Delta taxi mishap KPIT, 10 Feb 2021

DL2231 was lining up for take off last night and skidded off the taxiway when it tried to turn on to 10R. The front wheels went over the edge of ditch, so everyone had to exit via the tailcone. (Boeing 717.)

The aircraft has now been lifted out of the “ditch.” There’s a video here: https://www.wtae.com/article/airplan...rport/35475104

Does the top of the fuselage look crumpled, or is that just the lighting?

Hard to tell from that picture, but there might be a wrinkle in the top just forward of the wing.
