RJ, that's what I'm thinking.

If the wing spar is cracked, I believe it is done. Given 21 years of age, and hours, it likely is done anyway. Destined for American Eagle parts stores I would imagine.

Everytime I fly through ORD I always hope I slide off the runway and get hit by a plane too... I feel ya ERJ.
