Is This The Most Unlucky United Plane Last Week?


United Airlines flight UA878 bound from Houston to Minneapolis made not one but two unscheduled landings on Friday night which ended up with the plane running off the runway!

The Flight was first sent to Madison, Wisconsin, due to severe weather in Minneapolis. The plane then took off from Madison, but more bad weather caused another diversion, this time to Green Bay.

It is here that the plane skidded off the runway and ended up 100-150 feet off the runway. Thankfully no one was hurt.

Around 150 passengers were provided meals and hotel accommodations following the event.
