According to the flight recorder data, Turtle Air Flight 2281 was taken out by a blue shell launched from a RyanAir 737.  It lost hydraulic pressure and flight controls. It spun into the ocean at approximately 270 knots.  There were no survivors.

How long does it take to run out and grab a damn turtle off the runway?

MythDragon: How long does it take to run out and grab a damn turtle off the runway?


FTFA 12 minutes.

Tower:
Priority 1 - stop all approaches and direct to a hold
Priority 2 - contact arrivals and tell them to stall the incoming flights.
Priority 3 - contact whoever is in charge with FOD removal about the problem.
Priority 4 - deal with the jam on the ground of those waiting to depart

Grounds management:
1) Wait until the Tower give you the clear and then send a truck out
2) Truck drives a couple/few miles to the site
2) Remove the turtle and inspect for additional turtles in the area.  Truck drives several miles while doing this.
3) Once the all clear is given let the tower know.

Tower:
Start redirecting traffic to land

12 minutes is actually pretty good.  One thing you DON'T do is just send a truck and workers out into active runways and taxiways on a spur of the moment.

I guess that's why I don't have that job. I mean I figure I can see when planes are coming, wouldn't be much different than running out between cars in traffic to rescue a turtle.
Just gotta run a little faster than usual.

GREEN TORTOISE
Slowly he turned...

CSB
An old girlfriend I was head over heels with went on one of those smelly things and banged some hippie who probably hadn't bathed in ever. She let him stay at her place for a few days.
Then he robbed her blind and took off.
I was soooooo sympathetic -  mostly because I wanted to here the extent of her misery.
The schadenfreude sex was epic, then I left her.
