That was pretty neat. He made an almost U-turn and stayed on the taxiway. Maybe they teach that somewhere.

All I can say is glad it was not moi:D Those engine have a fair amount of thrust at idle. The slippery conditions would mean both engines were running. The engine anti-ice was on I'm sure which means an even higher idle. Sounds like a good day to call in sick.

Yep. Obviously a strong wind and glare ice.

Nothing the pilots can do in a situation like that if they are not informed before they enter that ramp or taxiway.

Physics wins.

Actually, physics always wins...

I'm sure this video will be shown in every recurrent ground school until the end of time.

Not a good feeling, especially as I am currently in Rochester watching the snow fall.

With the parked aircraft nearby, that coulda been expensive.

A few weeks ago I landed in MSP. It had been light freezing rain all day. Taxied in at an absolute crawl. Deplaned, loaded up and headed out to the de-ice pad--at a crawl again. After 45 minutes of spraying the aircraft, and just about to head to the end of the runway for takeoff, FA A calls and say a couple in row 6 are engaged in some sort of sex act.

We we call for a gate, call to have the cops waiting and crawl back to the gate. All the related grief takes 45 minutes or so. After that we very carefully head back to the de-ice pad to start the whole process over again. About 3000 lbs of fuel and 2 hours late we finally get out of there.

the airport does a great job. If you need to operate in freezing rain, MSP is the place.

Is there a chance those idiots will pay?

The MSP cops took them away to wherever they take such people. They took witness statements from all around them. I usually don't hear anything more.
