Delta Airlines plane 'skids off runway' in New York


Reports from New York say a passenger plane has skidded off the runway in snowy conditions at LaGuardia Airport.

There were no immediate reports of injuries, according to the New York City Fire Department.

It is understood that Delta Airlines Flight 1086 from Atlanta missed the runway while landing on Thursday morning amid a winter storm, and crashed into a fence.

The aircraft is said to have had 125 passengers and five crew members on board. Passengers were evacuated from the aircraft on slides and moved to the terminal on buses.

LaGuardia airport’s runways were closed due to what the Federal Aviation Administration described as an “aircraft incident”.
