JACKSON, Wyoming — At about 10:45 a.m. this morning, December 27, a Gulfstream G200 Galaxy slid into a snowbank shortly after landing at the Jackson Hole Airport.

The aircraft failed to execute the turn onto the southernmost taxiway exit, hitting an adjacent snowbank, Jackson Hole Airport Executive Director Jim Elwood confirmed to Buckrail.

Elwood explained that the incident caused the runway to close for about an hour due to safety concerns. Ground crews used machinery and also hand shoveled to clear snow around the aircraft. Straps were then attached to the landing gear to pull the jet out and back onto the hard surface.

Elwood confirmed that the incident caused a number of delays on top of the delays already underway due to the weather.

At the time, a number of planes were scheduled to land and at least one diverted to Salt Lake City for more fuel. “At least four aircraft were delayed,” Elwood said.

According to the Jackson Hole Airport website, 12 arriving commercial flights were late so far today and two have been canceled. For departures, another 12 flights are delayed and two have been canceled. Flights departing after 4:45 p.m. and flights arriving after 3:56 p.m. are listed as on time.

According to Elwood, there was no apparent damage to the Gulfstream G200 Galaxy and all eight occupants on board the aircraft were uninjured.

Elwood also noted that an aircraft that had landed just minutes before the G200 reported that braking was “good”, based on the amount of friction.

“We are expecting things to move back towards typical operations for this day,” Elwood said.
