That's what these guys do. Look at the squawk history of the arkviation and you'll find that the only thing they have posted is articles from Aeroxplorer. Arkviation most likely works for them.

Is he trying to pull a Patroni?
James Simms 26
It wasn’t a 707.

"Mr. Patroni, she won't take much more!"
"Well, She's gonna get it!
Hold on we're going for broke!"
"The instruction book said that was impossible.
Well, that's one nice thing about the 707, she can do everything but read!"

If it had been a 707, he would have been able to power out of the mud. It was a bad-ass airplane.

Why no video
Mark Kortum 6
There is no video because video of this minor incident would be really boring.

There was a video floating around on Facebook earlier this week of them trying to power-out of the grass with the engines screaming, but that didn't work at all.

He/She wasn't landing, he/she was being pushed back out of the gate. Tryhing to be PC this morning...

Ok.. how do you screw up a pushback? You have wing walkers to make sure that doesn’t happen.
John Taylor 6
Shit happens. No one ever made a mistake while wing walking before. Plus, the ground was wet and the tug could have easily lost traction under the weight of a fully loaded aircraft.

How you make a critical comment Allen when you haven’t even read the paragraph. Must be a bug up your………

Um, not always! I’ve seen “accidents” at my airport when these people don’t follow directions! Also, there’s a tug driver. And tow bar. All could have issues.
It isn’t rocket science…..unless you want it to be.

Those 737 Max aircraft seem to have an insatiable desire to make contact with terrain.

Mark Kortum 6
They want you to be scared. Scared people make bad decisions and give up their freedom.
David Beattie 4
Scared people have to carry an AR-15 to go to the grocery store.
Jon Schwartz -4
I'm scared of them...they have already talked away our freedom..that's why things are so messed up....

We have no freedom. They tell us what kind of toilet to go in
