Boeing B737 Taxiway Excursion Due to Ice

The crew of the Easyjet Boeing 737-700 that slipped on Schiphol Airport on the 22 December 2003, was insufficiently informed about the iciness of the taxiway. As the taxiway was covered with ice, the aircraft, when taking a turn, no longer reacted to the nose wheel steering. As a consequence, the aircraft skidded and the left wing of the aircraft collided with a lamppost. The collision seriously damaged the aircraft and the lamppost.
