“Everybody was kinda like, ‘What the eff’s going on here?’” he said.

BWI Airport spokesman Jonathan Dean noted that the plane’s wheels never left the taxiway. But he confirmed the plane remains stopped on Taxiway P, and that airport operations employees, fire department, Maryland Transportation Authority Police and Southwest Airlines personnel “responded to the incident scene.”

No one was injured. Southwest Airlines did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The flight already had been delayed more than an hour before the incident. It was evacuated, and passengers were brought back inside the airport, Dean said. Skid marks on the taxiway pavement could be seen in a photo Simmons took of the plane.

All the surfaces in the airfield had been chemically treated to prevent ice from accumulating from the overnight mixed precipitation, and surface temperature was measured at 37 degrees Wednesday morning, Dean said.

Man scales fence, approaches plane at LAX

  Man scales fence, approaches plane at LAX A man apparently scaled a fence at Los Angeles International Airport Saturday, running up to a plane and causing a temporary shut down, according to police. It was believed the man may have been under the influence of narcotics when he ran onto the 24-left runway at LAX -- the most northern of the airport's four -- LAX police officer Rob Pedregon told CNN. A pilot spotted the man and the passengers on his plane had to be transferred to another aircraft, Pedregon said. "We had a temporary shutdown for the 24-left and right runways; and it was a minor shutdown," he said.

Southwest plane slides on a taxiway at BWI airport . The incident happened shortly after 10 a.m. as the aircraft was on the taxiway getting ready to take off , according to BWI spokesman Jonathan Dean.

Passengers were told to leave their their carry-on luggage on the aircraft when they disembarked — an order that caused an audible uproar in the passenger cabin, Simmons said.

“Now there’s a bunch of people at the airport who don’t have their personal belongings,” he said. “They’re saying they’re working on a strategy to get that stuff off the flight. It seems like a cluster to me. How are they going to figure out what belong to who?”

Simmons and his wife, Laura, both attorneys, had been headed on a Jamaican vacation.

Instead, they found themselves walking across the tarmac and back into the airport.
